MY family is safe. MY home is dry. MY neighborhood is already cleaning up.
There are SO many people whose families are not okay, whose homes are underwater, who have no idea what is next for them.
The storm hit on Friday, made landfall about a 2 hour drive southeast of Houston, took a LONG time to come inland, just swirling and raining. The thing with this storm is how SLOW it has been – making landfall at 8 mph, turning east at 7 mph, stalling over Houston, and finally moving out at 2 mph. #goawayHarvey
