    I can’t recall anything like that happening around the school going back sixty something years. However, in the 1940s when it rained everything flooded. Kids loved it. The infrastructure work done in the 1990s was a smart move by the city and probably prevents like events. I assume HISD will fix the problem. At least West U doesn’t get sinkholes.

    I took my canoe out there. The fishing was poor.

    Can;t blame this one on the drainage system, I wonder why there was so much water in Poor Farm Ditch.

    It was one of the highlights while we were making cars for the pinewood derby
