a short little winter

There's only us 3 at work today, and I went out into the hall to call my grandmother (who's recovering from emergency pacemaker implantation) and I noticed that our -80 is at -02 degrees. The little LED was flashing but the alarm wasn't making noise. I freaked out and we all spent an hour stuffing mostly-liquified samples into our other freezers (all -20s unfortunately) and throwing out the rest. It's a damn mess and god knows how much it will cost to replace the tissues, cells, pellets, kits, etc., not to mention the freezer itself. I would like to know why the hell no alarm went off, or if someone walked by and turned it off.

On the upside, my boss isn't here and so I rode my bike for some lebanese down the street for lunch (which, ostensibly, I could do any day for lunch), and I'll leave at 4 to ride 50 miles up to Pasadena on my messed up tire to get it replaced.
