The last time I posted Hurricane Ike was heading right towards the coast of Texas. It made landfall in Galveston, TX, very close to where I live. Thankfully, my home was spared any damage. Unfortunately, my mother had some damage as did many other friends. Several people I know lost everything that they had as the water rose before the storm. Everyone is really coming together to help get the communities back up and running. The government officials here in Texas are doing a great job to get the help that so many people need. It is nice to see that happening!
