Harvey was a jerk. So many said it (and often with more colorful language) in the moments and months following the storm that caused destruction, loss and stress for so many. Sara Schoenfield Murphy found out her Nottingham Forest home was being destroyed and her family evacuated while she was in the hospital delivering a baby boy. No, she opted not to name her newborn “Harvey” – yes, everyone asked, including me as we were sitting outside her almost-done, remodeled home along with big sister Morgan. (She and Daniel named their son Miles.) They were one of so many families in the Buzz coverage area affected by Harvey. Our annual Back-To-School Issue happens to mark the one-year anniversary of the hurricane. We certainly did not want to honor Harvey; however, we did want to highlight just a few of the families finally seeing the light after a year of hardships. In this issue you will find our traditional school articles, including school-night suppers, as our kids start a fresh year, alongside Harvey-related articles that show the strength, resilience and power of our neighbors.
