Y@ Speak: The Hunker Games

At this point, we hope, you have emerged from your dark and clammy Hunker Chamber, removed your "GO AWAY ISAAC WHO DAT"-emblazoned plywood window coverings and started to move on from this dumb storm. But not everyone fared well, so be sure to help your neighbors, be patient with strangers and remember: don't monkey around power lines.
