UPDATE: I talked with my sister-in-law and she is safe at her parents’ home five hours away. She doesn’t know the status of her home, but was able to gather some things before she left. Consider helping those who have experienced loss here.
As my brother fights for our country in Iraq, this is the scene, unfortunately, where he lives in Seabrook, Texas. The damage is what has resulted from Hurricane Ike as it came ashore in Texas overnight. Although I haven’t talked to her yet, my hope is that my sister-in-law wasn’t there when it hit. It’s hard to talk this way when you see the devastation, but we were fortunate the storm wasn’t worse or as bad as originally forecast. Again, this is another opportunity to show you care.
