As the East Coast prepares for the arrival of Hurricane Irene this weekend, many celebrities and rock stars have joined ordinary folks on Twitter in chattering – or straight-up freaking out – about the coming storm. Here's a handful of some of the best tweets we've seen this afternoon.

Caught myself whistling 'Touch Of Grey' by the Dead as I boarded up windows, and I had to stop briefly to marvel at my own will to survive.

It's pre-hurricane clothing optional Friday here at Casa de Wurster. Casa de Wurster is a Mexican/German restaurant I frequent often.
