Shirtless Man/Centaur Braves Sandy, Goes for a Jog

Hurricane Sandy is on her way to making landfall, and folks in Washington and up the Eastern Seaboard are bracing for the inevitable impact. We're only human, after all.

The same, however, can't be said about this guy. 

While News4's Megan McGrath was live in Northwest's Bloomingdale neighborhood -- which is bracing itself for potential flooding -- a shirtless man/centaur ran through the shot, completely forgetting the fact that there is a large hurricane on the way and that it is currently in the low 50s.

(I knew that because of Storm Team 4's smartphone app, which is incredibly handy, free and available for download here; I promise nobody paid me more to say that)

And though we don't think this is the best idea in the world, it's certainly GIF-able and hopefully turned your weather-related frown upside down.

That's a smile, not an upside down frown. Work on that.

"Perhaps people are getting a little stir-crazy early," McGrath said. "You can either be scared and hide in your house or you can have a sense of humor about it. That's all I can say about that guy."

Yeah, I think Megan has it covered, both on television and in this post. Stay safe, but don't panic.
