Goldsboro, North Carolina pretty much shut down as hurricane Florence moved in but the Waffle House stayed open 24 hours a day,straight through the storm serving up comfort food as the storm wailed away outside. I know yeah Waffle House is always open 24/7 no matter what.Nor rain or hurricane, it always open. This is a limited menu that we have for today.
随着弗洛伦斯飓风的到来,北卡罗莱纳的戈尔兹伯勒几乎关闭了,但是“华夫饼屋”却一天24小时不间断地开门营业,在暴风雨中提供让你温暖的食物,而暴风雨则在外面呼啸而过。我知道,是的,华夫饼屋总是24小时营业。无论风雨,还是飓风,它的大门总是敞开着。这是我们今天的限量菜单。
One reason it’s so busy, hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians lost electricity.I’m getting a sausage egg and hash brown ball and a waffle.I came to Waffle House because I love this. I lost electricity in my home; I can’t cook, I can’t bathe; I do have water to drink.
它如此繁忙的一个原因是,成千上万的北卡罗来纳人失去了电力。我要一个香肠蛋,一个土豆杂色球和一个华夫饼。我来华夫饼屋是因为我喜欢这儿。我家里停电了,我没法做饭,不能洗澡,虽然我还有水喝。
The local Waffle House is something like a public utility in some communities.Waffle Houses are so reliable that Federal Emergency Authorities used these so-called Waffle House metric to determine just how bad a storm is.They come like a situation like this is always about our community, you know.That why it implies the tip might be good. They feel bad that we have to work till midnight. Everybody else is closed but we’re still open so for the most part that’s why they would be so generous when they come to the tip.I love it, I can’t lie.
在一些社区,当地的华夫饼屋有点像公共设施。华夫饼屋是如此可靠,以至于联邦应急部门使用这些所谓的华夫饼屋来衡量一场风暴到底有多严重。客人的到来,这都是为了我们的社区。这就是我说为什么它暗示着小费可能会收得多。我们得工作到半夜,他们感到过意不去。其他地方都关了,但我们还开着,所以在很大程度上,这就是为什么他们会如此慷慨付小费。我喜欢这样,不骗你。
Today was three times busier than Christmas which is this locations usual busiest day of the year.We’ve been really really busy today. We’ve been busy since last night actually.Mostly everybody that comes here lights are out but we do get some customers time to time;they’re just want to come and eat with us in the Waffle House so you know, we still got to take care of them.For some companies, hurricanes are good business.
今天人数是圣诞节的三倍,是平常一年中最繁忙的日子。我们今天真的很忙。实际上从昨晚开始我们就一直很忙。大多数时候人们到的时候都已经熄灯了,但我们的一些顾客还是来了,他们只是想和我们一起在华夫饼屋吃饭,所以我们还是得照顾他们。对某些产业来说,飓风刮来了好生意。
