As always the intersection of 42nd and Dixie turned into a full on river Monday.

But the floodwaters didn't stop people from trying to make their way through.

On the corner of 42nd and Dixie business owner Michael Eicher's seen it all.

He said: "Every time Dixie River flows you get people that will try to go through this intersection and get drowned out."

One spectator said: "Look at all the cars around here just stuck in traffic."

Taz Daniels said: "Idiots, just plain outright idiots."

Daniels is waiting for the water to recede. He's no stranger to Mother Nature's fury.

"If I wanted to see that much water I would have stayed back home in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina," he said.

Ok it was no Category 5 storm but it was enough stop even large vehicles.

Arasely Venegas learned a new skill today: "I am taking the water out of the filter system. And I figured since I'm a truck I won't get stuck."

She and many others have some words of wisdom.

"Don't drive in the rain where it floods."

"The waves caused by it will float your car down the river."

"Stay inside do not go on the roads unless you absolutely have to."

Police ask that you stay at home if possible during weather like Monday's and never float down a busy intersection in an intertube.
