Quick catch up on several topics:
- Today is the first day of fall and the weather in New York City is cooperating with a turn to the cool. Love it.
- Heard from the friends and relatives I know that were in the path of Florence and all seem fine but flooding has really taken a toll. Even the Blue Ridge Parkway has been shut down for more than a week as check the route and hillsides for damage from the punishing rain.
- Did you feel the earth move? Where I live in upper Manhattan our neighborhood is on a long tall ridge resting on a giant strata of rock. Our building is cantilevered out over the rock with struts attached to it. A fifteen foot section of stone dislodged somewhat below our building, damaging two vehicles but fortunately no people. The pictures below are twelve stories below our building. It happened the night I returned from my trip and you see it just after falling and now blocked off for evaluation. I blame the extra weight of the souvenirs I brought back. Sorry, I’ll be more careful next time.
