Makeshift Home Offices During Hurricane Sandy [Slideshow]

Hurricane Sandy working from home

From New York to D.C. to Boston, transit systems were shut down, tunnels and bridges closed and offices shuttered, all due to Hurricane Sandy. So many employees were working from makeshift home offices -- at least as long as they have power.

Here's where some of us on the AOL editorial team will be working through Hurricane Sandy. As you can see, some of us are improvising, camped out in friends' homes or working in small apartments. The coffee is hot, everything with a battery is charged, and we're here until the electricity goes out in our respective homes.

Where are you working during Sandy? Stay safe, everyone.

Hmm but what about when your home office location loses power and the state of emergency says you can't be on the road or you will be arrested and fined?

As terrible as this storm is, perhaps showing how well operations can continue from a home-based office, might prove to the US business world that we don't need to stick our employees in a cubicle along the I-95 to be productive!! Companies should look at the workforce across this country that would welcome a chance to prove their capabilities, if they can stay where they are now. Any job that can be done in a cubicle can be done from a home office.
