WhatTF is going on with our weather? NYC got hit with 5 micro tornadoes — upturning trees, moving cars, disrupting rail and highways — over the course of about 20 minutes.
The commute home was insane — the railroads were all essentially canceled, with multiple trees on the tracks — and the drive home was simply unimaginable.
I cannot describe what it was like to take one hour to go a single exit. Normally, it takes me 30-40 minutes to get home at 8:30 at nite. I just walked in at 1am. It took me over 4 and half hours to get driven home (courtesy of CNBC).
FIretrucks every where, ambulances, police — it was bedlam.
I’ve never had a ride like this — an on rare occasion, I drive into the city with ush hour. That takes 60 – 90 minutes. This traffic was about 5X worse — it looked like a post-nuclear war. I was in the car for an hour just to get out the tunnel, and another hour before I got 2 miles east of the tunnel. It was simply unconscionable.
Forget nuclear bombs, terrorist can disrupt the entire metropolitan area with a few tree saws . . .
