My Mom, Avery and I skeeted on up to the Hill Country when it looked like Ike was going to hit somewhere in the middle of the Texas Coast. As it was, the hurricane moved further north, devastating Galveston, and my old hometown of Houston.
I've been watching local Houston coverage, and am so touched by the sense of community H-town residents have shown. There seems to be a real sense of "we'll get this done, together," and it makes me even more proud of being a Native Texan.
Not meaning to trivialize what people are going through with this post. I figure, even in the midst of chaos, people like to see positive things, so I'm sharing pics from our little getaway...
