Sounds like Long Beach when we get an inch of rain!!!

We don't worry about getting our feet wet because we don't leave our houses!

Even after all that I usually come home with soggy shoes.







When it gets up to four hours, you're supposed to consult a doctor.
LOL Have seen the puddle situation after some rain when we were in the city but I guess I ain't seen nothing. Where do you work, if you don't mind my asking?

. . . On second thought, I've seen how you Californians drive and crash when there is an inch of rain on the ground. Yes, it might be better to stay in.

I work down in Chelsea, so no having to deal with a bad subway commute. During the last storm some of the subway service was down in the far reaches of Brooklyn & Queens for days. The Long Island Railroad was also down for a while.

I'm surprised about that. You'd think by now, the railroads would have figured out how to rig up some snowplow thingie onto the front of the train to push the snow off the tracks.

Yes, we like to grow them nice & sturdy here in the Big Apple. Survival of the fittest & all. It's good training for later if they get mugged walking along those same streets.

I can't figure out where the updates start, cuz I don't remember where we left off, so I end up having to read the freakin' post all the way through!

Should be sunny, not warm, only in the 60s. We got our 12 inches of rain for the year last month.
