Like many of you, I watched the scenes out of Houston and the rest of eastern Texas play out in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. It reminded me a lot of Katrina and New Orleans more than a decade ago.
Back then, it was clear that government wasn’t grasping the urgency and distress going on in New Orleans that week. It’s too early to gauge how aware President Trump is faring, and whether or not history repeats, as it sadly often does.
I live in the Tampa Bay part of Florida, and in my life we’ve been lucky we haven’t gotten a big storm of Harvey’s kind of wrath. One day that luck will end, whether that happens in a week or in a century is the unanswered question. Prepare for the worst, and hope for the best.
