Did you hear about the ridiculous storm we had in NYC yesterday? It’s still unclear whether it was technically a tornado or just a fierce storm but the damage is horrifying. Large trees were uprooted and many streets are still completely blocked in my parents neighborhood (where we’re staying). I drove by crushed cars and houses with wrecked walls and windows.

Lon and I were in the car yesterday on Queens Boulevard when the storm hit and the rain poured on the windshield in a blinding layer and we had to stop-and-go on this major roadway. It really only lasted a few minutes but I was petrified by the sounds of I-don’t-know-what hitting the car and the fear of hitting large objects that had blown into the road. I didn’t know until later on how lucky we were. All we had to really endure was driving to my parent’s house at a snail’s crawl and not getting to watch TV since the storm killed their satellite.
