It's A Hurricane!

Hurricane Irene has made landfall in North Carolina, and Hurricane Freak The Fuck Out is currently churning its way up the East Coast in front of Irene. Memes were generated! Alerts were issued! The subways are closing in New York City! Everybody out of the low lying areas! Booze and flashlights!

How are our readers along the Eastern Seaboard? Keep tabs on each other here, and swap war stories until your laptops run out of batteries. And, for Christ's sake, don't go surfing.
