Baby it's Cold Outside: How to Stay Warm and Dry During Your Commute

By Madison Carson on 12.19.14

Some mornings you walk outside and it's a beautiful day, other mornings not so much. For those foul weather wintry days, a little extra planning can help you arrive at the office in one business-ready piece. No matter what the weather is outside, here are a few key tips to keep you ahead of the game: 

Traffic and Metro problems can strike anytime with any weather; make sure you have an alternate route in case something gets jammed. If at all possible make sure your primary form of transportation isn’t your only form of transportation. Download a few apps to help plan various routes to the office or find a radio station with consistent weather and traffic updates to keep up while you’re driving.

Rain

A familiar friend to all of us in the DC area, rain can easily dampen your day. Keep an umbrella in your bag or desk drawer for unexpected showers and choose shoes that won’t get ruined when wet. If your commute requires a fair amount of walking, investing in some rain boots and a waterproof rain jacket aren’t bad ideas either. For our more self-assured commuters- a poncho is also an efficient way to keep the rain off, however I can’t promise style points will be granted.

The question is, in a world obsessed by mobile technology, how do you keep your devices safe and secure?

We’re not just talking viruses. Shoulder-to-shoulder working in coffee shops, walking to the station or leaving your laptop in the car can leave you open to the risk of theft. How do you protect against theft? And if your device is stolen, how do you keep sensitive data locked away?

We’ve pulled together 5 tips on how to lock down your laptop and mobile devices. It’s just as handy for business centre and coworking operators as it is for your clients, but it’s by no means exhaustive. What other tips would you add?
