Big storm on the way, lots of snow, cold, and ice. Hunker down and avoid unnecessary travel. Sure, not an option for everyone, but for some it’s a good opportunity to lay low, read a good book, binge on Netflix or …….work. When the opportunity comes along to rest and unwind, many don’t.
Stay home with a cold? Sure, get your laptop out and work. Snow storm, apocalypse, end of the world…..still a good time to get a little work done. We love to work, and we work to live. Sad, but true.
Tonight despite the storm, you’re going to want power and Internet connections to work. Most likely the people who keep the lights on, and communications working may be out responding to trouble calls in this mess. It’s a cold night to be working outside, and traveling to get to a job won’t be too easy. These people often have to work in these conditions . Of course those who respond to emergencies, protect the public and keep the roads plowed will be out too.
All this so others can stay indoors and ride out the storm. Some may even have to rescue those who wonder out into the snow.
Sitting home working on a laptop drinking a hot cup of tea probably sounds great now.
It’s all in how you look at things. We all do what we have to do, so why do what we really don’t need to do? Close the lid, dim the lights, and relax. Save your strength. You’ll need it tomorrow when you’re shoveling your way out of your cozy snow covered abode.
That is unless you decide to sleep in. Everyone needs a break now and then.
Charge your phone – while you can, If the lights go out you’ll want a fully charged phone, especially since many of us use our phones as very expensive flashlights. If home is where you do most of your work from, then I guess you might feel like it’s no big deal. Snowed in at work isn’t something I would enjoy unless that meant I was already home. I probably would just keep on working. I guess that’s what I’m doing right now, Oh no!
I wonder what’s on Netflix, …….nah, too much work to do.
