Thank you. It has been a truly incredible event. We are used to the occasional hurricane, and are prepared to deal with them, but this storm has been an entirely different matter. I am far enough inland to have had only a modest amount of rain. My best friend lives on the northwest side of Houston and got roughly four feet of rain. He got lucky, as his neighborhood drained well and became an island, and he had enough food on hand to feed his family. He has a lot of friends and co-workers nearby that weren't so lucky, and had to be evacuated by boat and by helicopter. It will likely be many months before their homes are inhabitable again. We will be dealing with the aftermath for a long time to come.
I know we have other members here from that area, and I wish them well.
I have a sister in Houston, she was flooded from the one before but water just up to the gutters on the road this time.
