If weather reports are to be believed, Hurricane Irene is set to batter the Eastern seaboard this weekend, hitting the Carolinas early Saturday before heading up the coast.
Meteorologists are predicting that this will be the biggest storm to hit the coast in decades. If you're living in one of the areas set to experience it, we'd love to see your photos. (But please -- and most importantly -- stay safe during the hurricane.)
IMPORTANT: To submit your original pictures, post images that are at least 600 x 400 pixels at 72 dpi on your blog by 9AM ET Monday morning. Please also include a little information about where each pair of photos was taken.
Be sure to tag your photos "tracking hurricane irene." We'll feature our favorites on the Monday cover of Open Salon. We may also run a slide show of the best pictures on Salon.
Please note that by tagging your photos "tracking hurricane irene," you're giving us permission to cross-post them (with credit, of course) on Salon.
