Reporting to you for England

I got off the phone with father-in-law Trainwreck. Over in the UK they're not exactly sure how widespread the Katy damage is. I told him the physical damage was probably as large or larger than the entire UK. The death toll isn't what it was guestimated to be, but we won't know for a while.

Their take on it is that the state and local govt' fell on it's @ss and FEMA is doing what it's normally done. They can't understand why we're not putting as much resources into recovering bodies as we are saving lives, though. I told him it's a matter of priorities, save the living first- then worry about the dead.

Even our government is kinda stretched thin because of the size of the problem. He tries to understand, and even though he's been here still has trouble realizing just how BIG America is.
