Tall, leaves feel succulent and resemble gladiolus or iris somewhat. Very thick roots.

Perhaps one of the invasive irises? Iris ochroleuca?

In any event, if you don't want it, get rid of it before it takes over.

Cattail? It looks like it is growing in a ditch, and the bottom appears to show a round "stem" where the flat leaves come out of. Are the leaves white inside and are spongy?

Yes, they are spongy. I do think it is a cattail. Kind of strange since the nearest one is about 1/4 mile away.
