From Gloria Rubac in Houston, Texas:

Took photos this afternoon around 4:00 from the Hogan bridge over I-45 just North of downtown and a couple of I-10 at Shepherd.

Didn’t think anything worse than Hurricane Allison would happen in my lifetime. My heart is breaking watching the physical and mental suffering people are dealing with.

Capitalist planning doesn’t include people’s needs. They can plan all their fucking wars but can’t plan for natural disasters.

SMASH THIS DAMNED SYSTEM‼️

Hurricane Gloria

When Hurricane Gloria touched down in Long Island in 1985, I was focused on something completely different (although not unsurprisingly): baseball.

I was 7 years old and was supposed to see the Yanks take on the Tigers at the Stadium on that September day. It was the only thing I could think of - all throughout the school day, I kept saying I was going to tonight’s Yankees game, completely oblivious to the weather circling outside. 

The game plan was to meet my dad - he came home early from work that day - and head up to the Bronx. I was with my mom at the local A&P and, in this age before cell phones, somehow, my dad met up with us in the store. He told me the game was postponed due to Gloria and I was heartbroken.

We returned home and I all I could do from not crying was to sit on the living room couch and watch the wind violently blow the trees. I was like a little sad puppy looking out into the world outside. With the rain coming down and the wind whipping, I saw something moving from down the block. The street was isolated, save for the leaves that whirled in the hurricane’s path, yet I saw a person coming toward me.

It was Moshe, a friend’s father who, what years later would be called an extreme athlete, was running outside during a hurricane. It was the most bizarre, yet serene thing I saw: a man fighting nature just to get his run in.

The things we remember, right? Hurricanes in New York in the 1980s.
