Flood watches and warnings... what to do

posted by Joel Riley - 

 A group of Indiana man made the best of recent flooding by going wakeboarding in a water-logged parking lot.  The video, recorded Wednesday by Brock Alexander, shows the filmer's friend, Devon Watts, riding a wakeboard while being pulled through a flooded parking lot in Shipshewana by another friend in a pickup truck.  Alexander said the parking lot is located outside of his work and he and his friends decided to attempt the stunt when melting snow and several days of rain made it into a miniature lake.

"This is how our group rolls," Alexander wrote.
