There's a new suck-o-meter for New York City's weather and traffic : the Uber Surge Pricing index.   Yesterday sucked so hard that surge pricing was up to 3.0 x.  That's as high as I've seen since New Year's Eve.   Something to monitor...  The dynamics of supply and demand for taxi/car rides tell us how miserable it is out there.

last night was a reminder that big fluffy dogs don't take well to buckets of rain right before bed.

Agreed. Only use my debit card to take cash out.

debit visa is an amazing invention, was really surprised by it when i moved from canada. especially useful as its pretty tricky for foreigners to get credit cards from US banks (and when you do, they give you a $500 credit limit).

sidebar, is bowery / rivington a decent place to live?

F train derailed. I am sure the evening commute will be an absolute disaster.

Of course it's the F train. It's always the goddamn F train.

Bent a rim on a pothole on the GWB during the rain storm a few days ago. Fortunately I bought the rim insurance.

I see these stickers all over the city of this little hispanic guy. Who the hell is he?

On second thought he might be Philippine, or Indian...
