Need a visual guide to the sadness that is this year's Irene-caused pumpkin shortage? Look no further than this video, taken in New Paltz, in which hundreds of pumpkins have their future as Jack-o-Lanterns brutally cut short by that cruel mistress, Nature.

Take things to the next level by syncing the video up to a gloomy soundtrack—we like Phillip Glass's Koyaanisqatsi for maximum melancholia. And remember, many farmers upstate were hit hard by the storm—show them a little love, right this way.
