Re: Ike Landfall: Galveston

There's a part of me that will always think of Ike as Invest 97. When reading what was written here .. written well too it made me remember a lot on the beginnings of Ike and many of this season's storms that have come together and been "late bloomers" vs Cat 2s and 3s crossing the Atlantic.

With a wave down in the Carib it behooves us to all remember that as this seems to the year where storms form on our side of the world.

Yup... Invest 97.
