Given Enough Time
Procrastination...how long should you wait before you evacuate your house because a huge hurricaine is headed your way? Since reading the news from Corpus to Galveston people are being evacuated and actually some are residing here in the Valley. This is the first time that I can remember that people are being evacuated since I have been in Texas. I don't know if that is a good thing or not because action is barely being enforced or because the severity of the weather has been at its most severe. How organized is it for people to leave their belongings and take the bare necessities to travel to an unknown place or be fortunate enough to stay with family. Due to the most noteable amount of hurricaines hitting out of the Gulf of Mexico in a while you wonder what kind of factors have been affecting that outcome. Global warming is a given (or at least for those who believe it is happening). The pollution from the East is affecting the air and adding particle by particle to the weight of wind and thereby contributing to the direction. Fog and smog formed becomes thicker or it seems like that. I wonder if the government has some type of "weapon" that they could use against a hurricaine. Just blow it out of the way. For sure that would be powerful and then it could be used for other things. But of course would they actually be interested in saving people like that. It would save a lot of money from rebuilding the infrastructure.
