Cold Water Log: Day 3

Today, I got out of bed and rushed to the faucet hoping there would be hot water. No, just freezing cold. I checked my email and found this from Maureen Isleib:

I’m sorry to report there is another mechanical issue at High Rise impacting the hot water. The air compressor failed that provides control air to all the pneumatic controls for the mechanicals, including the water heaters. The timing is unimaginable.

We will have this situation corrected by mid morning as the replacement compressor is on site and only has to be wired. We had anticipated this failure due to the existing machines condition and had the replacement unit shipped to us and delivered to High Rise earlier this week. Our electricians will be on the job first thing Wednesday morning. We will attempt to provide air temporarily by either manual means or babysitting the failed compressor long enough to get hot water to the building for morning showers. Terribly sorry for the inconvenience. I’ll update you all on this latest development as soon as things are back to normal.

Useful would be the times they imagine the water being turned hot. Seeing as it’ll only be a window and it’ll be cold for god knows how much longer.

    Wait, I live in Lo-Rise and didn’t receive that e-mail. Did she just send it to Hi-Rise residents? Please dont tell me she sent it to Wesleying instead of the students affected. NO ONE in the administration should use Wesleying as a student liaison (not because you guys are incompetent – you certainly aren’t). Or even if she didn’t send it to Wesleying, it’s still really silly that it’s become our only source of knowledge in this situation besides calling them up directly. I wouldn’t have known anything if I hadnt called them and if I hadnt read Wesleying. i just wouldve been confused, cold, and grimey.
