people who think they can outsmart or outpower nature. When faced with dangerous and rapid rising of water, do the smart thing and turn around. You may regret it later.

2 Jeers to
the people who don’t take dock safety seriously. This month, the lake had a close call with eight friends experiencing electric shock in the water while swimming.
