On Abovethelaw.com, lawyer-journalist Joe Patrice depicts what must have been deep disappointment among lawyers along the Northeast Corridor.
Stella stalled. It was going to be business as usual for lawyers. They didn't even have a shot at staying home and keeping the brass and clients happy by telecommuting.
Therefore, he has probably been unaware that joy filled the land among those recovering problem drinkers who stayed on the wagon. They showed up at the office bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. In this post, I had warned them that The Storm could indeed fizzle out.
That message was also targeted at non-problem drinkers who might figure they could linger at the bar until the wee hours of the morning since the next day would be a work-from-home one.
Part of gallows humor in recovery programs are the stories about the teachers who bet on a snow day. Drunks plan, the gods laugh. Unfortunately, some couldn't make it in on that non-snow day.
That broke the inner rules problem drinkers develop about what lines can't be crossed. The good news is that when they are crossed often enough there is the realization that they are on the way down - professionally, physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. They enter some kind of addiction treatment. AA is not the only game in town.
Congratulations to each and every lawyer who didn't leverage the prediction of a monster blizzard as a time-out from finding relief from the world in a bottle.
