    Anyone else stuck at home?

    My company has told me to work from home for the next two weeks - the schools are closed for at least two weeks. This has been day one and we're already going stir crazy. I'm sure that I've got it better than many - I'm not sick, just bored.

    How are you guys holding up?

    Grab a book buddy . I'm fortunate that I have lots of homework to do, garage house spring cleaning. But books are always a savior.

    Re: Anyone else stuck at home?

    Not yet but it's coming this week. They have us reviewing telework agreements,..

    Colleges out 2weeks then online courses remainder of semester. K-12 out 3weeks then planning online the remainder of the year.

    I can't see K-6 benefiting any from online.

    My question is... Bandwidth for all classes and business online.

    Things may get a little strange when cabin fever sits in . espicially spring time. Thoughts of getting scuba equipment so ya can go shop at wall mart safely.. Hang in there.

    My 1st grader and 4th grader both brought home their school Chromebooks. They are supposed to have "virtual learning" all this week. We'll see how that goes - who knows, it may work out ok.

    Re: Anyone else stuck at home?

    I was already working from home two days a week just because I could but may go ahead and start full time after today. The only reason I came into the office today was because I was supposed to meet a guy to come do some cabling. Well, that got canceled until further notice so may head home at lunch. Daughter is a senior in HS and will start online classes Wednesday. Not sure if she'll be back at all which sucks for her to miss all those senior activities but you it's probably for the best.

    That is a bummer. I guess it's better today that back in our day though - you can still video chat, but it sure isn't the same as actually being in school.

    Well we were sent home today to start teleworking from home tomorrow.
    Today no face to face meetings.
    No telling how long this will last.

    Re: Anyone else stuck at home?

    I went to the grocery store a few minutes ago (8:30 pm). There was the normal amount of people, but man was it sparse. No Toilet paper, disinfectant, or bread. Alot of the other stuff was really picked over.

    Luckily there was plenty of beer.
