I'm a poster of a different name but felt that I would out my location if I were to post this in the voice I intended.
I thought about how JS would boast if he lived in Houston and did not have damage from the floods. I live in Houston and survived without any issues.
"Hear the voice of God's servent who has withstood the trials of this this great storm. Harken ye inhabitants of Houston, for I, even Joseph Smith, have overcome the afflictions of nature wrought upon this land for a purpose mightier that even what the Lord Omnipotent hath supposed. For is it not true that even the righteousness of the Saints cannot withhold the waters that have entered and defiled the House of The Lord this day? Cannot we suppose that the faithfulness of the Saints, strong though it is, as manifest in tithes and offerings, has not caused the waters to respect that Holiest of Place? I make mention of this and share the news that I, a single servent of the Most High, has weathered the elements and remain triumphant at its end because of my righteousness. Do you not suppose that if the Lord can flood his Temple and not flood my home that my righteousness surpasses that of 12 stakes of Zion? Yea, maybe even 1000 Stakes of Zion? For I know it. If Jesus Christ, the Great Creator, cannot see fit to spare his House, yet is not able submerge mine, how great a power is it that ye suppose I possess? I have said before that Jesus could not keep a church together such as I, and now I must tell you that he cannot maintain his House with as much righteousness as I. I say this not to boast, but to show you the power that God Almighty has entrusted unto me, to be his Stewart of tithing checks and almost 15 year-old young ladies. Even So....Amen."

I hope I've channeled JS as well as possible.
