Recently I had an element failure very near the end of the Christmas season. When I ordered new elements, I was told to expect them by a given date. I made some promises to folks whose bookings were impacted by the unexpected outage and the elements didn’t show. As of today (12/26) I am still without elements. I won’t get them, UPS says, until the 27th. Once bitten, I will wait and see if I get the elements on the 27th or not. Frustrating all the way around!
I will be going out of town the first of the month and will return the second week of January. I won’t be running the furnace up for a couple of days only to turn it off once I go out of town. It takes about two to three days to get the furnace up to temperature, and about the same to get it to room temperature. As a result, the furnace will be turned on again on the 11th and should be up by the 13th IF NOTHING GOES WRONG. People might wonder what could go wrong, and I explain the elements should have lasted about ten months, not just two, so that is an example of the unexpected things that can happen.
For now, the booking calendar is down. It will go back up once everything is running smoothly again. Expect that to happen somewhere around the 13th to 14th of January. Then those of you who were impacted by the recent gyrations at the studio, to get your sessions in again, should you wish…again, with my apologies.
The blog post right after this one serves as a really good primer for how to use the calendar. I hope everyone has had a great time visiting family and friends this holiday and I hope to see you at the studio soon!
Happy New Year!
