Clean-Up Continues   1 comment

Clean-up after a storm as massive as Ike continues, and some parts of the region will remain a part of daily life for years to come.  Even areas not directly hit by Hurricane Ike are dealing with storm debris.  Padre Island National Seashore, the world’s longest barrier island and home of  the Kemp’s Ridley turtles’, has tons of debris originating hundreds of miles from home.   Meanwhile, officials continue to search for victims in southeast Texas.

Locally, the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion had canceled the rest of the season due to damage from Ike, and blue tarps remain on roofs as debris continues to grow on street curbs.  Yesterday, our next door neighbor had the “downed” large oak removed, which because of its size, took the use of large equipment and several workers.  We are still waiting to get an evaluation of the status of our large “leaning” pine.
