Huracán Harvey

Well, we here in Dallas appear to have survived Hurricane Harvey okay but the good people of Houston were not that lucky. My prayers go out to all the people down there who having to struggle with floods and power outages and worse. Hurricane Harvey may not have been as big a storm as Hurricane Katrina but it was big enough.
