one (crazy stormy) commute home

The National Weather Service is still determining whether the storm I (incidentally) biked home through this evening was a tornado that ripped through Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. Whatever it was - it was HUGE - thunder, lightning, down pour leaving scaffolding torn apart and unfortunately lots of uprooted trees (came across a few on Vanderbilt Ave. alone). A helpful read if ever unexpectedly caught outside in a lightning storm.

I shot the photos above as the rain died down around 6:30pm -- the NYTimes has some incredible photos sent in by readers.
