In Case You Were Wondering About How Bad Hurricane Irene Was Going to Be …
I’m not saying we’re arming ourselves with dead squirrels, but this hurricane is supposed to be insane. It is scheduled to start hitting the New York area tonight, and people are expressing their panic by buying tons of wine at Trader Joe’s and joking about zombies. And the fact that they might have to read books by candlelight. But we at The Mary Sue are intent on surviving this thing and posting as much as we can before our power is interrupted completely. Even if we have to use smoke signals! … In the rain and wind! … Yeah, that might not work either. But dammit, we’ll try it first!
