A tropical storm is laying some serious wood to the Bean. The horror. The horror. Photos after the jump.
Yes, this post consists of Tweets you could easily get by starting at Twitter. But if the Globe can do it and pretend it's news, so can we. Irene already ruined our weekend plans, so we're holed up in the deluxe Boston Phoenix emergency bunker with a bottle of vodka and the iPad glued to #MAIrene. We'll be posting the best photos via Storify in yet another post with "blow" and "Irene" in the headline, because that's what newspapers do on a day like today.
