Since then I've used various suffixes when simply "Hurricane" is taken.
Wondered how you got your name, Hurricane. I haven't been here for awhile so is Jinx your real name, Hurricane?

OMG, if I didn't see it, I wouldn't have believed a tree like this can be uprooted!

A few years ago when we had the still very strong remnants of a hurricane blow through Indiana(if you can believe that!) I had my eldest tree in my yard uprooted and turned on it's side. Looks like it's the same size as in that picture.

I wished my old phone didn't break on me, I had some scary pics from that massive storm, including the size of that tree.

If it was raining frogs here I'd worry.

If I was falling from the clouds I'd ask for a parachute.

What baby tree?! Look at those roots! Look at its height. Not that I'm any expert on big trees, but this one looks quite huge to me.
