It's a bit windy out there
The New York area is currently being hit with some majorly heavy winds. My house sounded like it was rattling apart this morning; the NYC streets are full of people holding inside-out umbrellas; my building is creaking so much that I feel like I'm in the hold of a 15th century sailing ship; and my personal favorite:
Metro North says a downed tree at 170th Street in the Bronx is blocking all traffic on Harlem and New Haven Lines into and out of Grand Central Station.I ride the New Haven Line every day. So how did I get here? I had to come in 2.5 hours early today. If I hadn't, I'd probably be stuck at home right now.
Oh, and just so you know: it's nothing like the picture I used above—I just couldn't figure out another way to represent wind.
