Storm over 55 Water

Today started out like any summer day: hot, relatively humid, and sunny.  Around 2:30 in the afternoon, the sky suddenly went quite dark, and we looked outside to see clouds gathering ominously over Brooklyn and the East River.  With a crash that shook the whole building, the storm started.  From the corner of the 40th floor, facing the river and the Brooklyn Bridge, the storm was quite literally eye-level.

Lightning bolts lit up the office, and it was really an awe-inspiring sight.  Well, either awe-inspiring or nerve-wracking, depending on your affinity for thunderstorms. I’ve always liked thunderstorms, so I enjoyed watching them. It’s small things like watching this storm that make me remember where I am: working in a corporate office, thousands of feet off the ground. I want to make sure I make the most of this experience.
