Hoaxed Flowers

The fruit trees in my parking lot have just begun to bloom. (10/22/17)

Don't they know that "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive." as Trump tweeted.

Also: "Snowing in Texas and Louisiana, record setting freezing temperatures throughout the country and beyond. Global warming is an expensive hoax!"

Does the Chelsea Diner Have a Twin?

This is on Route 202 in Lebanon, Maine shortly after the NH/ME state line on the left (north) side fo the road, in the back corner of a diner parking lot (Dee's Diner, recently closed).  Seems to be used as a storage shed. 

Sorry for the poor picture quality, got them off Facebook because the quick photo I tried to take from my car was even worse.
