I’m watching a live web feed of KHOU-TV as they follow Hurricane Ike moving ashore over the next few hours. Riveting story.
Especially riveting for personal reasons: I learned earlier today that a cousin of mine who lives in Galveston elected to ride out the storm. I’m praying for Becky and her husband.
UPDATE: 11:00 am Saturday: Just heard that Becky and her husband rode out the storm just fine. They were on the third floor of an old building that had survived the 1900 hurricane, so they felt safe. Apparently their confidence was well-placed.
