    Mike Hayes received a Hurricane Irene Award on Aug 26 for their post about Hurricane Irene. They would be here to accept this Award in person, but they're staked out at their local Walmart right now, stockpiling canned goods and toilet paper and, like, maybe a shotgun or two. There may be looting!
