This Isn’t Temping: All Hands On Deck

I have been asked to work remotely today because so many people are without power in the suburbs. Scary! I know we have one Long Island-er and two people in Westchester, as well as a bunch of folks in Brooklyn who can’t get into Manhattan because of the train shutdown. The people we work with are also dealing with some pretty serious issues, including flooding and other damage.

So, here I am. Logged in via remote desktop to my work computer. But the question is, what do I have to do? The current answer is ‘not much.’ I get a feeling this is about peace of mind more than actual work tasks. When I used to work from home, it was always because I had a very intensive, single-focus project to bang out. I needed quiet and privacy, which were not abundant in my old office. In this instance, I am just available to do work-related tasks. Simply being present and connected is my value.

So here I am. I guess I’ll make a pot of tea and wait for some instructions. I have to say, I am relieved to be working and therefore collecting a paycheck.

I’m still feeling so lucky to have emerged relatively unscathed from this storm.
