This is Crystal Beach, Texas, where, until last year, my in-laws lived in a house 2 blocks from the beach. They live about 20 minutes outside Houston now, just a couple of blocks from Kenin's sister and one of his brothers. Thankfully, they only sustained damage to their fences and are, of course, without power.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who's been affected by Hurricane Ike. Please do what you can to help those in need.
