Has the Winter Storm Forced You to Work From Home?

Some people telework on a regular basis.  Others’ homes are their office.  Some jobs simply can’t be done at home, and then there are those companies with no-telework policies.

Whatever your situation, if you live in Atlanta, you most likely stayed home at least one day this week.  How did you choose to use this time?

Did you sit at your desk from 9 to 5, stopping for an hour to eat lunch?  Or did you get the work you normally take 8 hours to do done in 4, and go sledding?

Did you stay in your pajamas, curl up with the dog, spend time with your children, or cook lunch instead of eating a sandwich?

If you’re back at work, were you happy to see your coworkers and shed some cabin fever, or did you lament that the ice did not stick around for one more day?

These days, the Internet makes it easy for many people to work remotely.  Do you see this capacity as a good or a bad thing?  What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of working from your home?
