A photo described as a tanker approaching Hurricane Isabel at sea has been spreading around though email. And I have to admit, I've contributed to its spread, forwarding it on to friends and family. But David Emery informs us that it's a hoax. Well, the picture itself is real. But it doesn't show Hurricane Isabel. Instead, it shows a tanker approaching Tropical Cyclone Graham. But whether it's Isabel or Graham, it's still a really cool photo.

I've seen this photo before and it was taken on Lake Superior, so i was told. The tanker does look like the ones i seen when i lived in Upper Mich and you can see going through the Soo Locks.Posted by Spike in SC on Sat Oct 22, 2005 at 02:50 AM
