It's difficult to imagine the terrible dry spell and sticky heat that last summer wrought when we're surrounded by buckets of water and confronted with a forecast indicating rain (and temps in the 80s) for days still.
This afternoon, the elbow of Buffalo Bayou that passes directly behind CultureMap's office and runs by the University of Houston-Downtown, is overflowing its banks, inching up the pedestrian pathways, creating whirlpools and whitecaps as it courses beneath bridges and around bends.
We're thinking of it as our little muddied river — not quite as scenic as a glacier-fed whitewater mecca, but surely just as perilous.
Have you seen other stretches of the bayou (or any ol' drainage ditch) that are threatening to overflow with all of this rainfall? Or spotted any daring souls rafting along the waterway?
