Ike

I still have family members and neighbors in Ohio who still do not have power since the remains of hurricane Ike passed over the area three days ago. My prayers go out to those experiencing 'colonial living' at the moment, though at least the weather is reasonable.

Looks like the Houston/Galveston area really took in on the chin despite the fact that the hurricane was rather low powered affair (as far a hurricanes go). I shudder to think what would have happened if it was a category 5 a'la Katrina; it would probably be The Road Warrior from New York down to Texas.

Ike victims might not be allowed to rebuild either...

A 1959 law known as the Texas Open Beaches Act. Under the law, the strip of beach between the average high-tide line and the average low-tide line is considered public property, and it is illegal to build anything there.
