VIDEO: Man makes the best of Harvey-flooded home with roller rink


A Houston teacher is trying to make the most of a bad situation. Scot Pankey’s house was flooded by Harvey. Like many people in the area, he is still struggling to get his house fixed. But he’s trying to stay positive by sharing a video on Facebook of him skating his groove thing.

Pankey tells KXAN News there is a wait list to get crews working on his house because of the high demand. So, instead of feeling down and angry, he says he is thankful he still has a roof over his head, and he’s making use of the extra space to roller skate and dance.

He hopes he can inspire people with his video. One of the hashtags in his Facebook post is #liveinthemoment.
