BREAKING NEWS: Mountain Range Discovered in Central NJ . . . film at 11


A new mountain range has been discovered seven miles north of Princeton in central New Jersey. Eyewitnesses said that the sudden emergence of a "rainbow-colored series of mountains" snarled traffic between Philadelphia and New York and has led to widespread speculation that this is only the beginning of a major new geological era.

The major peak is currently flanked by two lesser peaks of equally vivid coloration. A truck driver motoring south on Route 206 claimed he saw sock-shaped clouds and the words "Surrender Barbara" in the skies over Somerset County but that remains unconfirmed.

NASA claims sightings of new and larger ranges in Oregon. Details as they emerge.

OMG! I will NEVER be embarrassed about the size of my sock yarn stash again. Mine is a baby compared to those piles.

I am in awe of you and your stash. Although this does go against modern scientific findings, I do like your version of how mountain ranges come into being.

I think I've stopped breathing! Must be a bad case of altitude sickness. What a mountain of sock yarn - I've just turned the same colour green as Shrek. *sigh*

Thank you! Thank you for providing hard evidence as proof to my husband that my sock yarn stash is truly not that large!

I knew you would understand! As far as stashes go, I know of some that make my mountain look like an anthill.

There is, however, a method to my madness. Wait and see . . .
