“Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.” ~ Langston Hughes
Holy moly. I don’t recall ever seeing so much rain at one time. And I remember Hurricane Alicia in 1983 and with what may be the worst flooding in our area, Tropical Storm Allison (hit twice, back-to-back) in 2001.
I kid you not — our property just witnessed 4-5 inches of rainfall in less than 30 minutes. It literally opened up and let loose on us. The back fence along the creek? Not even visible from inside the house. Just a blinding wall of falling water.
