HARVEY, HARVEY, GO AWAY…

At the end of August, when Jill and I boarded our plane to Oahu for a weeklong cruise of the Hawaiian islands, Hurricane Harvey was just a blip off the Coast of West Africa. By the time we were ending the final leg of our trip, Harvey had turned into a real monster, dumping between 40 and 50 inches of rain on the Greater Houston area …
