I live in Sugar
Land just outside of Houston, in the projected path of Tropical Storm Edouard. Yesterday as I'm half listening to the local weather report, Mayor White of Houston came on to give precautions about the upcoming storm and how to prepare. The only sentence that really caught my attention and sent chills down my spine was,
"And the federal government is willing to step in,if need be."
I was scared but not by the storm, which fizzeled out. But my garden got a good watering.
