Tweet of the Day, An Interesting Houston Flooding Slideshow edition.

As noted in the responses to said slideshow, a lot of the houses on the inside are likely absolute messes that will need to be be gutted.  All in all, though, this storm could have been worse. A lot worse.  Things can be replaced; people, less easily.

Harvey promising to be first major hurricane to hit US in over a decade.

It’s going to hit Texas as a Category 3.  If I am reading the map correctly, Galveston is more or less in the middle of the the projected storm path, which suggests that you get out of coastal Texas generally, and give serious consideration to never actually living in Galveston.  It’s like the danged storms aim for the place.  Heck, for all I know, the geography of the Gulf of Mexico demands that they do.  …Which suggests that maybe people shouldn’t actually try to live there, because the place gets smacked by Mother Nature on a remarkably regular basis.

Seriously, though, if you’re affected by this, stop reading my blog and go somewhere safer.
