"There's something you don't see every day", which is quite the response to something you could never imagine seeing in Amarillo.

First of all, we never thought we would see so much rain that it would fill all the area lakes, and flood the streets, and playas.   However, it has, and the rain just continues to keep coming.

I have heard many people, all those years we prayed for rain.  Now it's raining for every year that we didn't get enough rainfall.  Don't say God doesn't answer prayer.  It may take a while and it may all come at once, but God answered.

However, I digress.  Here is something that doesn't happen in Amarillo.  It seems to be a once-in-a-lifetime occurrence (or will occur again when the rains come down and the floods come up).

We have fish in the streets!

Fish just swimming along having a grand old time, just cruising down the gutters of Georgia Street.

This is just crazy.  Forget the pole, All you had to do to catch a fish with your hands.

The crazy things that we can now say we've seen in our lifetime, are fish just swimming down Georgia Street in Amarillo.

I just hope those fine fish were able to get back to the lake or the playa they were calling home, and not the sewer drain.

However, they will probably end up in the storm drain and five years from now, someone is going to have to go down into the sewer to fix something and get attacked by a 50lb mutant fish.

You know it will happen.  I mean we just saw fish swimming down Georgia St.

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
