The governor has requested that private businesses close today (it's for the children). I went in to the office early and brought some stuff home with me. The roads were pretty quiet at 6 am.

They closed our main office, but my boss, my cow-orker and I are probably going to be spending the day calling in service tickets to the various telcos that serve our 130 field offices. From home. [sad]

I was about to leave the house when I got the email that we're closed. I had just finished tossing some stuff in my truck that I don't usually carry...my chainsaw, a gas can with fuel/oil mix, and some tow straps. I figured that would have covered me in case there were any downed trees preventing my return trip home.

Called in at 5 for a status report, was told there was to be a conference call at 630 with Northeast terminal managers. I should have been on the road 30 minutes ago. I'm still in sweats and a hoodie, and plan on staying that way.

Drove the wife to work, now back home waiting for her to call for return trip.

My company cancelled my office hours today, I'll do my road work if the shops are open, I am on vacation after today, heading to Florida Weds., I can finish any appraisals I have not finished from down there

I'm in. Mandatory double. We're having a breakfast meeting with French Toast, while we go over how to confiscate AK-47s during the State of Emergency.

I wanted to work, my supervisor wanted us to work, my boss wanted us to work, but since my company is contracted with MassDot they aren't letting us work.

If UPS is still dropping off and picking up while we have power, I'm working. Not windy or rainy here... Yet?

Everyone in office is crying about how we should go home. Then go the F home and leave me alone! People suck.
