Bad timing, quick fix: early morning boiler room shutdown

At 5:45 this morning, management sent out the following email:

Please be advised that the Boiler Room is having and electrical problem with the boilers. The crews are in and working on this problem.

We apologize for this inconvenience.

Less than an hour later, this update:

We have repaired the electrical problem in the Boiler Room and the steam and hot water is starting to flow everybody should have heat and hot water by 8:30.

Again we apologize for this inconvenience.

And then another update at 8:15:

As said in my prior email everything has been completed and we are pushing the steam slowly so we do not overload the system. We will then be pushing out the hot water. By 11:00 we will be in full operation with the steam and hot water.

Again we apologize for this inconvenience.

Have a Good Day
