First and foremost my thoughts and prayers got out to my fellow Texans affected by Hurricane Ike. I lived in Houston for a few years back in the late 90s and its hard to watch the coverage of Hurricane Ike. I have made many visits to Galveston and it pains me to see what has happened to the Island as well as Houston. I see places where I have been or driven past during my time down in that part of Texas. Even though I do no longer live in that part of Texas, my heart goes out to those who live there. As a Texan, we are all affected by this.
Here are some photos I took during one of my visits to Galveston a few years ago. Galveston, like New Orleans will recover from all of this.
