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.

I read about the storm in the paper. Sounds like it was very intense! No wonder your poor little cat hung out with you through the storm!

Good luck at the gym today!! Hope things get back to normal.

Quite a storm. When in NYC we used the subway exclusively. I cannot imagine what chaos ensues when it is unusable.

It's hard to get into your routine with curve balls like this.

Things sound terrible back there - my mom (in Philly) said it was like 100 degrees and humid and HAILED - and then this big NY storm. Of course, there's NOTHING wrong with our weather patterns, is there?
