Problem Solved

Although the federal government's hurricane office often rates the power or category of a hurricane as a major hurricane, if you look at the top wind-speeds recorded in the area, the actual wind speed is generally much smaller. Anyway, Category 2 (minor) Hurricane Harvey is coming ashore in Texas. They may count this as a major hurricane but I doubt it deserves such a rating.

On the up side, here is the drought index the federal government keeps track of. Some abnormal dryness in south Texas is about to be ended. That's a good thing.

Hope everyone keeps safe in the storm.


Welllll, Harvey is now upgraded to Cat. 4.
I know and given the amount of flooding in Houston and environs, my post seems pretty heartless now.
