Good parking spots at Microsoft today

According to Doug Mahugh’s blog:

It snowed a little this morning, and the Microsoft campus is deserted. People are cancelling meetings and setting their OOF (out-of-office) messages, and I got the best spot in the parking garage.

Well, truth be told, it’s often possible to get a good spot at 5:00AM, which is when I arrived today for a webcast I delivered at 6:30. We do them early in the morning Redmond time so that people around the world can participate: it’s the end of the work day in Europe, morning in North America, mid-day in Brazil, evening in India, and late evening in Japan. Well, Hawaii and New Zealand get screwed, but it’s always 3:00AM somewhere, right?
