Nice to hear you are safe and sound Matt
Nice vid from yesterday BTW! I just hope they get the airports sorted out for your return.
Glad to hear all is well (or at least as good as can be expected) Matt.
Hopefully the airport, and transport to it, will be back in business by your return date!
I'm into my second week now. By boss flew back last weekend as he needs to get to Seoul. And everyone has been really nice, making sure I'm ok etc etc - I've loads of friends here and just before the storm hit I was helping someone pack up the garden chairs etc and making sure windows were boarded. The Americans really know how to deal with this and are really well prepared - the UK could learn a thing or two.
It's a huge change from your school days and the height of excitement being gerbil cam or a great tit raiding a nest box!
I can see you are OK Matt,
Bit wet and windy here, well I suppose the ground is pretty much dry, as the wind is coming in sideways right about now. And the river level is up, but no wet feet just yet.
Glad to see you're out the other side of it Mattx.
We were out in it yesterday and it was pretty rough, blowing the car all ways. Had to get the eldest daughter to hospital as she broke her arm..... Fine time to do it.
Not a big hurricane in the scheme of things; however, the big problem could have been when it merged with one of the two cold systems coming in from Canada. I've not followed the news in detail, so I've missed exactly where and when they met.
Been a bit hetic over the last few days in the office. Yesterday after the storm we had no internet and only one of the MPLS circuits up. So I managed to get people working by re-routing some of the traffic so it used the MPLS - good old HOSTS files.....
Last night the final circuit [ which was the backup MPLS ] went so no comms at all in the office. I have managed to setup a 2 phone hotspots and have the office working off those. Outlook Web Access for E-mail and a slow but stable connection to the company's main web service site. So people are working but only just. Could be a few days before circuits are back up. I'm due to fly back Saturday but have a feeling I may be here a bit longer.
