See those crazy clouds hovering behind me…yep, a thunderstorm was underway! My friends and I were huddled on the roof, all dressed like some crazy British rock girl band, and we felt like we were high in in the dark deep clouds. We panicked as it started raining just above the neighbor’s roof, until seconds later, we were soaked once it made it’s way to us. I don’t think there’s been a girl running in wellies so fast! And it’s actually quite fun to see the storm making it’s way across the city. Fun, but quite dangerous. We luckily found shelter in the stairwell…with rain drops hard as rocks knocking on the ceiling. We were literally squeuling inside like little girls. The windows in the apartment were open, wetting the lit candles on the ledge. Shutting everything from the outdoor world, the only thing we could do was watch the Flood Warnings from our phones, and turn on the TV. We were antsy and with no patience to wait it out, we were outside walking in the rain 10 minutes later. There’s always that excitement with the NYC rain. You never really know what you’re going to get. Thank goodness for these navy blue wellies
..I love them on hot rainy afternoons with nothing but some short, shorts, and a band tee. I brought the sunflowers out this day, you know, only to give the dreary East Village some life. Someone’s gotta do it.
