I much prefer weather like this to 80+humid.

I was at Chelsea Piers hitting at the range last night during the thunderstorms. The lightning out over NJ was great to watch and everything cooled down a lot after the big downpour around 9.

we had a lightning strike fairly close to us. windows open and all. it was a good storm.


was curious if the dog would be scared. she's not.

Definitely a good storm yesterday. Didn't bother me at all, cooled things off, and we needed the rain.

Am hoping it will wash away some of the ridiculous levels of accumulated pollen and particulate matter that have been floating around the last few weeks.

Also, my car really needed to be washed, so now maybe less so?

if I had a car and it needed to be washed, my building could actually accommodate that request.

not that I have a car, but I like to take the hose out and shoot water at the dog. She hates baths, but loves the hose.




and +100 on the pollen wash. The new girl next to me at work fucking sneezes constantly (but she tries to not sneeze, so she just ends up sounding like she's dry heaving for 2 straight minutes. Drives me nuts.)

The humidity/heat is gone now - kind of nice and might last the whole week.

the guys at our garage are "officially" prohibited from washing cars, although a couple of them on the night shift will do it - they make such a big thing about not letting the boss know that I'm always afraid to bring it up....

ironically, i finally tried a new carwash place on queens blvd yesterday at lunch - early evening saw us fording some low areas on the midtown tunnel approach and the grand central filled w/ over a foot of chocolatey water ffffuuuu.gif

What's a nice hotel to stay at for my parents visiting NYC, preferably around Midtown?

Budget?
post #10109 of 11477

Looking at the market prices for the season, somewhere around 3-500$ a night.
