Standup in the Dark

The lights went out to work today after a winter storm rolled through Sacramento. In an agile spirit we still held one of our standups after moving near one of the windows.

Scrum Master: “OK, anyone have anything to report?”

Team Member #1: “I was really productive right up until the lights went out.”

Team Member #2: “I have an impediment, no machine, and no light.”

Team Member #3: “Turns out I won’t need a migration to the QA server today.”

Scrum Master: “Oh, and the review is at 12:30 next week, and I’m scheduling the retrospective today if we get power.”

Team Member #4: “And you can add lunchtime sprint reviews to that list of things to look into right now.”
