You would think that whoever thought up Snow Shovel Racing was either out of a sled when it came time to take the kids sledding, or has the sense of humor of someone that always has a good time, no matter the weather. However, the beginnings of snow shovel racing had more to do with convenience than anything else.
Competitive shovel racing was born in New Mexico's ski resorts during the 1970s, where ski resort workers used snow shovels to get around more easily. By 1997, snow shovel racing was featured in the winter X games. It was almost banned when a shovel racer was seriously injured that year. The resort that hosted the largest annual competition dropped the event in 2005 due to liability. Since modified sleds were banned, the races resumed.
Today, Angel Fire Resort in Angel Fire, New Mexico is the most well known venue for snow shovel racing where a wide age range of competitors take to the slopes, from students to retirees. Thanks to Wikipedia for sharing a overview of this wild snow adventure! Visit more at Wikipedia:

Well it seems that this water disappearance hasn’t found an end now. On August 13, 2017, the same phenomenon was observed in the city of Caraguatatuba, Brazil:

Many are running for their life, as others are filming this with confusion. I have also read that the ocean is heating up and this may happen often and not sure if we will every understand this mysterious or disaster?
I looked over many articles and did not hear anything about fish or other animals being affected by the ocean residing. Read More:

The Environmental Protection Agency has given notice to scientists protecting dynamic strategies that were dedicated to help save the climate downfalls. The Fact is all has stopped and will not be renewed to have roles in advising the agency, but rather will continue the scientific shake up resulting in resignations by many researchers over how the administration is politicizing this EPA agency.
