Sanitation Workers Shoot Hoops During Tropical Storm Elsa

Two sanitation workers in Stratford, Connecticut, made the best of their July 9 morning shift by playing some basketball during the deluge brought by Tropical Storm Elsa.

The pair of garbagemen weren’t deterred by the downpour, as the storm brought 3.56 inches of rain to the area, according to a local news report.

Sara Stanhewicz, who took this video, said the workers “were having a great time dancing and playing basketball all down our street in the heavy rain.”
