Union Bay and Garage Overhead Door Safety

My neighbour was struggling with trying to open her overhead garage door, I asked if I could help. She explained with frustration, the stupid door would not open with the garage door opener and the light kept blinking on and off, so she was trying to open it manually. I’m late for an appointment and now the snow Grrrrrrr.

I remember reading, “To avoid crushing injuries, the door will stop abruptly and reverse. Unfortunately, misalignment of the garage door sensors will cause the door to behave erratically. If your door shows any of these problems, consider examining your garage door sensor for obstruction or misalignment:

  • Sudden stops and reversals
  • Flashing lights, either on the overhead part or on the sensors themselves
  • Opens but does not close”

These garage door sensors work when electricity is transformed into an infrared beam of light. This light is emitted from one side of your garage door from a sending unit that sits 4 inches up from the floor. It sends the beam of light to a receiving unit on the other side of the garage door.

I explained that I have used the Garage Door Doctor and had Daryll the technician come and tune up our two Garage doors.

Daryll from Garage Door Doctor came today and replaced the garage door safety sensors and then checked the safe operation of the door. Now where did I put those snow shovels?

Union Bay Improvement District Cancel’s First Meeting of the Year.

The January 16th Public Board Meeting has been cancelled. The reason for this cancellation is that there are no agenda items beyond the acceptance of past minutes and the adoption of reports from the UBID staff. As such, we have decided to cancel the meeting and save the costs associated. An important part of these meetings is the ability for landowners to ask questions of the Board of Trustees. If there are any questions you would have otherwise asked at this meeting, please direct them to Ian Munro, Interim Chair at imunro@union-bay.ca.

Board & Minutes

Hmmmmm,  grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Union Bay in a Deep Freeze Brrrr

My neighbour was removing his frozen hose from the outside hose bib today. I went over and asked if he had turned the water off inside the house. He looked at me with that perplexed look…
