    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.

    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.

    Yeah, pretty brutal. My folks live south of Houston in the Clear Lake area and are still with out power. But, they are all safe.
    I do have some friends in the Bolivar area that lost everything though :(
