    'Should stop' sounds better for this sentence. 

    Depending on the context of how you're using this sentence, you could also get your point across a lot sooner and with less words to be more efficient with your story telling. 'Wordy' sentences tend to come across as boring. For example: 

    "With the storm approaching, we should stop working and go inside."

    "With the approaching storm, we should halt work for now and head inside."

    Or something along these lines. By saying they should go inside, you're already implying that they're outside, so there's no need to use both words. This is just my opinion though. You're free to write however you want and develop your own style. Good luck!

    "As the storm is approaching, we should work inside for now." seems to be correct.

    I'd call it a tossup since either could be correct.

    Since the storm is approaching, we should go inside.

    Well, if you are literally outside when a storm approaches the safest course is to seek refuge inside. You posted this in politics at first. Is there some double meaning to this?
