One of the advantages of moving up here from Georgia was that I would no longer have to worry about life-threatening weather. Just two weeks before I left the South, tornado sirens interrupted my afternoon nap and three houses within a block of me were destroyed. Imagine my unpleasant surprise to look out of my office window a few minutes ago to see that familiar murky yellow light that can only mean a twister is in the area. I checked the Weather Channel’s website, and sure enough, a funnel cloud has been spotted over Jersey City. Sheesh. At least it’s headed for midtown. Times Square is overrated anyway.
