“I was the crazy guy. Everybody was kinda going by, laughing at me…”

Everyone thought Randy Wagner was crazy when he started to build a aquadam around his home in Rosharon, Texas. That is the place that has been hit with the latest floods in Texas.

Wagner says God guided his hand to build an aquadam. Neighbors made fun of him and laughed as he purchased a 400-ft, 30″ tall dam to put around his home. He installed it just before the record-breaking rains came in.

He spent $8,300 in all, but that pales in comparison to what he would have lost in damages. The waters rose to an astounding 27″ and completely surrounded his home, but it never seeped through the barriers.
