Just when I thought nothing would make me cranky enough to post today...

I am working on the 37th floor of a fifty-something story building next to the East River, right off of New York Harbor.

There is a hurricane approaching.

Now, I understand completely the physics of why skyscrapers are designed to sway in high winds. I am not the least bit afraid of heights. I know that we will only be seeing the tiniest edge of this hurricane, and even that won't be until tomorrow.

Still, all things considered, I'd really prefer if I couldn't hear the building creaking.
