After devastating flooding hit the Carolinas, local residents of Carolina Beach, NC decided to make lemonade with the lemons life handed them.

A video posted by Facebook user David Schifter shows a local fishing duo making the most out of the town’s flooded streets by fishing in parking lots. Using nothing but bare hands and a fishing line, Carolina Beach residents have been able to hook multiple fish in the newly established ponds.

According to Fox 8 News, the storms that hit the Carolinas resulted in some of the worst flooding the state had seem in years. In addition to flooded parking lots, football fields were turned into pools, cars were abandoned underwater, and caskets rose from their graves.

In a state currently recovering from disaster, it’s heartwarming to see people making the most out of the situation life handed them.
