Telecommuting during Isabel

The Post has this article on people who got the job done from home during the hurricane. Remote connection is a good thing, of course, and I do something like it myself, connecting from the house to the office (via GoToMyPC), but the important variable that many in Virginia lacked from Thursday night until maybe now and later is electricity. (Among the powerless - my in-laws, who were supposed to fly from Richmond en route to Italy today but their flight was cancelled and so they bagged the whole trip and are now maybe planning a big barbecue, since they can't keep anything very well refrigerated.)
