Hurricane Irene is due to hit the East Coast tomorrow. Luckily I’m not in the affected zone, but I know quite a few people who are, including some who are very close to me and my new roommate (because of her former weekend plans).
To those in the affected zones, stay safe, don’t do anything rash, and please evacuate if you have to. You can track Irene online and see how she’s progressing. Many of the sites listed have iPhone and Android apps, so following the storm on your smartdevice (if you have one) is an option if your signal is good. Just don’t call the storm @Irene.
Stay safe out there, folks.
