"No, You Can't Go On This Road."

Mood: Depressed
Playing: Nothing Currently
I've spent my whole weekend doing schoolwork. Everything from Geometry to Biology to History Day. It's really not that fun at all...To take a break from it all, I decided, "It's time for a post!" These photos are from December 26, the day I saw the most epic flood ever.
Of course, I had Megumi in the car with me. I'm just that amazing that I always have a cute plushie and my camera, so I can take pictures for a plushie story, whenever, where ever. This is the first time I've seen a flood, so I had to go check it out!
Look at that building that's under water! That's at least a 10 feet tall building. I thought it would be cool to stand on top of the building...
Here's Megumi standing by the flooded area. In the background, you can still see some of the buildings and the ramps...
Look how far the water goes...You can even see the yellow road lines slowly start to disappear. I wanted to go home and grab the kayak, so I could go kayaking on this. Wouldn't that be interesting? Just kayak around and see the buildings that are underwater. This was the road we were supposed to take to get to our destination...
Just a picture to show you how high up the water goes. You can see that the water is almost swallowing the sign. This is the type of stuff you see on TV, when watching the news. I hope you found this post somewhat interesting. If not, let me tell you something truly inspiring. from the Black Eyed Peas is legally blind. Even with contacts in, his prescription is around-11. When he was growing up in the Philippines, people told him he wasn't going anywhere because he couldn't see. When he was little, he wanted to be a nurse, until a teacher told him he would never be able to become one. Even with so much stopping him, he is still able to be so successful and do so much. I think it's truly amazing what he's done with his life, don't you?
Have you ever had a flood before? What do you think of and what he's done with his life?


  1. when i was little i wanted to be in a flood because i watched this miyazaki film about these pandas and there was a scene where the whole place flooded up to the roof and they would go swimming inside their house *__*

  2. Oh my gosh that flood is craaaaaazzzy!!!!!! Love that stuffed bear!!

  3. aww so cute megumi!
    yah~we had flood here in the philippines but I have't really experienced it >.< I don't want to!O.O

  4. riysse-I actually always thought it would be interesting to go swimming in a house. As long as you didn't get trapped and end up drowning....

    Jen in the Purple Pants-I know right! TV worthy, if you ask me!

    kaizokumousy-Megumi says thank you! I hope the flood doesn't ruin anything for you! Hope it all turns out well in the end.


I love hearing what you have to say! Please leave a comment! ♥
