We didn’t start the fire…

February 24, 2009

Nobody was hurt nor was any building damaged by the fire, though several of the recycling bins by the base of the fire were seriously melted.  Luckily we can still use the bins for recycling and it will have no effect upon our recent sustainability initiative, Sustainability comes to Main Street. Once everyone was assured the fire was out and would not spread, we all returned to our office, which now smelled like campfire (like the kind you cook smores over and not 37 signals’ great chat tool…)
