If you are at home a power outage can be quite nice. You lighten up a few candles and cuddle up in a blanket. At work however, one becomes quickly redundant.
This morning my better half had asked me to confirm safe arrival at the office because he was worried about the weather and driving conditions. I sent him a picture to prove that everything went swimmingly.
Then around 2PM we experienced a power outage in the area. It was on and off again, and we had lost our internet connection, too, so the boss gave us the rest of the day off... well not really, of course he expected that we would continue to work from home. So, here i am sitting in my 'home office', which is actually the dining table... working.
Some good news: It seems the Mayan calendar wasn't interpreted correctly. Doomsday has been postponed for another century, and Apocalypse is now scheduled for 2116. All is well.
I wish everybody a very Merry Chrismukkah and a Happy New Year!
Find me on the Road again... in 2013.
