A Flooded Streets Survival Limerick

Houston Texas is 50 feet above sea level and it doesn’t take too long for steady downpour to turn a lazy creek into a raging river. And the bayou drainage system is a flood waiting to happen. The surface roads here become lakes fast. This morning after the water went down I traveled into town and was amazed at how many cars were strewn in every direction all over the sides of the roads. Could that many people actually believe that their automobiles are amphibious? I’m thinking it has more to do with a combo of wrong place wrong time and just plain stupid. And it led to this.

Rain and flooding can be very scary.
And driving in it is hairy.
Stay home and stay dry
When the water is high
And your best transportation option’s a ferry!
