Hurricane Irene [VIDEO]

Before this weekend, only one hurricane was big enough, hyped enough and had big enough an impact for me to remember it. In 1999, I recall traipsing through my parents’s backyard, playing in the aftermath of Hurricane Floyd, splashing in an overrun creek behind his house.

Twelve years later and back at his home to attend the wedding of a childhood friend, we hunkered down to take on Hurricane Irene, memorably one of the first, big storms in the social media age.

So, once again, as the storm passed, I went out to the same creek and saw it somewhat less subdued but overrun nonetheless.

I also saw this cool video tracking satellite images as Irene hit the East Coast.
