Hurricane Ike

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.
