Transcript Rain Rain Go Away Come again some other day! Are you dried out yet? Those of you who attended "Lake UH" during April, and didn't float away, were lucky. Most of the roadways were flooded or blocked by stalled cars, students found it hard to get home. Some gave up ana decided to wait the rain out, and these students made the most of a bad situation. " A couple of Jet Skiis sounds good right now, " said Elsa Silva, a sophomore interior design major who waited in the music building for the rain to stop. The National Weather Service said the area around UH received between 6.57 and 4.53 inches of rainfall. Four architecture students applied their craft to the predicament and Getting around campus was quite a task for university vehicles, because most of the sidewalks going through the university were flooded. Photo by Jason ? turned a styroform bulletin board into a two-person boat. Flooding roads that boardered lot 16A took its toll on many cars. Some resorted to driving on submerged sidewalks, while others parked on the lawns between the music and architecture buildings. A group of architecture students and members of the UH band spent the afternoon counting the number of cars succumbed to the water. Mike Jones, a junior business major and member of the band, said, "We've counted 25 stalls (cars) since one o'clock." Drama senior Mike Lewis, another band member, said he and the other band members rang the spirit bell every time a car stalled. The architecture students were betting on the success of cars attempting to pass. When a car stalls, architecture senior Robert Munalo, said, "If it's a girl, we help her. If it's a guy, we don't.' Not everyone took the rain so light-heartedly and even faculty couldn't evade the ubiquitous torrents. The interior of geology Rrofessor Burt King's '75 lerecedes was flooded when he stalled at the intersection in front of the architecture building as did many other cars' interiors. "I think it's insured. My wife usually takes care of that, but it should be OK," said King. -Michael D. Oeser A s the rain began to come down -^harder, this student patiently waits for the bus to take him to his warm, dry house. HOUSTONIAN photo. As students looked for another mode of transportation during the flooding, these four architecture students constructed a boat out of styro-form, in order to make their journey across campus a little more interesting.
