¡Hasta siempre, Houston!🙏🏼 Hoy me despido de ustedes con sentimientos encontrados. Ha sido un privilegio para mí informarles por los pasados 3 años, desde días de tormentas, inundaciones y heladas, hasta cuando el buen tiempo nos sonreía. Gracias por el cariño; los llevo en el ❤️ pic.twitter.com/QRtOoChqKA— Janet Bolívar (@Janetbolivartv) April 7, 2022
