    For those that think I do nothing all day. (Monday from hell)


    Here's a rough scenario of my past hour & 1/2.

    There was a power dip in the whole city of Boston before 5pm. Nothing that many people really noticed.... they only noticed what happened afterwards.

    This triggered evator entrapments all over the city, including one in my building.
    I had to keep in contact w/ the guy in the elevator as much as possible during the time he was trapped.
    I also had to contact my supervisor, manager and security control to update them of the situation.
    I had to dispatch security to two floors, one of which the guy may get out on.
    Shortly after that, a report of lights flickering like crazy on the 14th floor and 16-20 which also required a response.
    As I was dealing with that the fire alarm went off and a second elevator shut down.
    ALL elevators shut down shortly after that & went into FIRE mode.
    Then another elevator failed... that's three... one in each of the elevator banks (low, high, mid)
    We had to evacuate three floors (13-15).
    Boston Fire shows up and I had to deal with them.
    On top of all of this, the cleaners are arriving and I need to issue them their ID's.
    Then there's a report of another elevator entrapment in another one of my buildings.
    Then the power went out in a THIRD building that i'm responsible for dispatching to.
    As people were leaving work or being evacuated (during RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC) a car broke down on the ramp blocking the main garage exit. Garage traffic had to be redirected and the car had to be pushed out of the way.

    All of these incidents started within 5-10 minutes of eachother except for the car on the ramp, that happened around 5:30.

    I was the one person in charge of coordinating a full response to all of this with 4 building engineers, Boston Fire, Elevator technicians, 3 people from property managment and all security personel (my managers, my supervisor, security control (HUGE pain in my ass) and about 10 of my officers). At one point I was dealing with a person on the intercom (the guy stuck in the elevator), two people on different lines on the security phone, my work nextel and another auxilary phone, all at the same time. That doesn't include the Boston Fire Chief that was breathing down my neck asking me questions about the elevators & fire panel.

    Once everything started coming back online & we began letting people back in all of the elevators began shutting down for cleaning so I had to manually return those to service.

    This lasted from 5 o'clock till about 15 minutes ago and I wrote up just a summary of what happened that doesn't even come close to describing the chaos that came with it. I'm still dealing w/ the fallout but had just enough time to throw this together for all you that had a miserable monday


    ... now off to write a plethora of incident reports.

    troubleshot my car all morning, didn't work... rolled it down the hill & bump started it, drove to work praying I didn't stall it accidentally, got lucky as hell & found a spot right at the top of a ramp so i can roll down that to start it again when I leave, then all the other usual boring monotony associated w/ my job that no one wants to hear about.

    +1 - at least it wasn't lobby treats again...

    As for the car - when you turn the key does it make a loud click, and just not turn over? Check all the connections - unhook the battery, and then unhook each connection and clean them up with sandpaper. If that doesn't fix it - check the ground cables. Take a set of jumper cables and run a lead from the negative side of the battery to the ground post on the starter. Be careful if you try to run a lead from the positive post of the starter to the battery - big amps, big sparks, if bare metal makes contact.

    If none of this fixes it - it's the starter, not the wiring.
