The next night , after the hurricane we had a rain storm. The water had no place to go because there was a storm surge in galveston and though they are 60 miles away the water pushed up into our bayous, we are after all the bayou city. Then when it rained, well the water had no place to go. I sweated it as the water got closer and closer to our home. Here is my husband and dog, Sam, and my street. Many neighbors already had some debris on their front lawns awaiting pick up. That compounded the problem as it blocked the drainage ditches.
