WABC posted an amazing video of lightning striking the water feet away from a tugboat.

Sometimes it’s easy to miss NYC.
I meant to post this earlier; despite living in New York City for 15 years, I had never gone to the Chinese New Year (春節) parade. This video of the Dragon Dance (舞龙) was shot on the parade route on Mott Street near Pell.

I walked down to DUMBO this morning. It looks like the East River came up into the park, but by the time I got there the river had settled a bit. The current was very strong; it looked like it was almost boiling with whitecaps on the top. I stitched together a bunch of photos; click through the image to see it at Gigapan.
[Updated: added better version of panoramic photo.]
