So our office party was Thursday night..great timing too because it happened during one of the worst storms to ever hit the Pacific Northwest.  My colleague Ian Peacock and our wives drove back to Seattle from the Eastside just about at the beginning of the height of the storm at around midnight.  For those of you familiar with Seattle, yes, that was driving across the I-90 floating bridge in my SUV, which *did* get tossed & thrown about in the 60 mph wind gusts.  Good times and not scary at all. ;-)

Fortunately, all is well though it looked today like almost all of Bellevue was still out of power and the Microsoft Campus is still dark for the most part.  It was one heck of a storm, and still is for a lot of people in the Pacific Northwest.
