Alexa, play “I Can’t Stand the Rain” by Tina Turner
Not to refute Ms. Turner’s point, but isn’t it a relief when the sky opens up after walking around the city while the air feels like mud you can wade through?
Rain is a damper on some plans, though. What are the best ways to spend a night during a Philly summer thunderstorm? Cuddled up in some blankets, watching a movie? A book, a lap cat and a cup of tea? Staring longingly out of the window, pretending you’re in a music video while your favorite breakup album rolling in the background?
There’s nothing to make a curious mind brood more than a dark, stormy night. Maybe the latest round of rainy evenings had you wondering about your career and where you’re headed. Luckily, TWIJ shows up rain or shine, and we’ve always broadcast a 100% chance for a light shower of need-to-know tech opportunities.
