Slideshow -- Ike's Still Here

After Ike 004.JPGHair Balls made a tour of downtown and some inner-city neighborhoods and found that evidence of Hurricane Ike's destruction is still very much evident. It's nothing like what Galveston and other beach-front communities are facing, of course, but plenty of Houston  businesses and homes are still being repaired.

So, in case you were having trouble thinking of something to be thankful about for Thanksgiving, remember this: It isn't September 13th, and we aren't waiting for a giant-ass storm to make landfall. (Puts having to sit next to your weird cousin at Thanksgiving dinner in perspective, doesn't it?)

Check out a slideshow of the Ike tour here.
