New Yorkers And Rain

I am fascinated by the way New Yorkers freak out every time it rains. Ladies pull on their colorful Hunter boots, giant umbrellas come out of the closet and for some reason subways get steamy and humid. (I never understood that phenomenon. Physics people, help me out?)

Today we had quite a downpour, so bad that I had to hang out in the lobby of a building just three blocks from my apartment to wait it out. There were about ten other people in there with me, all in awe of the rain. It reminded me of this bit from Seinfeld.
