Day 165: A Day for Webbed Feet

December 11th · No Comments

For the second day, New York is under a gray blanket of rain. Nothing epic or torrential, just a dose. Half an inch every 24 hours. Call me in the morning.

The puddles at the curb are just deep enough to flood my shoes. Indoors, everyone’s jackets and umbrellas shed drops and leave a thin rivulet down the aisle of the subway car.

The rain makes the pavement clean and glossy and reminds you there’s a sky up there even if you can’t see very much of it. Especially now, with all the twinkly Christmas lights, it’s apt that the weather outside is a little frightful.

I spied this orange frog crawling on 14th Street this morning. He didn’t spook because he’s made of rubber. Thank you to whoever left him there; he made a great subject for a blog post on a rainy day.
