Several parts of South Africa, including KwaZulu-Natal, have been receiving a lot of rain since last week. And, according to News24, KZN is expected to receive even more thunderstorms and flooding in the coming days this week.

However, one unidentified man has gone viral on social media for all the right reasons. Instead of hiding in his home, the man took advantage of the floods in his backyard.

A photo, which was posted on Facebook by Luyanda Tsikedi, shows the man rowing a canoe in his flooded yard.

Tsikedi captioned the photo:

"Only in SA will you see such positivity. With all the heavy rains we're experiencing in KZN instead of feeling sad and blue this is what we do. This Oom lives in Umkomaas just south of Durban, he just took out his boat and started rowing across his back yard, this made my day."
