Yesterday and today have been marked by record breaking rain in the New York Metro Area. With this sort of foul weather, tourists are advised to hunker down in sheltered areas, quaffing copious amounts of beer.
On the plus side, the weather is uncharacteristically cool for New York in August, even Pacific Northwesterners should be comfortable under our cool, lead-colored skies. That is, if they don't get swept away by our poopy, poopy rivers. Things could be worse, at least the rivers of poop aren't on fire.
At least the beer is clean.
