We're all okay here.

Soggy and going to get soggier, but on high ground and not in danger of being flooded out.

I've had a number of emails from folks overseas, which is why I'm posting this.

The area of flooding is HUGE--as in, it would take the better part of a day (nine hours) to drive around the perimeter--but conditions vary widely. The majority of downtown Houston is toast, as are smaller towns northwest of it. A number of riverside towns in Central Texas are preparing for the worst as Harvey stalls out and rotates over us.

But again, we're all fine here.

If you have five bucks or two Euros or three Kroner, please consider donating to the Red Cross. If you don't have it now, you can donate in six weeks or six months and it'll do just as much good. The estimate for cleanup in the Houston area is somewhere in the neighborhood of 2+ YEARS at this point--and we're not even halfway through the rain event.

Thanks for caring, y'all. We'll get through this, even if we do it on a rubber raft shaped like a huge duck.
