The flooding happened so fast, people a the mall are stranded!



We've had some severe weather run through.  The local news has been right on top of it!  They were talking about flooding and water rescues in Lawton.  Now I am not making light of this at all.  But some people are just idiots.

Just before going off the air the weather reporter said, "I know some of you really want to take your mothers out to dinner for Mother's Day, but please be careful and please don't drown!"

Not at all.  There are a lot of low areas that flood in Lawton.  Last year on my birthday it flooded so bad that there were catfish in people's back alley ways.

Oh, I am glad I asked, because it was hard to tell the way he said it. 

Hope you all stay safe where you live and the flooding subsides.

PS:  Wow, catfish in people's back alley ways..........that's just too much !  surprised
