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.

Sigh.

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.

I have been getting emails all morning about people who are running late due to Metro North issues.
