Can't Fix Stupid...

hapsterhapster Posts: 7,445
Monsoon here yesterday. We had almost 7in of rain. Lots of flooding in the usual places...

Our town is really good about putting barriers up when the roads are flooded. That said, you can't keep stupid people at bay forever.

This woman moved the barriers to attempt this fjord crossing... She had to be rescued. I got there after she was taken away with her dog. Nice way to wreck a BMW.

And now that the waters receded somewhat, I'm just chilling...

    I had no idea you lived so close to a white water rafting river. Wow - incredible amount of rain. You were well equipped to "enjoy" natures show, a good beverage and a good stick.

    we lived in lancaster for a couple years and we had a few memorable floods that did terrible damage. Hummelstown lost several restuarants and old historic buildings and it was quite a memory for my wife and I. Stay safe and enjoy the peace

    That's kinda like to people who drive around rail road crossings. I guess barricades are optional for some folks.
