It wouldn't be a legitimate hurricane without an almost-naked guy in a horse head costume running around during some poor local news person's live shot. This happened in DC.
There's a GIF too. Update: This is the guy! Jimmy Kruyne of Washington, DC. He planned the whole thing, but didn't expect it to go viral. His tweeted triumphant self-portrait below.
He's okay but he's no Hurricane Bear.
(Thanks, Dean Putney, and David Pescovitz!)
The news crew is down the block, Im thinking horse mask and swimming trunks?
