Here's To Houston (Or, Take a Hike, Ike!!)
During my kindergarten year, we lived in Houston. Granted, we only lived there a year and came back to the mountains of Utah as soon as we could, but we had a hurricane (actually it came in as a tropical storm) hit while we were there. Even as "just" a tropical storm, I remember how hard the wind blew and how the rain came down in sheets at about a 45-degree angle! I have an aunt and uncle who live a little further down the coast from Houston, but still in the path of Ike, so I'm thinking of them and all the people in that area who are in the path of the storm. Let's keep them in our prayers that the damage will be minimized and the people will be kept safe somehow!
