Wearing a horse head, D.C. man runs through Hurricane Sandy without a shirt

posted at 11:21 am on October 29, 2012 by

For those of us hunkered down in Washington D.C., entertainment can be difficult to come by. But not to worry, one man is making sure everyone has a laugh before things start getting really rough in the D.C. metro area late Monday afternoon.

Update (AP): Was going to post this myself but Katie beat me to the punch. This wasn’t shot in NYC but it perfectly captures the mood here right now: Strange bordering on surreal, yet oddly invigorating.

Hasn’t even started raining here yet. It’s the wind and storm surges that are freaky deaky.

My lawn sprinkler puts out more water than what I see on this street corner. Taco Bell makes me put out more wind.

Do you have sedatives for your pets?

My power was out for about six hours this morning due to wind and rain, and I live on the West Coast. Could we get some 24-7 coverage over here please, it’s the apocalypse!

Us northerners know about Nor’easters. Not like the streamliner storms of the South that do their damage and leave the sun shining in their wake three hours later, the nor’easter is a slow moving freight that never seems to end. It’s a difference of 105mph winds for three to six hours or 65 mph winds for 25 – 30 hours. Unfortunately Sandy has truly become a Frankenstein creation. A storm manufactured from differemt meteorolgical parts, part ‘cane, part nor’easter, part dramatic Canadian cold front, part jet stream anamoly, with a dose of full moon. It will have a storm surge that traverses three high tides before it hits land.

The best nickname for this storm I’ve seen so far is “Sn’oreaster’cane.”

Say, why the long face, John? Heh.

Who’s that at the door? It’s Secretariat!

That’s a sign of the Apocalypse, isn’t it? Geez, this global warming is getting out of control.

16 days without power following Hurricane Ike, slept at home every night and didn’t miss any work. That’s where my pity thresh hold starts.
