Hurricane Ike and my former hometown, Alvin, Texas
I received an e-mail from my oldest sister today. Sabrina forwarded a message from her high school friend who still lives in Alvin, Texas, where the Zowie family lived from 1981-1983. Fond memories. Janet posted photos of the damage done by Hurricane Ike. Not as bad as what I had imagined, since Alvin’s not very far from the Gulf Coast (20 miles or so southeast of Houston and about 20 miles from the water). Am very glad, since an elementary school teacher of mine lives there. I won’t name her, for privacy purposes, but once I hear from her I’ll post on it. Again, without naming her. It’s more to let people know how people in Texas’ Houston region are doing.
