Missing 74-Year-Old Saved After Photographer Spots Her Literally FROZEN To The Ground Outside After An Ice Storm!
Keith Sheldon is a Tennessee man who has a thing for photography.
So when there was a big ice storm in Franklin, Tennessee, Keith grabbed his camera and went out to shoot the landscape.
At one point, the road got too icy and he had to turn around, noticing a car stuck in a ditch while doing so.
He started taking pictures of the car, then noticed something… a woman was lying on the ground next to the vehicle!
It was a missing 74-year-old woman who was literally FROZEN to the ground! Craziest part??
It's Groundhog Day! Even Though He's Wrong More Often Than Not… What Did Punxsutawney Phil Predict??
Punxsutawney Phil is probably one of the least reliable weathermen in history.
Though we're pretty sure Phil hasn't adjusted for global warming over the past decade… so maybe it's not entirely his fault.
Regardless, people still rely on the little guy to predict just how much winter is left.
So, when the little critter popped out of his home in Gobbler's Knob (heh heh), Pennsylvania, what did he see?
Hamsters make super adorable pets who always bring the cuteness!
We could watch a hamster do anything, from running through tubes to watching them shove little bits of food into their cheeks!
Isn't that amazing?? The whole cheek stuffing thing?
Hamsters look so cute when their faces get all puffed up with food… but what's the science behind that? Where is all that food stored? Just how big are a hamster's cheek pouches??
Thankfully, the BBC series Pets - Wild at Heart has the answer!
They not only filmed a hamster eating a bunch of food… they filmed it in X-ray!!
Wanna know exactly what's going on when a hamster is stuffing its cheeks?? Check out the video (below) to find out!!
This is so NUTS!
Who would expect a freakin' tornado to pop up out of nowhere in California of all places?!
In the "fanfest" area of the Rose Bowl, the day before the big game a dust devil blew in.
Yes, a dust devil. The same type of swirly wind event that makes mini leaf-tornados in supermarket parking lots.
They can get pretty big, and when you combine a powerful dust devil with several tents and canopies, which weigh nothing and are basically sails, you get a tentnado.
And it's pretty damn serious. Even an entire bounce house is picked up and hovers for several seconds!!
We're glad there were no kids in that bounce house! That ride would've been WAY too fun and would've ruined any future ground-based bounce houses for them.
Seriously though, no one was injured and that's a miracle!
Check out the video (below) and watch the confused cow person not know what to do.
Birds are masters of the sky, there's no denying that.
The fact that they also have legs and can walk makes them pretty competent on land too!
But what if birds mastered swimming? They'd be the ultimate all-terrain creatures!!
Well one great horned owl proved that holy heck we're all about to be taken over by owls. Because this owl was spotted doing the breast stroke.
It’s like Momma Nature just hates music or something!
Philadelphia had one of the most epic lineups for the Made in America festival this weekend, but it was almost cancelled because of thunderstorms!
At about 6:15 pm, people were told over the speakers to evacuate the site, but to remain calm.
The City of Philadelphia, Roc Nation and Live Nation all okay-ed the decision to have everyone leave momentarily, before being told they could go back in an hour later.
The festival’s official Twitter kept fans informed throughout the unexpected exodus, saying
Oh CNN… what's happening over there??
LOLz, we like to tease those over at the world's oldest
and most well-respected cable news network, but this time they really screwed the pooch!
Most folks celebrated the extra-long holiday weekend with delicious food, extra naps, and perhaps a frosty adult beverage, but avid readers of CNN.com were perhaps not quite so lucky!
That's because the online new outlet published a user-submitted article stating that a huge friggin' asteroid was headed straight for the Earth and there was a 49% chance mankind would be wiped out in approximately 27 years.
The story, which ran for over 24 hours, warned:
