Ok, so, I was all set to sit back, lights out, and enjoy the big-ass thunderstorm. Great lightening, very close, loud rumbles, dark skies the whole bit.

And then…

We live on the corner of a major intersection in Brooklyn. The lights all went to red. So now, every 30 seconds I get to hear a resounding choir of cars honking their bloody horns at the people who don’t realize that they need to treat the intersection as a 4-way stop and take turns going.

And I was all set to write an entry about how, despite the fact that I’m not digging living in an urban setting quite as much as I once did, that there is something really special about storms in cities. Its the irruption of nature into the plans of humanity or something like that. And while all that is still true…

Ohmigod will they shut up with the horns!!!

On this day..
