"Just a man in a lawn chair whittling next to his submarine. On the side of the interstate," is actually the full quote from Atlanta's NewsChopper2 pilot Jason Durden, who tweeted out this amazing photo a few moments ago.
There's something so American about this image. The submarine abandoned on the road. The calm response. The easy access to whittling materials. This is what it means to be a world power.
Durden explains what happened:
FYI sub is Hunley replica and on its way from Charleston, SC to TN on 20 wb at 285. Something on trailer broke.
