In space, no one can hear you scream. The pictures below, from our friends at NASA. You can see more shots of Irene here. I stopped by Walgreens to get some odds and ends this afternoon, which turned out to be a terrible idea. (You can never have too much dental floss or deodorant!) My boss, who lives on Staten Island, reported that most of the shelves at his local story were emptied out last night. “Except for the ethnic food aisles,” he said, “where — so help me — they had stacked all the Poland Spring water.”
Meantime, Elizabeth Scalia has some helpful advice. Otherwise, stay in, stay safe, and pray.
