Photos for Friday


It was a very stormy morning today here in New York.  We had the remnants of Hurricane Nicole dump buckets of water on us.  Rain, wind, and flooding as you can see.  The thing I don't get is that drivers think their cars are boats, or tanks, or something.  Why would they fly into a deep puddle of water like that and keep going at top speed, making a wake not unlike a speed boat in the ocean?  Are they idiots, or what?  Or are they just brave?  Aren't they afraid to get stranded in such deep water?  Even a couple of inches of water can cause a car to stall out and float.  I've seen it happen.

I don't get it.

  1. Always enjoy seeing your Long Island photos! I never understood the driving either (on ice also)- I guess ( today) I don't miss Long Island and the flooding rain.

  2. Yes, the rain. And today it's the cold. Suddenly it's freezing here.
    I'm looking forward to one more really nice day and then that will be it until next spring...sigh,,
