Rain catches subway riders off guard

So this afternoon’s rain continued right into the evening commute time, and I don’t think people were prepared. I have a feeling that tons of people left their apartments not even thinking that there was a chance of rain today.

I have to admit, this morning did seem pretty promising.

As I look around myself right now, I don’t see many people with umbrellas. There are a lot of riders sporting the “wet cat” look where they are completely soaked to the bone. I did see a woman in blue hospital scrubs coming out of the subway station as I was going in. She was SOAKED. It looked like someone hosed her down. But hey, who’s gonna argue with a nurse in nothing but wet scrubs, right?

I’m also noticing a lot of people with their sweatshirt hoods pulled up. Nothing like a wet towel on your head.

Luckily for many (mostly women) it has been a little colder lately, so many ladies left the house with light jackets. Now those jackets are playing double duty as rain slickers.

Where are all the simple white t-shirts on the ladies when you need them most?

Live from the subway, back to you in studio…
