Meet Agustin Arroyo, a 16-year-old Good Samaritan, who goes to Brazosport High School.
Classes have been canceled since Wednesday at his school. He said he and his family took in the trampoline, packed up and hit the road for destinations further inland.
Late this morning he arrived at our front yard in Missouri City via bicycle attracted by the piles of huge tree limbs that my husband had cut down this morning in advance of Hurricane Ike.
Bored and more than willing to help out, he volunteered his services. He worked hard for more than an hour as we sawed up the downed pine tree branches.
He also refused to take any money for it afterward, put his cap back on his head, and rode off into the ever darkening skies.
