I read this article in National Geographic’s August 2005 edition: “In Hot Water,”.

I know meteorologists are not of one mind, there are lots of differing opinions out there. But this person’s perspective is pretty sobering, coming off the 5 Florida hurricanes of the 2004 season and now Katrina. According to the author, we are in a 30-40 year cycle of savage storms like we have seen.

And guess what? There is very little we can do about it. Will we rebuild New Orleans? I don’t know. Should we? Perhaps not.

I have just learned we have evacuees from the New Orleans Superdome arriving here in Lubbock, to stay at what is now Reese Center— and was Reese AFB. We were just out there last weekend, looking at the old officer’s quarters where I used to live when I was on active duty assigned there. Looking at those facilities, I was wondering (with a bit of sadness) if they would ever be used again.

Glad we have resources to help, all the way inland here in Lubbock, Texas. Now we’ll see the people of West Texas extend many helping hands to those who have suffered at the hands of mother nature. I hope!
