I wrote 17 inches of rain fell in Central Park. I read another article this morning. It says 1.7 inches.
So either the NY Times made a typo, or I misread.
I stand corrected.
On another, but related note, I was talking to someone who just moved back to Israel from NYC. I was telling him he was lucky not to be here yesterday with the horrible subways, etc etc.
His response: "At least you have a subway!"
I will remember to be apprecative!
