Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

If you're headed to the Downtown Y for your lunchtime workout, you might have to make other plans.

A pipe has burst and the place has lost hot water and some a/c, according to an e-mail sent out to members:

A pipe burst this morning in the facility and hit one of the power panels, causing us to loose power and A/C in many parts of the building. There will be no hot water available. We are working on the problem and hope to have everything restored as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Welcome Center at 713.758.9226.

No a/c? No hot water for showers?

Your workmates might appreciate it if you change plans.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
