President Joe Biden on Sunday celebrated national ice cream day by posting an image of himself grabbing a large cone and posing for a selfie.

The president posted the picture on Twitter with the caption "Happy National Ice Cream Day, folks."

Biden has made it clear that he is a fan of the sweet treat, joking during a speech in 2016 at Jeni’s Ice Cream factory about how much he consumes.

"My name is Joe Biden and I love ice cream," the then-vice president said as he kicked off his remarks. "You all think I’m kidding – I’m not."

Cornell University developed a Joe Biden flavor in 2017 when he gave the convocation address at the school, called "Big Red, White & Biden." The flavor was vanilla with chunks of chocolate, which is said to be the president’s favorite.

The Quaboag River emptied out into Route 20 in Palmer, so the road closed, but not until two vehicles got stuck.

Unfortunately this is what can happen when you try to drive through flooded roadways. The two cars were submerged in water that's several inches deep.

Mike said, "With those rainboots you have no problems, walking through water."Jessica Allen replied, "As you can see we call it DIY, get it done baby."

Once the ground is saturated with water, extra rain has a harder time being absorbed into the ground since there is no where for it to go. This leads to flooding. Rivers and streams are starting to fill up, causing flooding in around these rivers or streams.

Not enough time in the day? That's the stance of 1 in 4 people in a survey of 2,000 Brits who say more exercise would be possible if days were longer. So until we can bend space and time, we can probably forget about working out more.

According to a Tillamook County Creamery Association survey, a dairy co-op, 82% of Americans’ favorite sweet treat is ice cream.
