People are starting to freak out about the possibility that Hurricane Irene, a Category 3 storm currently hovering above the Bahamas, will bring rain to the Hamptons. Old, but fun fact: Statistically speaking, we should all be buying strawberry Pop Tarts right now because when a hurricane is coming, we, as a society, apparently buy this brand and flavor at a rate seven times higher than normal. Let's just hope the power doesn't go out and we have to eat those terrible, chalky things raw. [27 East, New York Times]
