Mary's birthday ... and quite a light show

It's about 8:30 pm, and we've just been hit--not literally, thank goodness--with a major lightning storm with some pretty hard rain.

The sky is literally lighting up every few seconds, in a way that I haven't really seen before. It's almost like giant paparazzi, and it's a strange color: sort of purple/blue/white.

From our vantage point, way up on top of a cliff overlooking the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline, it's all quite a sight--although right now, the skyline is obscured by the rain and clouds. All that's visible are the lights along the city street bordering the river and the red "New Yorker" sign.

Just saw a lightning bolt come down right around the Empire State Building. Quite a light show ... all for Mary's birthday!
