    Tomorrow's going to be AWESOME NEW YORK CITY!

    32 degrees, 2-4 inches of rain/snow!

    Do y'all think the manhattan or brooklyn bridges will be rideable?

    you guys wouldn't be that psyched if you were messengers. it's not fun.

    important edit: if you are a messenger and psyched... you're nuts. there i said it.

    do you guys get better pay/more runs/less competition when the weather is bad? I messengered for three weeks in the summer in Philly, and always for the worst company.

    more runs because of less competition. at least that's the way it is for me, at a big company. redmenace will probably get the same amount of work, because all of his coworkers are pros. (right?)

    haha, no... i'll get the same amount of work because i am a ****ty messenger. that doesn't mean the rest of the crew are not pros, though. they shred and they'll prove it tomorrow.

    More runs, less comp as well. My company, strangely, pays "inclement weather bonuses" which help soften the blow, a little.
    RM- I'm psyched. See you out there.

    Pretty gnarly out there boys, be safe. I never minded the snow so much, but when it changes to rain(like it's supposed to today...) it's all bad.

    oh man it's great out there in philly...about 25 and raining. hahaha...f'yeah! sorry redmenace, i'm nuts...and from wisconsin...on that note, boots, are you a messenger in WI, and if yes, where at?

    -jason

    edit. sorry, if you were still a messenger in wi, you probably wouldn't be concerned about the weather in nyc, and/or, you'd be used to it.

    It is cold and raining today and I'm sick at home looking like a wimp.
    I might go to work just to prove otherwise...

    today does suck. and i haven't even left yet. i have to admit i used to have fun working in total **** weather like this, but that time has passed. i'm old now and i am no longer amused. i'd like to -play- in the snow but to work in it is less interesting to me. i think that's because if i'm playing, i'm doing it on my own terms and if i get tired/wet/cold/bored i can just leave and go inside. that's not going to be the case today.

    let's rip **** up, NYC.
