Re: How About That Wind Storm?
I live just to the east of Houston and just want to say that was one wild ride. I am sure everyone has seen the pictures of the devastation on television, internet or somewhere so I won't ramble on and on. Suffice it to say that I would not wish that on anyone. My house suffered minimal damage. Several large tree branches fell, but luckily none on my house. Many of my neighbors were not so lucky. Since my work has been without power most of the days are filled with clearing debris from people's yards,houses,cars etc. Still no power in my particular neighborhood. But Houston has caught a break with the cool front that came through right after Ike. And to think we were the lucky ones around here. The damage to Galveston and many other coastal communities is unimaginable. I am on a laptop and have to sign off now. Just wanted to say a big thank you to the many parts of the country that have sent ice, water, volunteers and everything else. It's gonna take some time to get back to sense of normalcy, but I can say that everyone down here appreciates the help that has been sent our way.
