Post: August 17th, 2011: ERS-2011-08-17 #265 Show Notes

Click Here to download ERS-2011-08-17 #265 Gorgeous weather here in Chicago, this is what I wish it were like all year round. With all the rain that’s hit much of the United States it was just a matter of time when a story like the one posted first in the show happened?  If you can believe it there was a tragic death in Houston where a woman drowned in an elevator during Tropical Storm Allison which made many realize the importance of pit flood sensors and circuitry to move the elevator up to the top floor and park it. Glad that the incident in NY didn’t have the same outcome.  Those of you attending the NAESA International Conference in Portland have a great time this week. Wish I were there!
