I am happy to report that my parents house was spared, water made it all the way to the foundation and stopped. Another point of anxiety was we have a cattle ranch in Manvel, TX. with 150 head of cattle, and the pastures were under 4 feet of water. Yesterday we couldn't find any of the cattle, today miraculously we found all of them. They somehow survived.
And saying all this, I know there are hundreds of thousands who got it far worse than we did and there is tremendous pain for houston, texas and louisiana and beyond.
My theater is doing a fund raiser here in Portland at our next show, and likewise, people I know here are collecting money and items to send.
See we Left-Coasters ain't so bad.
