It is currently raining sideways in La Belle NYC, which is in the middle of a Severe Thunderstorm Warning, in place until 5:45 p.m. tonight. We're expected to get 2 to 4 inches over the next hour or so, so if you weren't smart enough to wear your waterproof sandals today, SUCKS FOR YOU. There is also a flash flood warning in effect until 8 p.m., which you probably just found out thanks to a jarring alert on your smartphone.

It appears the rain is quite wet:
This huge storm came out of nowhere and it trapped a bunch of people in the rain and watching them fun for cover is so much fun!

The trains are doomed, goodbye, trains.
Holy shit, the rain's coming down so hard that it's blowing into the train every time the doors open 😳

Look at it roll in, so peaceful before the destruction hits:
The rain might also turn to hail.
My co-worker just informed me that we're supposed to have tornados and hail too. GREAT.

Anyway, we're all going to die, either tonight on a waterlogged B train or at some point in the next hundred years, right?
