No matter what you do, it's obviously a less than ideal situation, so adjust your expectations accordingly.

It's probably a good time for a strength-emphasis training cycle - squatting, pulling, pressing, etc. and less work on the classic lifts, or as you said, adjust the weights down and do a little more tech work. I don't think that would be disastrous at all, and in fact, that reduction in overall work/intensity would probably be beneficial in these circumstances.

A couple possible choices -
Olympic Weightlifting: A Complete Guide for Athletes & Coaches - 3rd Edition Now Out

"Without a doubt the best book on the market about Olympic-style weightlifting." - Mike Burgener, USAW Senior International Coach

American Weightlifting: The Documentary
