Well as last week the east coast was slammed with snow we here in the Midwest were as well on Sunday, in fact it was a full out blizzard. And not the kind you get for dessert at Dairy Queen. The storm didn’t drop as much snow as it did in Boston but still enough to make most of us pretty darn tired from trying to keep up with it as it fell. With more snow in the forecast I’m looking forward to an early spring.

Elevator Radio Show - Video/Audio Show #375 - Week 10/08/14 Yippee the internet is working again. I’m telling you, what would we do without it? Read the paper? Talk to one another in person? Make a phone call? I honestly think all of those are good things. I kept some articles from last week’s show notes just to comment on them. So if you’re seeing them again it’s for a reason and you’re not going crazy. It was nice to see everyone at the Chicago Elevator Association meeting last week, especially some friends from out of town who were in the area attending the ASME Elevator Code meetings. Special thanks go out to John Rearick, James Herrity as well as his wife Colleen who I had the pleasure of having dinner with as well as the all of those who sit on code committees to help make our industry safer. Your work does not go unnoticed.
