Hurricane Prep: Protecting Wall Street

Wall Street Storm 1

Wall Street Storm 3

I just wish I could have been there yesterday to help place sandbags at the NY Stock Exchange, our most critical institution, and also assist in taking down the humongous American flag to protect it from the hurricane. (The building looks naked without it, wouldn’t you agree?)

    Then I’ll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin’
    But I’ll know my song well before I start singin’
    And it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard, it’s a hard
    It’s a hard rain’s a-gonna fall

    B Dylan
    first public performance, Sept 1962, Carnegie Hall, NYC
