Any Word About Ubu?

While people are preparing for the probable calamity that is Irma, it should be noted that one of those affected by the Harvey disaster has dropped off the radar. Though he rode out the storm and its initial aftermath well, the last we heard of Ubu, he was glad he didn't live in Beaumont. That was a week ago. Shortly after that, there was a report that parts of Houston were forcibly evacuated due to a dam breach. Shortly before that, news reports and Ubu's own blog indicated that he was at risk from fire ant's, chemical leaks, telemarketers, and alligators.


Has anyone heard anything?

1 Ugh, telemarketers.

2 Perhaps he exercised the "Bun-Bun protocol" on said telemarketers, and is now in hiding.  We can hope.  More likely, he just lacks internet.

No problems, I just crawled back under my rock.  

Not a dam breach, but it was an overtopping.  In the 1940's, two emergency reservoirs were built to prevent events like Harvey from wiping out downtown.  They're normally empty; only filling during heavy rain events.  It's going to be another week or two before they fully drain; some residents in west Houston still can't get back into their homes.
