The Hurricane by Leann Harris

My mother just moved from Houston to the northern part of the state of Texas.  But she went through a lot of hurricanes.  When the authorities say get ready, they mean it.  9 times out of 10, the hurricane missed Houston, but it is the 10th time that makes the difference.

Streets are flooded.  No power, no way to keep anything cold.   A couple of years ago, I think it was Hurricane "Ike", where they put all the the lanes of I-45 going north.  Mom didn't make it out of Houston, but my brother was a trooper and stood in line hours to get ice for them.

Pray for the folks on the East Coast.
