    Just a tad too humid to call it a "top 10 day of the year", but it's a nice departure from the weekend. I'm looking forward to playing softball this evening.

    I woke up this morning in a sweat. Figured it was because I was running a slight fever, but when I went outside it was indeed very very humid. The L train was full of sweaty people, including me. In fairness it does look pretty outside though.

    At noon yesterday it was 81 with 62 humidity. It hit the 50s the previous evening after raining most of Saturday and all day Sunday.

    And the M wasn't running so our house-hunting trek to Middle Village was interrupted when we were unceremoniously dumped by the J at Myrtle & Broadway. There were shuttle buses running to substitute for the M but a couple of blocks of street-level viewing of Bushwick/Ridgewood was enough for the missus to demand a return to the hotel.

    Pretty amazing how quickly things change from Park Slope to Gowanus. Wonder if the Slopers get toxins in their roof-grown hydroponic artisanal ramps.

    :fu: :lol:


    don't count out ridgewood. there's a lot of pockets of nice houses there (in the area between onderdonk and woodward, and starr and stanhope) - basically anywhere near the grover cleveland park area. its basically greenpoint before what greenpoint became in the last decade (which is ironic because the polish who used to live in greenpoint used to want to move to ridgewood but now they live in ridgewood and now want to move to midde village). its accessible by the L train (jefferson and dekalb stops) and plenty of buses. the area has a huge polish population (i believe that some churches in the area still hold mass in polish).

    My phone said 50-something when I posted that. It did warm up very quickly.


    Last night and this morning was oddly humid. It seemed to get better around noon, which I don't quite understand.

    Southern California does have nice weather.
