Looking at pictures of downed trees and damaged buildings, it’s hard to believe that this is New York City, not the midwest. The storm wasn’t even on the forecast, but at about 5:20 pm it was pouring rain and thundering and lightning. The sky was greenish grey and I think it even hailed. Fortunately I didn’t need to leave the building until after everything was over. But back home the power was knocked out and tonight my family is in the dark.
In the quietness of the evening, there’s a lot of work to be done.
