Things are still moving along with the flood. Many of the flood waters have started receding, but that does not mean they have completely receded, it’s just not as bad as 2 days ago. There is still a water restriction, water is still safe, but our reserves are depleting quickly. And yes, it’s been very heartbreaking. I am on the verge of sobbing with every photo and video of flooding in my hometown.
So, I thought I’d bring a little sunshine to those affected. While this is still a very real and serious situation, we could all use a little laugh. And honestly that’s something that my hometown is good at, irony, sarcasm, and laughter. First, please read this essay by one of our biggest fans of our hometown hockey team, it is truly inspiring.
The mall that is flooded has an “Aquarium” restaurant. The tanks broke and most of the salt-water fish died, but apparently the piranhas (yes, I said piranhas) are doing just fine and are swimming around the mall! (video)
During the flooding coverage last weekend, one of the local weathermen was sketching the storm’s path on the screen, and um…well, came up with a certain unintentionally funny anatomically correct joke. Thanks to Jimmy Kimmel for taking it to another level. (video)
