What’s Mother Earth Up to?
The mind boggles with recent disasters. Hurricane Harvey drenching parts of Texas, Irma not to be outdone in the Caribbean and Florida. Fires in California. Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana. At least two beautiful natural areas, Yosemite in California, and the gorge containing Multinomah Falls in Oregon, and an 8.0 earthquake in the ocean near Mexico and Guatemala with a threat of tsunami. The only thing left is a volcanic eruption.
Houston is probably not alone in its construction of a concrete floor allowing water no place to go but into buildings. An area, which Hurricane Andrew hit over 20 years ago has been populated with domino-arranged high rise buildings. The potential for damage and loss of life much worse.
I wonder if our divided country is up to the challenge of long term planning.
On the lighter side, did you know?
