    Do you really need to be told about the flooding when the Highway looks more like a river than a road????

    I guess he says he didn't know about the flooding that was expected. I guess it happens, and is sudden when you hit a highway and the water just keeps getting deeper. He was lucky there were people willing to save him. It didn't look like a kid, just an older man.

    We had someone here on my sandbar during the recent hurricane get his truck stuck iin the surf. He also caught a DWI charge. An a bunch of fines to go along with it all.

    Did it after the evacuation orders were given no less. So the cops were pretty pissed. Can't drive on that part of the beach at this time of the year either, so another negative for that dude.

    I watched people go swimming right before and after the storm also. Despite the entire sandbar being knowing for strong rip currents, when the weather is normal.

    People ain't so smart.

    Sirscrapntruckalot - Maybe. Try again later. - The Magic 8 Ball.

    Dang, we don't have floods in Canada, eh? What a doofus, probably decided to turn around when his flip flops got wet. What warning, it can't happen to me,,and pull your pants up for heaven sake. Says a lot right there.
