As jcbronson's co-worker, I too wish that I had seen the original call for stories.
Chirstmas time, 2008, my Father-in-law passed away on December 23rd. On Christmas day, we were preparing for a rather somber Christmas dinner. That's when I get the call that we had the power failure at work. To say the least, my wife was extremely not happy that I had to leave, just before my siblings arrived. Thanks to my kind co-worker, JCB, he let me go back to my family while he worked most of the day to get our systems back online.
I can't say enough about my co-workers and their dedication when an emergency occurs or a major project is due, like moving the entire company 50 miles away.
Merry Christmas, to all.
