Following Hurricane Harvey’s landfall on Friday, Aug. 25, Southeast Texas faced unprecedented rainfall levels. While the Houston area saw an average of 43 inches of rain, an average of 54 inches fell on the Golden Triangle, with the majority falling on Port Arthur and Orange, as noted by the National Weather Service.

Typically, the subjects of my columns are born out of activities that have required a great deal of my time throughout the month. However, this month I had been back in the office exactly a day and a half after a two-week vacation when it was time to write. So without the benefit of my typical strategy, I had a friend recommend that I write on observations from my travels to Europe in July, which I think is apropos.
