I live in beautiful, historic downtown Humble, on Granberry. I went through Hurricane Alicia in '83 in Atascocita, but have also been through tsunamis, earthquakes, tidal waves, drought, pests, blizzards, snowstorms, ice storms, floods, typhoons, monsoon, hurricanes. I even lived in a foreign country during the Bay of Pigs and had to carry a suitcase to elementary school with me in case we were evacuated to the Phillipines. With that behind me, I wish to commend the City of Humble. By 8 am on Saturday, in the presence of high gusts of wind and rain, they were clearing Granberry to make a pathway for the citizens of Humble to be able to navigate. All other main streets in the city were un navigable and Granberry became Main Street for at least a day. With the exception of one neighbor, who left their property as it stood, complete with potted plants and bbq equipment to become missiles for the rest of us, we looked out after each other. By 2 pm on Saturday, we knew how many of our neighbors were, who was in trouble, and what kind of damage we had sustained. I grew up military, and I have literally lived all over the world, and I chose Humble to be my hometown, and am very proud to have made such an excellent decision. In fact, I'm so proud of it, my 05 Mini Cooper sports personalized plates that say HMBL TX. Here's some of my pictures.
