New News from New York

Many will have already heard, but little one found a job.
In fact, she found two. From zero to two in one day.

First on the W2 is Macy’s. Tried and true.
Second is Potbelly’s Sandwich Shop. New and hopefully yummy.

The transition from job hunter to job holder is always a good one.
This one was, however, slightly dampened.

By rain.
Apparently a good hard rain, complete with thunder.

As little one was relaying to me her good fortune, she let slip that it was raining, and in fact she was dripping. (All this while trying to find a subway entrance.) And she noted that when the rain started, everyone else stepped back into storefronts to wait it out.

Not our intrepid Northwesterner. If you are in Seattle and try to wait out the rain, you may wait a month or so. We don’t let our rain keep us indoors.

Little one is learning the difference between the rainstorms of the northwest and summer thunderstorms of the east.

But isn’t that what trying out new places is all about – learning how to be a local.

    Great to hear! Ashley will be looking for a job in Manhattan this year—or so she says. East coast rain is WAY different, so much more drenching. I’m sure she found that out. šŸ™‚

      It took about a month from when she arrived. Not too bad since it was a cold start in a new city. Rashly knows the place, so hopefully easier.

    Has she found out about sidewalk umbrella sales, yet? As soon as the sky threatens, street vendors pop up, selling $5 umbrellas. It looked like the umbrellas might only last through one or two storms, but hey, you need one now. Get your fine umbrella, only five dolla!
