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.

Sounds like you found something fun to do in a really bad situation. Reading it makes you almost feel like you were there.
