uh-oh, no electricity at the Aethelwold…

You know it’s going to be an interesting day when you get an email from the office manager and learn we won’t have electricity at work (sigh, life in a 1900 building)…  :-) because of the electrical panel at the back of the building about to fall off…. UPDATE: it’s all fixed and we have lights now!
