of Ike and men
I caught a bit of the news today and saw the waves crashing into the seawall in Galveston. They were so large and powerful, and Ike was still many hours away. Hopefully everyone was able to leave – and no lives are lost.
Whenever I think of Galveston, I think of a favorite series of books from my younger years. The heroine of each book was living through an important event or time in American history. One such heroine was Darcy. She lived through the Galveston hurricane of 1900 – still considered the nation’s worst natural disaster.
