I love Texas but....

I do love Texas very much. We've visited four times in the past 3 years and it's one of my favorite states. Sometimes, I wish I lived there.... the people are so friendly, the food rocks and the weather in the spring is gorgeous. However, I would not live on the coast of Texas right now for all the tea in China.

Hurricane Ike is bearing down hard towards Galveston. Residents are and have been warned to get the hell off the island or face most certain death. You can read that horror story here. Of course there are those who won't leave. I just don't get it.. Read about that craziness here. I found in amusing that most of the people saying they are staying are pounding back the alcohol. I guess alcohol gives you courage.

Pat and Marvin and Babette are all without power right now. They have been since Sunday a.m. Their phone lines are up though.

I've never been to Texas other than driving through the top. It was so long ago, I don't remember. I can't believe all the crazy weather. It's just terrible.

I haven't been here in so long.
