Shopsmith impacted by tornados

#260028 by algale » Tue May 28, 2019 7:44 pm

I know there are many long time members here who are not on FB and thus may have missed today's announcement that customer service was closed due to the severe weather over Memorial Day in Dayton. Here is the text that was on FB:

ATTN! Shopsmith will be closed today, Tuesday, May 28th! Last night a strong storm system, including several tornadoes, ripped through the Dayton area. The area around our office was especially hard-hit. Our building is without power & debris on the roadways is keeping everyone away. Please keep us in your thoughts as we connect with our employees & loved ones to make sure everyone is safe! Thank you for your understanding!

So that is why this web site was down most of the day.

Yes I have friends who worked in Emergency Management with me for years prior to my retirement last year who told me that at one estimate 500,000 customers were without power at one point that night.

I wrote a few folks by email early Tuesday morning, including Nick Engler but I have not heard back from him as yet.
