thunderboomers and gorgeous days
This was the scene walking home from the subway last night. I absolutely love summer thunderstorms. I guess everyone does. And this one was particularly courteous and waited to open up and pour until I was safely in the house.
It washed away all the mucky humid weather and left us with a crisp, clear, and so beautiful you can't stay inside day. Of course, I am inside, working in an air-conditioned office building (blech) but I am expressing a little bit of rebellion for it by blogging at work. (shhhhhhh! don't tell!!) One of my favorite things about living in New York is looking up at the tall buildings. Stark gray buildings, sleek glassy ones, creamy stone ones. I guess all this looking up makes me look like a touristy country bumpkin, but I don't care. I like looking up.
