Images from Green Bay

No, they aren't images of the Packers or cheese. I thought I'd share some of the images of the carnage that was the lab in Green Bay last Friday because as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. I think the only word that really describes the carnage early Friday morning is "horror". There's just something very wrong about wading through 2.5" of water to get to your equipment. Kudos to our Cisco Catalyst 6500, which was still running and routing traffic despite the conditions.

Our valiant NetBotz rests upon the remains of a Cisco storage switch. Hot water and ceiling tiles do not mix well, as you can see by the nastiness on the switch.

The underbelly of a Dell 48-port managed switch, which happened to be living in the rack just under the NetBotz. This rack was one of the ones that took most of the water.
