rain, surf and new york nice
the storm took us by surprise.
thunder was so loud and the lightning so bright, it scared the puppy pants off owen.
when it finally stopped i ran outside to see what i could see. these photos are true, but no sooner had i taken them, the clouds covered the sun and i ran for cover too.
news update on my nyc girl:
her bike came!! she said she push~pulled the heavy box (a weighty vintage derailer) for only a moment by herself, and was soon joined by one friendly helpful new yorker after the other. there was a business man, a young mother, a couple, a very old woman...kindly assisting her all the way to the nearest bike shop (where it was dropped off for reassembly). this is only one of the reasons why she ♥'s ny.
and the care box arrived too. she has her pocket and now she's safe and all's well...
with five kids though, it's always something. two of my son's left for central america yesterday, nicaragua. for surf. i'm hoping very much that the waves aren't too big and mostly i hope the people are like new yorkers, nice.
