Galveston Sunset Two Weeks Before Hurricane Ike

Here is a picture of the sunset I took in Galveston two weeks before Hurricane Ike.

Things are nice and normal in life. Then something goes wrong and everything is a mess. 

At the time I took this picture, people were still concerned that Hurricane Gustav might hit Galveston.

Here is the link the United Way’s Hurricane Ike fund.

The very good news is that things in Galveston will get better again.

Here is information about Galveston.

Donations To Assist Folks Impacted By Hurricane Ike

In the aftermath of Hurricane Ike, I’ve made donations to the United Way of Greater Houston and the American Red Cross.

I don’t say this to make me out as a great person, I’d just like to please remind people that many in Houston and Galveston are going to need help for a long time. 

The United Way of Greater Houston has established a United Way Hurricane Recovery Fund.  A number of social service agencies are going to be called upon to help recover from Ike in upcoming weeks and months. United Way efforts will offer long term solutions to problems hurricane victims will confront.

The American Red Cross provides disaster relief that is needed in times of crisis.

Here is a list of places to give help or get help after the hurricane.
