The new terminal A lost power around 2pm. Due to power loss, we had to manually run bags from the ticket counter, down an elevator, out to the ramp. We had 4 ramp agents running bags down while the other 5 of us loaded flights. Most flights waited about 30min-1 hour to be downloaded because we had 4 planes on the ground with only 5 people on the ramp. Then we had to wait for the bags for each flight before we could send them out. And since it took us so long to get each plane out, as soon as one left another one came in. Also it was snowing and that made for a even more fun evening.
It wasn't fun, but we made it. No cancelled flights, although we have a ton of bags that never made it. Passengers were notified if they want to fly, they might be seperated from their baggage. Funny thing is around 930pm, power was restored, after all our departures had left. Sweet.
confusing use of time
