As Hurricane Ike comes slamming into the Texas coast around midnight tonight, we hope our good friends from Houston and Galveston down along to Corpus Christi stay safe from the water's rage. As cumulus clouds of humidity lead the way into the Texas inland, we can only hope and pray now for the safe survival of the citizens of the coastal region. Already, mandatory evacuations have been made from Houston to Galveston, and while the Hurricane 2 storm will hit land tonight, many are staying, going against the governments' orders to flee.
These brave souls will see Ike come. And however one would praise or assail their judgment, they should be seen as heroes, waiting for the torturous torment to pass by. May the best of luck be with them all, and may God watch over.
