(NEWSER) – A couple’s first date in California’s San Bernardino National Forest turned out to be anything but romantic yesterday as the remains of Hurricane Linda sent a storm of heavy rain and hail over the area. While hiking in Forest Falls, east of Los Angeles, the pair became trapped in a flash flood and attempted to cross a waist-deep river runoff hand in hand, a fire official tells NBC Los Angeles. The current soon pulled both underwater and the frantic woman watched as her date was swept away. An off-duty police officer heard her screams and was able to pull her from the water, while another hiker also ran to help. “We just found her in a state of shock,” he says. Police called off the search for the Rancho Cucamonga man, 29, when a body was found about a mile from where he vanished, report KABC and CBS Los Angeles. A hiker’s backpack was also found. Also in San Bernardino County yesterday, fire officials say they had to rescue an individual whose vehicle was swept away in a flash flood, per the AP. NBC Los Angeles reports a man—it’s not clear if he’s the same person—exited his vehicle and was swept into a storm drain. He was found alive, though his current condition is unknown. A flash flood warning is still in effect for the area; trees have been uprooted and streets are still filled with water. (This first date also ended badly.)
RIP Guy. But sometimes nature just forces us to change and as we all know, conventional dating has gone by the way side. Netflix and chill is what dating is all about now a days. I mean im cool with that. Get use and learning about one another over maybe a few episodes of The Office. Picking and choosing what shows to watch and what to laugh at tells a lot more about a person than people lying to each other on a normal date. Its more honest that way and this is natures way of telling these two just that. And off the bat rule number 1, go to a dinner or some place public. Don’t go on a first date with a guy in the middle of a forest, that has a major rapey vibe. What happened to just a nice restaurant or a bar where food brings out the honesty in people. 2, how about checking the weather app next time before you go out period? I mean here in SoFla we kinda expect rain most of the times but we still check when it’ll supposedly rain. Well maybe if you’re going through a tropical storm or hurricane brewing in your backyard, maybe dont make plans fucking hiking that entirely takes place outdoors in a large as fuck remote national forest. You kinda deserve get the that flash flood for that.
(NEWSER) – A 51-year-old California woman who climbed up a steep slope behind her house to rescue one of her cats ended up needing to be airlifted off the cliff, CBS Los Angeles reports. The cat, meanwhile, made it down safely on its own. While attempting to retrieve the cat yesterday, Sara Beebe slid about 50 feet and twisted her ankle, according to the Orange County Register. Too hurt to climb the rest of the way down, Beebe started yelling for help, and eventually a neighbor called 911. Firefighters used a helicopter to airlift Beebe to safety, and she appeared to have learned her lesson. “I am going to have to start letting the cat be a little more independent,” Beebe tells CBS.
Fucking cats. I dont want to be one of those people who hates on cats but its so hard not to. Its more that they’re just not awesome like dogs. I dont hate them hate them, just would never really own one. But worst than cats are the cat people that come along with it. Always feel the need to baby them and shit. Always think they’re cute and shit even tho cats never smile or seem joyful. That cat doesnt want to stay with you 24/7 it wants to explore and shit. I mean cats fall outta trees and shit all the time and land on their own feet. But of course you had to be a crazy cat lady and end up stranded on a steep cliff and needing a god damn helicopter to airlift you off off the side of a hill. Honestly think about it. Think about how god damn ridiculous that sounds. Half of me thinks the cat wanted to strand you there just to escape your clutches. Like it was an elaborate plot from the jump
