Q: What's this sign's least favorite fast food restaurant?


A: Wendy's


Seriously though, look at the damage the wind did to this sign. The long-side of the sign was parallel to the wind, yet the force was so strong it bent the arches sideways. That's just unreal.


One observation I had while driving through the hurricane damaged areas of Beaumont and Lake Charles was that the McDonalds signs were always recognizeable. Even the ones that had no glass at all were obviously the famed "Golden Arches." Meanwhile, all of the rectangular signs of other establishments provided absolutely no value when the glass was shattered. I would be interested to see how much better the McDonalds in those areas recover compared to the other similar businesses -- especially along the interstates.
