As most of you surely know, my hometown of Houston, as well as the greater area of Southeast Texas were devastated by Hurricane Harvey over the weekend. Thankfully, we are okay and so is our family. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has called, texted, and left messages to check in on us. We sustained a little bit of damage in my office thanks to a small leak in a window, but otherwise, we have been lucky. Thanks to heavy overnight rain, we have woken up to our street under water, but are so grateful that it has not reached our house. Unfortunately, many people have lost everything in the catastrophic flooding which has surpassed any of the other terrible floods Houston has endured in the past several years. It is heartbreaking to see the devastation across our city and of course, further south in Corpus Christi and Rockport where the eye of the hurricane originally hit. However, it has warmed my heart to see people coming together to help their neighbors in need. Forecasts predict continual, heavy rain for the next few days, bringing an additional 15-30 inches of rain that our city just cannot handle. Please keep Houston and Southeast Texas in your thoughts and prayers. If you are so inclined, please consider making a donation to the Red Cross to help those in urgent need as a result of Hurricane Harvey. Here is a list of other charities that are providing aide to Houston and Southeast Texas as well.
