W. 40th Street, June 2007
I did try to go to the gym yesterday morning, but when I got there they said the weight room had been flooded by the heavy rains and was closed. That should have been my first indication that this was no ordinary storm.
As I walked to work a little later, I saw hordes of people waiting at bus stops. I overheard one man say into a cell phone that the buses weren't running - but I think he was asking a question, because it turns out that the subways were out, not the buses. Apparently all the rainwater flooded the subway lines. Mass chaos! Pedestrian overload!
My boss, who lives in Brooklyn, couldn't even get to work. And there was also a tornado, which caused some damage in another Brooklyn neighborhood. An eventful Wednesday!
I'm going to try to tackle the gym again this morning. Hope they got out the Wet-Vac.
