Glen Campbell, Galveston and Hurricane Harvey

I can't help thinking how synchronistically bizarre it is that
Glen Campbell passes away the same month that Hurricane Harvey is about to hit the city Glen had a hit with.

And on the label of the 45 it was released on (in Australia anyway) there looks to be a Yin/Yang type image of two waves...or maybe an overhead shot of a hurricane?
My last post was about Glen's passing and Jimmy Webb's songs and the synchronicites surrounding my own father's passing from Alzheimer's disease in September last year -
Hurricane Harvey reminds me of a cyclone I wrote about named Oswald that hit Australia years ago- 
Harvey, Oswald, Australia Day and Rabbits
although with most of the You Tubes now missing from that post it won't make as much sense as it did when I wrote it.

I saw Jimmy Webb play the Brisbane Powerhouse earlier this year, but I can't remember if he sung 'Galverston' or not, although I think he might have -

My view of Jimmy Webb's Brisbane show at the Powerhouse 
"Do you see the rabbit, too?"
Life is truly one bizarre and sometimes dark rabbit (w)hole, I think. 
Let's hope Hurricane Harvey is nothing but a storm in a tea cup that passes by with minimal damage.
I was listening to an old 'Radio8Ball' show where Jimmy Webb was the guest and in hindsight now with Glen Campbell passing away on the 8th of August this year makes it all the more weirder.
8/8/17 (8/8/1+7 =8)
Glen also had 8 children if you still haven't had enough 8s;-)
August 2017 was also the 40th anniversary of the passing of Elvis and it was also the month of Jimmy Webb's 71st (7+1=8) birthday, too.
Life seems to have more questions than answers, but no lack of synchronicities it seems.
Oddly enough, Glenn recorded that song 'I'm Not Gonna Miss You' in the above You Tube in January, 2013, which was the month Cyclone Oswald hit Australia.

UPDATE: August 27, 2017 (Australian time)
Cruises could be kept out of Galveston until Tuesday due to hurricane
""We have about 20,000 people on four cruise ships that are trying to enter the port," said Roger Quiroga, director of economic development and external relations for the Port of Galveston. "We're going to try to wait for the first opportunity, probably around Tuesday, to get them in."
Weather conditions forced the port to close to all traffic Friday, said Peter Simons, interim director for the Port of Galveston.
Port officials expected gale force winds within 12 hours of the decision.
Port and cruise officials said they would get the ships into port as soon as weather allowed, which could be sooner than Tuesday.
“Depending on the weather, we may be able to bring some ships in on Sunday,” Simons said.
Carnival Cruise Lines officials said their Freedom and Valor ships both were at sea a safe distance away from the storm.
Both ships would make stops in New Orleans to refuel and resupply and guests would be allow to leave, but would be encouraged to stay aboard and return to Galveston, officials said.
