Hurricane Sandy isn’t supposed to hit the East Coast until late Sunday or sometime on Monday, but that hasn’t stopped the Internet from freaking out over what’s expected to be the biggest storm of the season. It’s 2012, so it didn’t take long for #Frankenstorm to start trending on Twitter and it hardly took much more time for @TheFrankenstorm to become a thing. If social media is any indication, you’re already shit out of luck if you need batteries and milk.
