As someone who lost almost everything in Katrina, I can hardly watch the coverage of hurricane Harvey's horrific destruction in Houston. Brings back far too many painful memories. However, where Houston is different from New Orleans, they have Governor Abbott and President Trump. I see them recovering in far less time, than it took for Louisiana after Katrina. In spite of the fact, Houston's mayor went to the "Ray Nagin School of Hurricane Preparedness."
The water is going down, so the real work will begin. Unfortunately, like in New Orleans, I expect the death count to rise exponentially, with the reseeding water. I firmly believe that every city should have an evacuation plan. After Katrina, that seems like a no brainer. But, of course, you need a mayor that doesn't downplay the threat. Unreal.
President Trump went to Texas yesterday, to offer hope to those impacted by Harvey, and what does the media focus on? Melania's shoes. ((Banging my head on my desk)) Tells me President Trump is doing a fabulous job, when all they have to complain about is Melania's footwear.
Have to laugh on twitter, at those that are blaming climate change. Ridiculous. Hurricanes have been around since the beginning of time. Long before Al Gore invented the climate change scam. It would be easier to buy climate change, if those that preach it, actually lived like they believed it. They don't.
I only wish I still lived closer, so I could do more for those impacted. I've been in their shoes, it's not a good place......
