While bone-dry Californians are resorting to spray-painting their parched lawns green, one yard in Alabama had too much water, resulting in an odd "sod-surfing" video.

As the Guardian reported, a grass painting company -- Green Canary -- is profiting from California's drought. The company says that they've seen a rise in business as the statewide severe drought continues, as homeowners and businesses choose to let lawns die off and have them painted to look green.

As of Thursday's U.S. Drought Monitor, the entire state of California is in a drought, with over one-third in exceptional drought, the worst category.

Meanwhile, it's been quite soggy in the Southeast this year, with spots such as Pensacola picking up more than five feet of rain this year.

While it hasn't been nearly as wet in northern Alabama, enough rain fell last week to turn this lawn into something that resembles a waterbed, as seen on this video.
