40 - Postdiluvian

Week 40 - Monday 10/2 to Sunday 10/8

Sunshine and blue skies returned to Houston after Harvey moved on but over a month later, the effects linger on. While visiting my son, I saw some of the impact that the disastrous flooding from the 50 inches of rain that Hurricane Harvey dropped on Houston. Well over 100,000 homeowners had to replace drywall, furniture and submerged cars and that made for big news stories. Under-reported infrastructure damage like losing a go-to grocery store and having to find a new one and learn the layout or finding a favorite restaurant was too damaged to reopen affected almost everyone. You can insure for the big things, but not the little ones that sneak up on you.
