Everything Trump's touched lately is failing. Tariffs, negotiations with North Korea, controlling the deficit and keeping the economy growing.

Trump has quadrillioned down on his lie that Alabama was in the path of Hurricane Dorian, showing that the more Dorian blew, the more Trump sucks. So this weekend's theme is for songs about states and cities in the U.S...even if they haven't been needlessly panicked yet by the BSer who cried wolf.
This weekend's music thread is meant to keep folks on the southeast coast in mind with songs about storms, rain and all kinds of weather, bad and hopefully good.
