So how about that storm last night, guys? April showers overtook NYC yesterday and a few of us city slickers were caught in the mix. There was thunder, there was lighting, and there was Instagram and Twitter to capture it all. We've rounded up the best shots from the uproar that proves spring in New York ain't nothin' to mess with. Now raise your hand if you're excited for those May flowers.
