Very sad, I was there all last week.

Did the Turtle Club survive the storm?

The Turtle Club made it. The peir and walk way is messed up but the barge is still there. I dont think a class 5 will bring that place

Attached are photos of neighbor's back yards. Their houses and mine are OK, but the trees took a beating. This "was" a heavily forested and a wildlife sanctuary area.

It's very interesting to see the pics from the damage, and difficult for people to fathom the damages and losses people are encountering. When we get 3 days of rain and Ike drops 10" of rain in that period in MICHIGAN, it's astounding how powerful the storm must have been in Texas.
