Well, it hasn’t hit us yet as of this writing, but it is pretty easy to predict that the Hamptons lost power, several residents reported tree damage, and a lot of people got a lot of really, really cool pictures of this storm. A few surfers probably hurt themselves as well.

Old Man McGumbus, 102, and World War II vet, was handing out wanted posters door to door for several men whom he identified as “Hippies” and needed to be arrested. Most of the men, who are well known for wearing skinny jeans, eating tofu, listening to bands that nobody knows about and have nappy hair, got upset by the posters and confronted McGumbus about it in a show down that took place on Main Street. McGumbus, who is the President of the Shelter Island Assault Rifles Club, drew his custom M-16 rifle during the show down. One of the hippie men was quoted saying, “Hey man, not cool, seriously bro, not cool!!!” To which McGumbus said, “I’m not your bro, YOU DAMN HIPPIE!” Just before he was about to fire, McGumbus was tackled by his former girlfriend, Old Woman McGippie, 101 and former World War II field nurse. The two wrestled in the street a bit until McGumbus complained of chest pain and had to be rushed to the emergency room. It turned out that his heart is fine, it was just a big wad of beef jerky that was stuck in his esophagus. No charges have been filed.
