    I slept that night with the tv on, waking up every couple of hours to the most disturbed and disturbing voices on CNN. During Gustav, I saw a newscaster on a roof on an island with a rope tied around his waist so he wouldn’t get blown away by the wind. I saw him get scared and run inside when the storm got too strong. Somehow the images of Ike were even more frightening, and the people covering the storm were obviously more freaked out than they were during Gustav. At one point they were talking about a 20-foot high wall of water headed for Galveston.

    Kind of puts beach-front property in a different light.
