Due to the approach of Hurricane Sandy, Paul and I are working from home today. He can access his work desktop from our home system and (since I was thinking ahead when I heard reports of the upcoming storm) I brought my work laptop home with me on Friday.
We didn’t have a choice whether to work from home or not (although I certainly didn’t mind; I would love to work from home every day); both of our workplaces are closed and the DC Metro has shut down.
I don’t think we have to worry about losing power, as our building is served by underground power lines. A friend of mine has lived in this building for 7-8 years and she said they’ve never lost power during the time she’s lived here. However, we do have a flashlight handy, and I filled up three large pots of water (in addition to what we already have in the fridge), just in case.
I took advantage of being at home to fill the CrockPot with ingredients for Indian Butter Chicken. I’m already looking forward to dinner!
