WRAL was on the air for 20 hours straight Saturday covering Hurricane Irene with reporters and photographers across the Triangle and coast.

When they weren't on air, some of my co-workers were tweeting behind-the-scenes pictures. I scoured their Twitter accounts and collected some of my favorites. Enjoy!

Photographer Tom Normanly shared this funny photo of himself with the following message: "Tommy is tired. Tommy needs sleep. Tommy hates Irene. No amount of Diet Coke is helping."
