[Posting these photos three days after the storm, now that I have Internet access at the office — still no power or Internet at home]
This photo was taken at almost 2 a.m., as Hurricane Ike was making landfall near Galveston. Rain was intensifying, and downtown buildings are nearly all dark (or no longer visible due to the weather).
Heavy rain & wind in midtown. Eerie sky glow seems less now. Getting some leakage from bath vent but otherwise ok. 02:55 AM September 13, 2008
The house is creaking and groaning under the strain but holding up nicely against Ike here in midtown. 02:57 AM September 13, 2008 from twitterrific
