hurricane ike (2008)
first off, happy thoughts go out to all of the ike victims out in galveston. that sob really did a number and watching the wreckage on tv is surreal.
second off, fuck you ike. this is the first time i've actually experienced or had to "ride out" a hurricane, and surreal is the only word i can think of. driving through my neighborhood the day after was crazy. every other tree is uprooted, and there was debris all over the fucking place. we didn't even get the worst of it. i mean yeah, i whined and bitched about not having lights for 4 days, but that doesn't really scratch the surface much.
anyway, all is well on my end. here's to another 25 years in houston without a hurricane. cheers.
