The school where hubby works had a new boiler installed and the entire job has been a true clusterf&*k. Yesterday hubby noticed a huge build-up of ice on the stack. He requested that the shop send in a cherry-picker to knock the ice off. Not only is there a huge danger posed to the students, but really, it's a chimney there shouldn't be icicles hanging from it.

The board's liason/project manager replied, asking if a custodian couldn't just climb up and knock the ice away, to which my husband sent the following picture:




Please pay very close attention to the 8' ladder. The ice appears to be slightly out of reach. There is a 10' ladder on site, but he's not sure it will be much more help.
Who does she think she is?

Well even if there was a 60' ladder knocking around I wouldn't fancy climbing up it with a huge ice spear dangling above my head..!

The icicle of Damocles keeps popping into my head (figuratively.)

So that is where the school funds are going...to shoddy work. That doesn't look like it should be there. Won't chimney's melt the snow if they are working properly? Hmmmm-that should be your first clue that there is something wrong with the work. I am glad your husband sent a picture and gave them that reply. Can you imagine-these are the people making the decisions! LoL! What a joke.

I was shocked when he told me the cost so far - and that's just for one school, and for someone who is paying attention to the install. I can't imagine what the other buildings look like.

Not even from the roof wielding a broom from the backside of the chimney!


Icicle of DOOM!

Isn't that nuts? And they think that putting pylons around the area with warning signs is enough.
