    Well, I'm sure Houstonians can take comfort in that Trump held a big great awesome rally yesterday and praised himself. He congratulated the crowd's size and told them how awesome their president was for showing up. Very reassuring, right?

    Yeah, they might be dropping in some areas, but rising in others, as they control dams and spillways to lessen the impact in Houston metro. I grew up there and have family there. It's so expansive, most people can't imagine. In Utah terms, the area encompasses Price to Logan and Wendover to Park City, with 5 times the amount of people. While some areas are abating, others will not see water receding until October, as upstream releases will impact them for 6 weeks. Imagine living in your house and entire neighborhood with 5 feet of water until October. This is the worst natural disaster in US history. Prepare for high gas prices for at least a year. The bright spot is that, unlike New Orleans, Houston is the energy supplier to our country and essential to us all, thus ensuring all hands on deck, and funding, until they can restore infrastructure.
