The Free Speech Area After Ike
Ike came and went through East Texas quickly leaving 100,000 folks without electricity and many trees blown down. The only positive thing is that the weather is a lot cooler than three years ago with Rita, so living with out air conditioning it's not near as bad. However it is going to take a while to clean up all those trees and wind damage. We were lucky to not have any flooding.
Right before Ike hit us, I ran out and recorded this song. CNN called up and ask if they could use it on aire. Not sure if they will use it or not, however it's still cool to have them hear about it. By the way, I was making this up on the spot trying to beat the heavy rain and the power outage.
