The time is 12:40am in Brooklyn, NY and we're currently waiting for Hurricane Irene to make her appearance. Right now its pretty rainy and the wind is picking up. I had to move my chairs from off my balcony because one of them already slammed into my door. I should have brought them inside anyway but just hearing the slam on the glass was a reminder.
They expect the worst of the storm to hit early on Sunday morning.
To everyone affected by the storm, please stay safe.
