Ike's Carnage - Kemah TX (several images)
Posted By: Sailor, 09-27-2008, 10:21 AM

My cable/internet access has returned, so now I'm able to post some shots of Ike's aftermath. Here are several taken at Watergate Marina about a week after the storm. This marina, obviously, took a pretty heavy hit from Ike; remarkably, our marina (literally only a few hundred yards from where these images were taken) was essentially unscathed. We were lucky, indeed - but the folks that owned the boats below were not - I feel for 'em; it's gotta hurt.

I've been wondering how you made out in the storm. Glad to hear you escaped the worst of it.

Really tragedy. The first pic looks so ambient until looking to the right!

Thanks, Max. Glad you caught the irony. I've seen this boat numerous times on the bay - it looks awful, but the damage may not be as bad as the photo suggests.

My pleasure - although these things aren't that much fun to look at - particularly if you're a sailor.

I appreciate it, Ken. Kyle is heading your way right now, so keep your head down, my friend.

James, these shots sure "feel" tragic to me. My intellect tells me that boats (including mine) are just things (constructions of resin, glass, metal, wood and fabric), but boats often feel alive.

Jer

Here are three more that may be of interest. I'll post some shots from around town here in Lake Jackson tomorrow.

Great shots, Jer. Glad you boat made it through.

I made it to Galveston today and it is reallt torn up. It looks like a war zone. I'll post some pics in a different thread.

I'll be looking for the thread, Wayne. How's your Mom doing?
