Manhattan just before the storm

A severe thunderstorm accompanied by rain and strong winds moved into Manhattan, Queens and other parts of New York City. A severe thunderstorm warning is in effect and there are reports of damage.

“For your protection move to an interior room on the lowest floor of a building,” the National Weather Service said, warning that the storm is likely to cause damage to roofs and trees.

I’ve been thinking a lot about leaving New York lately. I’ve spent most of my life here, it feels like home, but sometimes I feel too comfortable. Its too easy to be here. I don’t feel challenged or excited anymore. I don’t know if I just need to travel and see more of the world, or if I need to move away. But this grey, rainy day sums up how I’ve been feeling a lot lately.
