Update on the Parents in Houston – post Ike

For those of you who’ve asked how my parents are doing after Hurricane Ike decimated the Houston/Galveston area, the answer is they’re doing OK.

They don’t have power, but their land-line phones are working again. There was minimal damage to the house, some siding blew off, no flooding, or extreme damage. A few neighbors lost chimneys, and some trees snapped on the Golf Course. The Cat is also fine.

Friends of ours in the area DO have power, so my parents spent the afternoon with them. Hopefully they’ll get power back soon.

For updates on how things are going, the Houston Chronicle’s website, www.chron.com ,is doing a decent job covering the issues.
