The sign-toting human embodiment of talk radio will stage a protest of the National Weather Service on October 8 because they’ve run out of new things to hate.

A possible tornado struck Troy, Alabama, without warning on Thursday night, damaging several structures and overturning a tractor trailer along its path.
