In Texas we been hit pretty bad many times! The last one Ike was a nasty one we had. It blew the roof out of my house and damaged my house pretty bad. It also killed a lot of ppl in Galveston, it damaged Galveston bad, that one summer. I remember we didn't have power for 3 exact weeks, power went out at 2 am and it came back three weeks after at 6pm. Those few weeks were hotter then a funeral home fan, in mid July!! I'm telling you!! Also I didn't see much federal help at all. It mainly was state assistance we had. I may be wrong, but Texas had more destruction and deaths then Sandy that year. We didn't get the attention or all these concerts NY is getting. Happy they can do that for all those victims.
But Texans, come hell or high water. We'll charge hell with a bucket of ice water.
