Buckets...

it rained; rather it poured!
 
sheets and buckets of water
 
fell in just a few hours;
 
our street became a river!
 
got a text from city hall
 
shelter in place, they said
 
roads flooded, school’s out
 
no work, just stay in bed!
 
no way! grinning ear to ear
 
we rushed out with a canoe
 
and up and down our street
 
we paddled till after two!

On April 18, 2016 17-inches of rain fell in Houston within 24 hours. That's one-third of Houston's average annual rainfall. Several areas were flooded and major thoroughfares were closed. But even during nature's violent events, we can still find something good and enjoyable.
