Thought some of you might like to see some pics from Galveston. Lots of damage. The worst is that the Hooters was literally blown away. Galveston suffers direct hit from Hurricane Ike | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle The good news is my friend's restuarant was not destroyed. He will be able to get back in it in a few months. Too bad. They only had about a month and a half left in full-blown tourist season, so they will miss the rest of it. But they should be back up for next spring.
