It's an obvious fake. The winds are blowing from South, the
flag in the lower right is pointing the wrong direction.

And Bruce the Shark doesn’t have a Laser, so, he isn’t dangerous at all.

Just need to add the Cloverfield monster to make it just right.

Well heck this means I’ve not really seen an honest image of this storm until this article.

All the real ones look like a spring severe storm in the south. Stupid media hype.

The photo of the statue of liberty with the huge storm cloud above it (and the speedboat in the foreground). Ceiling Cat, Godzilla, etc. have been additionally shooped into it in this thread.

I lived in Manhattan for 8 years and Miami for 4-5

and Nashville for 9

been 4 years now out more rural and would like to be even further out

you should move

this is where real America is...trust me...what is left of it

i’m just sorry i wasted most of my adult life figuring it out

if I want city...i can be downtown Nashville in 40 min

out here...it's about 50-50 north/south mix and the midwesterners tend to be decent folks

and we vote 70-80% R

in urban areas ...even Salt Lake ...it will be the reverse of that

so why bother

Nashville is Austin on the Cumberland...they are as twin sisters as exist two cities in America

Is that your deck? That is some shocking damage. Hopefully soon the storm will stop and you can get out there and begin to repair it.
