harvey havoc

The #reality of #Harvey. I have a very dear friend who literally just bought herself a house outside of Houston Texas after moving there a couple of years ago.

Emphasis is on just moved in. She was evacuated last night. We had hoped because she lives in a place that’s higher than most spots that she would be OK. She reminded me yesterday via text that a lot of people forget around Houston is a lot of bayou.

Above is what appeared on her Facebook feed last night. Her name and face are blocked out to protect her privacy but I wanted people to see what this was all about – this is no joke.

She has a son who live near NASA who was evacuated yesterday, and I have two other friends in the path of the storm. I don’t know if they are still sheltering in place or have been evacuated — they are actually Chester County PA transplants.

The other two photos are from my friend in Houston who is more in the thick of it in the city.

So while our president tweets BIG words, this is where this country actually needs him to BE presidential- not just tweet as the president.

Prayers for all in the path of the storm, including first responders. If my friends in Texas send me more updates and or photos, I will post them.
