The two are from Westerville, but they spent the weekend getting used to their hotel room after hoping to spend the night watching the concert on town.

The two said the storm cut their plans for Saturday night at the worst possible time when Barry Manilow was in the middle of his gig!

“We went to the concert and it got dark and they said it wouldn’t start until 11 or 12 o’clock at night and it started at 7 am Hotel was about 40 blocks from our location,” said Sarah.

The storm turned many of the plans they had during their annual mother and daughter outing on their heads.

“In 20 years or in 30 years we’re going to be talking about this trip and it wasn’t what we planned, but we did it,” said Cyndi
