Not since Sandy have Manhattan lawyers residing in Connecticut faced such a brutal commute. About 30,000 commuters are nosing around for alternates to Metro North. Last Friday during rush hour an eastbound and a westbound commuter train collided. More than 60 were injured, some critically.
Sure there is telecommuting. But some lawyers have to be in the office or in court in person. I faced that extreme pressure during Nemo. I had to show up in Old Saybrook, CT. That meant digging out my car from three feet of snow. Kids are such sophisticated entrepreneurs these days that they only hustle in upscale communities for snow removal. Mine wasn't one of them. This blog wishes all the distressed commuters inner serenity.
