We're in peak summer heat and storm season. Have not been out sailing in a while but we do get out on the water in kayaks every once in a while. Yesterday we had a rainstorm of biblical intensity. Only lasted for 20 minutes or so but it turned our street into a river. Some kayaking ensued. It amazes me how many people decided to drive down our street even though the flooding was clearly visible from a distance. The Darwin award goes to the driver of the red car in the video. After passing our house she drove/floated off the road into our neighbors yard and got temporarily stuck. Once the water receded a bit, she got free of the mud and proceeded to turn around and come back through our flooded street. The second time around the car had enough and stalled in front of our house. Unbelievable.
