The power is off in my building today, between 9am and 3pm. Last time this happened, I tried to stay in thinking they'd never shut it off for that long of a duration. Well I was right, but what I neglected to realize was that it would be going up and down periodically, which trust me can get annoying. So this time, I decided to just work remotely wherever I could find Internet.
Avoiding annoyance. That's why.
