Those of you who are in the path of hurricane Isaac you’ve got lots of people in the elevator industry thinking about you as it hits landfall soon. My hope is that it doesn’t create the damage the last one did. Fellow industry family members, if there’s anything we can assist with, other than making the storm go away, please send me an e-mail and we'll do our best to assist.

Another nice short show today as I’m running on empty. I’m not sure who is suffering more with the kids being back to school, them or my wife and I. Between the running around after school to football and volleyball practices and then watching the kids get there home work done, I'm not sure who is working harder each day, them or us.  All I know is that I can’t wait for the three day weekend coming up. Even if it’s raining, it will still be nice to have a break. Enjoy your three day weekend everyone and if you’re in the path of the hurricane, be safe. Thanks to Tom & John for sharing the photos below. Have a fun photo you'd like me to share? Send it to me!
