However, while we sit around bitching about the heat, brave crews from as far away as Ohio have been scrambling to fix the plant; over a hundred city workers and out-of-state contractors had to spend all day repairing a structure that was basically leaking shit in 100-degree weather with little shade. What did you do yesterday?
