Tornados, Hail, Floods… its the midwest…

… NO its Brooklyn!

Last night I experienced the most amazing storm I have ever witnessed in my entire life! I’m not joking… and I know I am not alone… as this consensus was reached as myself and my neighbors gathered at the doorway of our brownstone stoop and watched quarter to golf ball size hail fall to the street, lighting illuminate the sky and the busy street that we all live on turn into a literal river.

I did my best to capture it all but I must admit I am no photojournalist and the awe of the scene kind of took my breath away.

But here is a few shots and some links to some videos taken from the doorway of my brownstone…

Rain drops… big and small…

Last night we had a heavy storm pass over New York City…

that didn’t stop me from going out and running errands…

Light reflects through the car windshield with rain drops.

… and it didn’t stop alot of people from going out either… traffic was heavy in spots as ambulances and police tried to clear accidents.

Ambulance lights shine through the window during a rain storm.
