MTA Escalators

Elevator Radio Show - Video/Audio Show #380 - Week 11/19/14

Audio Podcast: Elevator Radio Show - Video/Audio Show #380 - Week 11/19/14 ers-trkyWinter has come with a vengeance and I’m already looking forward to this weekend where temps are predicted to be in the upper 40’s, what’s wrong with me. For our listeners in NY or just East of Buffalo I’m glad that the snow you’re getting isn’t falling on Chicago.  Short show today but a couple of articles are filled with stupidness, yes I know that’s not a real word but I feel it fits the context of what I’m going to cover today. Next week there will be no show. I’m headed to the snow frozen Northwoods of Wisconsin with my family and plan on enjoying it. From my family to yours, have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. Be back with a new show the first week of December. Oh and one more thing, if you're looking for a new sweatshirt, consider this one. I know it's a bit much for a sweatshirt but I make no money on any of the items over on our goodies store. Everything is marked up $5 if you can believe it and that same $5 goes back to the EESF. It's a win win for everyone; they get $5, you have cool gear your coworkers will wish they had.

Maybe it’s the cold weather keeping those news stories away and maybe it’s just the fact that there was so much bad news last week that this week is much smoother and easier to get through.  In any case it's a shorter show today, fewer articles but a few of them very important. As the MTA and Washington Metro are both brought back into the public light with some very interesting perspectives as to why the escalators and elevators are broken so often.

Is everyone getting ready for the holidays and the end of the year? Always a hectic time for many just hang in there and try to remember what’s important this time of year. Shorter show today, enjoy the break!
