Foreboding Mushroom Cloud Over Phoenix Turns Out To Be Microbust

Photographer Jerry Ferguson captured a rare natural phenomena while cruising over Phoenix with helicopter pilot Andrew Park on a weather report assignment for a TV station. A gigantic looming mushroom cloud appears to have declared its presence over the heavily populated city, which is in reality a “microbust”. This rare weather phenomenon happens after a thunderstorm when cooled air speeds and crashes to the land at over speeds of over 100 miles an hour, which can create a powerful air current, the result which resembles an alarming mushroom cloud.

Bryan Snider also caught this amazing event in a  time lapse video Phoenix’s Sky Harbor International Airport, which showed just how it formed over the city.

Cool Haunted Mansion Umbrella Will Make You Smile On a Rainy Day

You walk into Disney’s Haunted Mansion, and whether you’re in Orlando, Anaheim, or Tokyo, after the foyer you enter a place known as The Stretching Room. The Ghost Host intones, “Our tour begins here in this gallery where you see paintings of some of our guests as they appeared in their corruptible, mortal state. Your cadaverous pallor betrays an aura of foreboding, almost as though you sense a disquieting metamorphosis. Is this haunted room actually stretching? Or is it your imagination, hmmm? And consider this dismaying observation: This chamber has no windows and no doors, which offers you this chilling challenge: to find a way out!”

And the room stretches, growing many many feet taller, the four paintings on the wall (by Imagineer Marc Davis) also stretch, revealing that the seemingly innocent pictures are actually much more devious and reveal peril at every turn for those portrayed in them.

If you’re a Haunted Mansion fan then you know all this backward and forward. But how would you like to carry The Stretching Room around on a rainy day to cheer you up with a fancy new Stretching Room Umbrella? The price is $34.99 with a money back guarantee.


The Virunga Mountains form a formidable barrier across the western arm of Africa’s Rift Valley, a major fracture zone in the earth’s crust. Located to the north of Lac (Lake) Kivu, the chain of volcanic peaks extends west to east for about 80km (50 miles). Highest of the eight major peaks in the group is Karisimbi at about 15000ft (4507 meters). According to local legend, its snow-capped summit is the eternal resting place of the souls of the pure and virtuous. By contrast, the westernmost peak in the range, Nyiragongo 11382ft (3470 meters), is said to be the place where doomed souls are sent to expiate their sins.

Laying in bed

Suddenly feel ill in the pit of my stomach. I have this huge foreboding feeling, like something terrible is happening or going to happen. I start freaking out a little bit.
I think I know what it is, but I don’t understand why that would upset me so much…. Had a little cry thinking about the worst possible scenario.

Mind you, this could all be just from quitting smoking.

That wasn’t a rhetorical question.

[When Alphys was called into Dr Gaster’s office later that afternoon, summoned by a very succinct and foreboding text message, she safely assumed that her boss wasn’t about to take “oh dear” for an answer. She spent the walk from her lab station to Gaster’s door rummaging through her anxious thoughts in search of a decent explanation. She knew full well that if she could come up a good reason, she would be listened to; Dr Gaster had never been so mean to Alphys that he would dismiss her without hearing her ideas first. He treated his assistant fairly; he was outspoken, not cruel. But even that was enough to set her anxiety off, unfortunately.

Claws trembling, she turned the handle and entered, armed only with weak excuses and a nervous grin. She made an attempt to greet him, but her boss - never one to beat around the bush - wasted her efforts.]

I allowed you to set up this account purely out of curiosity to see if your theories held water, but it seems I was right after all. I fail to see how this system will help me to better document my research - as you suggested - when I was having no trouble simply writing it down.

W-well that’s just one of the benefits, sir! We can also use this to test the Undernet prototype! 

That’s true. But I can think of a hundred better ways to test it that don’t allow inquisitive strangers to ask me inappropriate questions.

[Alphys had held up as long as she could. All of ten seconds. She utterly withered under the doctor’s accusative gaze, any courage she had managed to muster gone in an instant. Perhaps he would listen if she was to use a different method?]

aaaaa please, sir! I miss the internet! People would be thrilled if we could get sites like these up and running in the Underground again! They’ve been so excited to be involved in our tests- a-and think of the benefits! It would open up communication channels all across the Underground, from Hotland all the way to Snowdin-!

It would make the people happy. Is that what you’re saying?

[And funnily enough, her tactics worked. Ranting had given Gaster no choice but to listen, and somewhere amidst her stream of consciousness, she must have said something that caught the doctor’s attention.]

Y-yes, sir!

[Gaster had gone quiet, deep in thought as his gaze wandered to the laptop screen, or perhaps something past it. Before Alphys could glance to see for herself, Gaster had already made up his mind, and he acquiesced with a heavy sigh.]

Fine, fine. We’ll continue.

[Alphys, already elated and excited by the prospect of catching up with her online fandoms, rejoiced.]


I have new messages. Open the inbox. 


[Smile planted firmly across her face, Alphys obediently clicked on the Ask Box icon as instructed.]

As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding. Like the Roman, I seem to see the river Tiber foaming with much blood.

Peter trying to hide behind Wade, right before Logan grabs him like a kitten and yanks his mask off. Peter gives him the biggest puppy dog look he can give with lip wobble and fake tears. And a small squeaky voice saying "Hey, Logan."

This is too cute. It’s too cute!! And Logan has had years of the fake innocent act, he is immune.


I’m sorry but as much as I love this beautiful scene, I am going to have to ruin the mood now.

Because this does NOT look good.

I mean it is romantic and wonderful and “yay, Freyate!” and everything but with Freyja lying in the snow like that and Hayate sitting beside her, it looks way too much like a foreboding that something bad is going to happen to her.

Also, snow often symbolizes death.

So even if Freyja survives this war, she doesn’t have many years left to live b/c of the Windermerean average life span lasting only 30 years.

Not to mention, this part where they’re having fun…

Hayate stops his chase after Freyja and reaches out towards her…

…only to take back his hand, all while appearing very uncertain about something. Maybe he finally realized his growing feelings for her? Maybe he’s afraid of accepting it because of everything else (her short life, the war, and the consequences of falling in love in general)?

I dunno…this just makes me sad. ;___;
