IMG_2259I turned around this afternoon around 4:00pm and like 8 million other people in New York City noticed that the storm was finally rolling in.  IMG_2260
As the rain started, I tried to catch the lightning flashes on film, which: easier said than done.  IMG_2269
IMG_2272Pretty soon it was nothing but rain and shadows.  IMG_2273
Outside it looked like winter, but felt like a swamp.  IMG_2281

IMG_2289Everyone either had an umbrella or didn't have an umbrella.  IMG_2290
Times Square was a blur.  IMG_2291It felt like it hadn't rained in a long time, probably because it hadn't.  IMG_2294
The lights saturated the streets.  IMG_2296Times Square has a momentum that is completely illogical -- I couldn't even imagine what I was doing there -- but unstoppable, or at least immune to the weather.  IMG_2301
In Washington Heights, it didn't rain as hard as it did downtown, but the garden was still happy.  IMG_2302It's been a tough year for a few of our trees, and they needed a good soaking.  IMG_2303
Everyone was equally wet in the democracy of the weather.

J.P. Is that statue in your yard? I've seen it several places and find it so magical, but can never maintain an idea of where exactly it is.

Yes -- it's a Frank Lloyd Wright reproduction we have in our yard. You can buy them from the Frank Lloyd Wright foundation online.
