I heard it was 103 yesterday, one of the ten hottest days since they started keeping records. Yuck. The subway station yesterday at second ave on the lower east side was the stinkiest station I've ever been in.

I'm always amused when I see you guys talking about it being 103 degrees, etc. That was the normal summer temperature for around 2 months of the summer where I grew up.

More than a century ago, though, New York was staggered by a heat wave during which temperatures reached the mid-90s—several degrees cooler than the 100-degree days already seen in the city this year. The 10-day heat wave, which began on Aug. 4, 1896, was a catastrophe. In "Hot Time in the Old Town," an engrossing account of this forgotten episode, Edward P. Kohn estimates that 1,300 people died in Manhattan and Brooklyn (the latter was technically not part of New York City at the time) as a result of high temperatures, high humidity and the unforgiving sun.

Break out the shovels and driveway salt -- a blizzard that could dump as much as 16 inches of snow is expected to slam the city starting this afternoon.

I wish you could send some of that to Denver. Record snowfalls in the mountains, but down here in the city - dry as a bone.
Oracle?

Really? I pictured you all snowed in! We had quite a storm, with lots of thunder last night and high winds that are still blowing at 50+. The snow is piled halfway up my windows.

I can picture you and Lola watching the storm. They say we will get some moisture on Thursday. We have had 1.5" for the WHOLE season.

I was chatting with a former exchange student last night who is living in midtown. She painted a pretty picture of softly falling snow last night. One more reason to be excited about our visit in June!
