Although it was hardly the catastrophic event as the fire tornado that occurred in the City of Redding earlier this summer, it was still quite harrowing.


British Columbia firefighter M.C. Schidlowsky posted a scary video to her Instagram page showing a firenado sucking up her teams firehose and melting it.





Michael Gollner with the University of Maryland's Department of Fire Protection Engineering, said:

It's a classic fire whirl. It's very common for smaller whirls to occur in fires. They're more akin to dust devils. There was clearly a lot of momentum to have that much suction and pull. There was quite a bit of weight it was pulling up.

I've never seen a hose sucked up into a fire whirl before.


Folks on Twitter empathized with the firefighters frustration. .





Can't say we really blame the guy. We might throw a rock too is a fire monster stole our hose.





Now why didn't the firefighters think of this?


Just a short while ago this is what we were all asking.


Now it seems to be the norm.


Just a sign of the time we suppose.

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
