Flee Ike

At one point in my life I lived in Beaumont, Texas. I learned to surf long-board in Galveston and spent countless summer hours waiting for the Shrimpers to come back in with the day's haul. There's nothing quite like Surfing, fresh Shrimp and a cool beverage to have a perfect summer day.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the residents of Galveston and the Texas coastal communities. From what I've been able to read Hurricane Ike will continue to be classified as a hurricane as far inland as Dallas/Fort Worth. Batten down the hatches and head the warnings.

From CNN:

Warning: Flee Ike or face 'certain death'

Residents living in single-family homes in some parts of coastal Texas face "certain death" if they do not heed orders to evacuate ahead of Hurricane Ike's arrival, the National Weather Service said Thursday night. full story
