The Morning GIF: Eye of the Frankenstorm

Hurricane Sandy
Hurricane Sandy looks almost peaceful from outer space. But soon, it morphs into Frankenstorm.

Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Vayu, capricious and moody Hindu god of winds, will not be forgotten. Particularly not by residents of the east coast of the US over the next few days. They are preparing for “Frankenstorm,” a more malevolent version of the infamous blow-down which inspired Sebastian Junger’s best-seller The Perfect Storm.

For now, all civilians can do is buy bottled water, batten down, and point to this GIF of Frankenstorm component Hurricane Sandy as shot from space. And, possibly, break for the Midwest as fast as their Greyhounds can carry them. Take a close look, and have your partner start the car as you realize that this is what your immediate future looks like. Murky is the least of it.
