Hurricane Ike

Hurricane Ike slammed into Texas last night, and as I write this blog, it is hovering over Lufkin, TX. If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you know we lived in Lufkin, Texas before we moved here to Wyoming. We were in Lufkin only about a month when Hurricane Rita hit and caused damage to our property. I also was working the emergency center at the hospital all night. Sean and I spent many weekends helping people clean their property with other priesthood holders in the Church.

Well, now Hurricane Ike has hit East Texas, and our thoughts and prayers go out to the great people of East Texas, and especially all our friends in Lufkin. Waking up this morning and seeing the destruction on Galveston Island was amazing. Page and I have visited Galveston and really loved eating at Fish Tales- where I have eaten the best gumbo and shrimp kisses I have ever had. That restaurant is right on the seawall side of the island. I wonder if it made it through the storm?

We also lived in Shreveport, Louisiana for 4 years and our prayers go out to all of our friends of Shreveport. You are being hit also and are in danger of tornadoes today. We are so far away from you today, but we are with you in spirit.
