      My theory is that everytime there is a massive storm, there are more properties that take on water.  My first experience of this was down in East Texas where I saw a lot of properties had water laying in their yards.  It would be hard to conceive that those home owners built their homes on lots with standing water. 
      Recently, I read a deed for an old property, South of Liberty, Texas, that described the property as "prairie."  That prairie is now swamp.
      And finally, I just had lunch with another landman who spent a lot of time and a ton of money leasing property around a dump.  The only problem was that once it was all leased, there was no way to get into it, because the road into it had gone permanently under water.
