Absolutely on the Vandalism.
I was thinking inside under the stairs and an exhaust out a window
Not sure on power up there tonight, altho some houses are still dark.

>> I'm surprised there is no Generator at the site
I think any kind of generator outside that particular water tank
structure would be subject to vandalism. It's known by the Quincy
Police as a trouble spot. The building gets tagged regularly. On
site visits, finding the area around the building littered with
beer cans and broken bottles is common.
As for putting a generator inside: I've been inside that
building and there's no room for anything in there; I'm surprised
they managed to get the digital transmitter to fit!
