Mama kept on cleaning the little ones and passing out water bottles, making everyone drink them, even if they weren't thirsty. Sealy and Armani were trying to comfort crying Memaw. Armani was hand hugging Memaw, while Sealy was reading at her feet.
The sky had an orangey-pink look to it. It was beautiful. Armani was wrapped in her daddys arms and was staring at the sky with her mouth open. "Mama, it's so beautiful. Come see." After Armani said that Georgie and Sealy ran over to the door and both said, "Whoa...."
When Georgie screamed at the top of his lungs, Daddy took off running toward him. Everyone else followed behind. Daddy asked out of breath, "What is it son?" Georgie just stood there and pointed. The levees had broken and water was rushing, crashing their way. "Get inside!" Daddy screamed. Everyone immediately took off running back into the house.
