The Weather

NYC has just set a record for the wettest March since records have been kept (back to the mid-nineteenth century). This is annoying in general but has a particularly annoying side effect in my field: wet masonry fails at a higher rate than dry masonry. There have been a series of minor to mid-level wall collapses and similar events.

It's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, clay-product rain a gonna fall.

Everybody complains about the weather, but nobody's doing a damn thing about it!

I've had it with working during these monsoons...
