Day 198: Weather theater

A harsh green curtain
Of rain and ferocious wind
Drops on Brooklyn's stage

The Sept. 16 tornado actually wasn't my first Brooklyn tornado. We had an impressive one back in August 2007. My block was untouched, but the surrounding area was a mess. In addition to the streets filling with water, the entire subway system flooded, causing a close approximation of total chaos. Last Thursday, our living room window was a front row seat for some epic weather. We got to watch the clouds sweep across the sky and basically attack the streetscape. It was pretty cool.

  1. Oh man. I remember that. Worst commute of my life. Took me 4 hours to get to work. I'll never forget it.

    Great haiku.
