Good day to work from home

My company does VoIP, so when I'm on call (well, really, all the time) I get paged by Montgomery County when there's some major crisis because of our 911 service. So this morning, I got a bunch of alerts of flooding, then a water main break in Bethesda. All day, I have gotten pages of schools closing, low water pressure, hospitals switching to backup, water restrictions in various government offices, and roads being closed.

Our building, even though it's miles away in downtown Silver Spring, has now lost water pressure. The restaurants across the street from us have been shutting down one by one.

Sounds like a mess.
