It's kind of storming now, and the rain is vertical, not horizontal, but it still seems to be more like the standard-issue summertime thunderstorm. Though I'm sure the people on the east end of town aren't too thrilled with things.
I was just down in the tunnel for lunch. It's surprisingly empty for noon on weekday. It has the air of a holiday in that half of the places are open, and there just aren't that many people walking around. The good news is that the Starbucks under Pennzoil Place is open -- if you're into overpriced coffee that it is. And the WaMu in the tunnel down this way is open, as is McDonald's if you want lunch.
So that it's it from the 22nd floor of the Bank of America Building. This is John Royal reporting.
