A note from the husband about working from home...

We live in Arizona. As some of you know, President Obama will be speaking at ASU's graduation this evening. Beginning last night at midnight, restrictions were put into place on travel to certain areas of the city.


And, because my office is in a high rise building, we had somestrange visitors securing our building over the past couple of days. It seems like the place is crawling with secret service.

It just so happens that my office is relatively close to SunDevil Stadium, where the President will be speaking.

(It is worth clicking on this image to see it larger)

Because of the travel restrictions, traffic is a mess. And with theDiamondback's game this evening, it will only get worse...


So, I'm working from home today. (My apologies to my co-workers who already received this in email.)

Congratulations to all those who are graduating, especially my very own brother (in-law).

whoa. I heard this that he would be there today and I can only imagine the chaos so you get all the permission you need to stay out of that zone and off of that freeway...although I can't imagine why you wouldn't want to just sit in traffic to be able to sit in your car longer to enjoy it:) Hope all is well!

what? you're working at home? where are you? i haven't seen you all day!

so glad you don't have to fight the traffic. not to mention the secret service kitties.

did they (the secret service) not know that you have some mad ninja skills? they should have hired you for this event. i'm pretty sure you would have kept obama safe.

The only thing I've heard about this is that ASU's not going to give him an honorary degree.

Working from home has some big pros and big cons.
