Winter had arrived here in Chicago and with a pretty cold vengeance. It snowed over the weekend and my boys had a blast building a snow fort. They are working on making it a multi story and asked if I could bring some parts home so they could install an elevator in it. I’ll keep you posted on how they progress. Today is our anniversary show and over the weekend I pulled the download statistics since we first started this show back in 2005. All I can say is WOW and thanks for sharing this show with others. I never in a million years would have believed how much support and passion you’ve shown me and it keeps me going. As always I can’t thank you enough for being elevator advocates in what you do each day and for the comments and support you’ve shown me. You are part of my family and I will never forget that.

Terrible accident on the show today involving an elevator mechanic, make sure you are working safe out there! And remember the EESF, another child was seriously injured after an escalator accident.
