  1. I thought Isaac’s storm a fascinating book.

    A friend of mine is from Galveston and her grandmother and that generation (who have not gone on to their rewards) went through the hurricane as kids. I sent the book to her as soon as I finished it.

    I think I liked the book so much because it covered a subject which she’d already talked about so I felt I “knew” these people.

  2. Hoping you all stay dry. I’m thinking of you all!

  3. Hope all is well (and dry), Sherry. Thinking of you.
