We began preparing for this hurricane the first of the week when it seemed to be heading right for us, but by the end of the week it had taken a Northern turn and we didn’t even get one drop of rain out of it.
We hosted family who were evacuated from the Victoria area, and they ended up being fortunate in no damage as well. Incidentally we had a nice visit.
We are praying for the many folks in Galvaston and Houston areas who were less fortunate. A couple of million folks in the Houston area are to be without power for up to a few weeks. I lift up all those dealing with the after-effects of Hurricane Ike.
