It's heavily overcast and windy outside, but it's not raining yet.
The city is quieter than normal for a Sunday evening. Many stores and restaurants that would normally be open at this time are closed. Yet many are also still open. The restaurants that are open look pretty busy. There was a line of people at Gristedes buying last-minute supplies. Every place is sold out of bottled water; don’t people know that they can just fill an empty bottle with tap water?
