Is it cooler up there?
90 degrees in the shade today and very, very humid....wonder if was any cooler or if there was a breeze up on the open 86th floor observation deck of the Empire State. Of course, would not want to be there when next batch of thunderstorms comes through ( weather reporting is more and more chancy these days about whether they will hit Manhattan or not--you never know. One direct hit by a series of violent storms in one night knocked out the telephone landline service to my building and it took Verizon six days to fix it. They did a rather shabby job, too-- wires from building are now up in the air in back courtyard with a part that was defective holding some part of the wires now replaced with some plastic garbage bags wrapped around them...when I saw the repair crew doing this, I asked the woman in charge how long this would hold up and would it make it through the next round of thunderstorms...she just laughed nervously.
