I was relieved that Ike veered off the original course that had it heading for Louisiana and Mississippi. Gustav cost Mississippi over $70 million, and I hate to think how that is going to impact an already poor state. The last thing we needed was another blow.
Now that it looks like we'll be safe, my thoughts turn to Texas. I hope that Ike weakens quickly and that residents along the Texas Gulf Coast manage to evacuate safely. Ike is projected to bring major damage. Stay safe, Texas!
