Every time I come to Seattle I always find the weather very similar to the UK.  It's rainy and gray a lot....

There is a running joke that it only rains in Seattle twice a week - Monday to Thursday and Friday to Sunday!

Seattle also seems to have the same problem coping with even the tiniest sprinkling of snow (just like we do in the UK)

 

 

There was a snow dump on Sunday and now a lot of roads are covered in black ice and snow.  Most people can't make it into the office due to the road conditions..

So why am I telling you all this... well I got an interesting email from our Exchange 2007 team who had seen a huge spike in remote email usage through this period as people worked from home.  At one point they had 175,000 incoming connections. 

Exchange 2007 was just running like a dream...
