Houstonians react to 610 water break, boil order with Twitter memes

Houstonians were taken by surprise when a city-owned pipe busted open at Clinton Drive and East Loop 610 Thursday afternoon, flooding the freeway and stranding motorists, prompting school and business closures and a city-wide water boil order.

For long time residents, the sight of massive floodwaters covering a Houston freeway was all too familiar and ironic, considering the pleasant sunny day it had been up until the pipe unexpectedly burst. Houstonians took to Twitter to express their frustrations in the form of hilarious memes and reactions.
