Our head office was hit by a blackout earlier today. Several blocks were blacked out. One minute the office was a hive of activity and the next it was silent. Quite eerie actually, a reminder of how much we rely on power.
Thankfully, we kept support open through our after hours numbers and our our Brisbane and Sydney offices.
Beyond the challenge of twenty five people in a dark office on the third floor, we had a courier here to collect shipments other challenges which held up progress for the day. Things like almost completed travel bookings and the like were lost.
While we were dealing with this, three of the centres in which we have retail businesses were hit with blackouts. It seems Melbourne’s crazy (windy) weather today is having something to do with this.
