I feel really bad for Houston

We survived the eye of Harvey. It is was a blessing for us that it was slow moving as it weakened to a Cat 2 by the time the eye wall passed over our place early Saturday morning. We had more damage when the wind blew from the opposite direction after the eye passed by. It was weird to see all of the birds and seagulls stuck in the eye. We live just southwest of Victoria about 45 miles from the coast. Now the slow movement is a curse for Houston. I am glad I built the house the way that I did. The house was complete in 2001 and it has experienced two hurricane eye walls. We lucked out, I would not want to experience the Cat 4 winds that Rockport experienced. I hope this is the last one for a while. I expect to be without power for another week or two. I have a generator and my family is staying with us to have a some air conditioning and hot showers. Now it is Houston that is suffering.
