Hurricane Earl Lands and Twitter Laughs

Sometimes laughter is the best medicine.

Hurricane Earl

The Washington Post reports that in the face of danger and Hurricane Earl landing, some used Twitter to relieve tension. There was a lot of frustration and angst expressed, but in the midst of the storm, some posted jokes about it. The Washington Post pulled together some of its favorites. KatyRich posted, "A gust of wind knocked a slice of pizza out of my hand. Hurricane Earl, you have already gone too far."
