Saturday, We drove 4 hours south to Dallas, then 3 hours west to "look" at a car...
The storm just outside of Dallas had 4 lanes slowed down to 15 mph for 20 miles! We couldn't get to the shoulder, and if we did... I'd worry about getting slammed into from the back. Couldn't see !

Son sold his truck on Craigslist Memorial Day (Monday evening) after 3 EF-2 tornadoes his our little town of 6300. We've got local lakes that haven't flooded in last 100 years, cresting at 33 feet above flood stage!

Took me less than a week to figure out I wasn't going to be hauling his butt to practices twice a day

The whole drive through Texas, I was wondering about this car being flood damaged while we were on our way!

It was one of those "can't pass it up" deals...

I've seen bids go that high for beat up cop cars.

My mistake. I thought you were talking about "a photo posted of school buses parked in Texas half under water" not a poor school bus driver waiting at a red light when a wall of water pushed her bus into a ditch. Please accept my apology.

There was a photo. But I have no idea if media borrowed it from Sandy or Katrina to fill in their story. Given that buying a 10-20 year old bus is usually buyer beware, and state of disaster, who knows if opportunity to replace buses might put some buses on auction block that only had wet tires.
but, seats could be waterlogged, too.
