Play Hooky Today! Subways A Disaster

Why reinvent the wheel? Ben at Second Avenue Sagas has the gory details on the debacle in the subway system due to last night's storm.

I was up and out early for an 8:00 dentist appointment way the hell over in Jersey City. Needless to say, that did not happen, but I did make it to work by 9:00 . . . a mere 1:45 commute.

Everything is totally screwed up this morning. Stay home if you can.

But what a storm last night! That was the second time in five days we've been woken out of a sound sleep by a massive thunder and lightning display. The lightning was impressive enough from indoors. But my brother was paving La Guardia this weekend, and they had a spectacular view of the action in the last storm. He said it was the first time he's seen ball lightning. Picture a giant orb of flickering power, and then lighting bolts shooting out of it in several directions at once.
