Fog

Tried to photograph the lighted "towers," but the fog isn't allowing it. When a heavier cloud passes through the lights as they trail into the sky, there's a momentary white glow that illuminates the columns more clearly.

Here's the link to the livecam of the lights from CNN, and a photo from Canada's National Post:

When we visited NYC in 2002 after being here in August of 2001, the Empire State Building looked so gigantic--it had been dwarfed by the towers and had lost some of its majesty. Now it looks like the island's centerpiece.

Everyone has their memories of 9/11, so we won't bore you with ours. We're all thinking of what that day means: to us, to our country, to the world. Suffice it to say that we, Jeff and Mary, feel ashamed at the way our government has chosen to respond to 9/11. We hope and pray--and intend to continue to voice our opinions--that the next election will turn things around. We're trying to remain optimistic, even though it is difficult.
