Michgan's Loch Ness Monster has a new look, courtesy of a violent storm. Its head blew away from the rest of its body and is now adrift in the pond in which it had been anchored. This happened before Halloween, and the group who built the Monster are still trying to to figure out how to corral the wayward head.[RoadsideAmerica.com Team, 11/10/2010]
