Torrential Rains Cause Giant Bubble to Form on Lawn; Homeowner Tries to Pop It
Humor| | By Jason Owen
How many people love popping bubble wrap? That’s not rhetorical. It’s almost universally loved, probably for its effects on calming a person down. So, it’s maybe safe to say that when a lawn bubble popped up in one family’s backyard, the feeling of relief would wash over them like a cool, spring rain when they finally got rid of it.
James Callender and his family were the recipients of torrential rains in Cambridge Springs, Pennsylvania. Once the rains had passed and the sun came out, they noticed something in their yard that hadn’t been there before.
“I’ve never seen this before in all my life,” said Callender in his now viral video. “Apparently it’s rained so much it’s created a large water bubble in our yard.”
Callender uses a spike to poke holes into the water bubble to relieve the pressure, but just the tiniest stream begins to pour out. Callender proceeds to step onto the lawn bubble, but still just the tiniest trickle escapes. He then walks around the sides and pokes several more holes into the weird anomaly. He steps back on the bubble like he’s standing on a waterbed, but still barely any water comes out. While atop the lawn bubble, Callender stabs it several more times in one spot until finally it bursts.
Take a look at the video below. It’s pretty satisfying watching it finally spring a big leak. Have you ever seen anything like this before? SHARE the Callender’s fun family video with your friends!
Now … where’s that bubble wrap?
