Hurricane Ike Update from Baytown as of 9/12/08 at 6:40 PM: Wind Gust's of 45 MPH no rain yet, the worst still to come. It will be a long night.

Keep us informed on the effects of Hurricane Ike down your way. We hope you have escaped any damage or other ill effects. I have been watching with interest the videos and photos of the damage along the coast - looked pretty grim in some places.

Dan Jensen

I wonder what part of League City is flooded in that picture? The old League City was high ground as I rode out Hurricane Carla in days of yore. Of course, League City is not League City any more.

We had electricity restored at 11:54 last night,about 4 days to the minute from when it went off. Thank you Centerpoint Energy, or one of the power companies from 34 different states in the area. Have not had TV or internet in 4 days, did not know what was going on in the rest of the world, all radio coverage was on the storm. We will need a new roof, with winds of 105 MPH. The eye of the hurricane passed right over Baytown, and lasted for 2 hours. The first part of the storm the winds blew out of the northeast, and the second half of the storm from the southwest. We experienced strong winds for at least a full 8 hours. It was a very,very, long night. Very lucky we had only 1 oak tree about 15' tall in the front yard and it blew down. Overall very lucky compared to the folks in Galveston, and along the coast line. Some people will be displaced a very long time. In my opinion was much worse than Alicia in 1983, and Carla in 1961. People will be talking about Hurricane Ike, 50 years from now.

Ed Davis

Well, we are all glad that you and your family survived old Ike. Sounds like it was certainly a scary and trying time to endure. Sorry about losing your tree but at least it did not fall onto your house - at least it didn't sound like it did. Any other damage? Hang in there. We have said a lot of prayers for all you folks in the storm ravaged area. Keep us posted.

Dan Jensen

Did the hurricane knock Paul Hackett and Terry Mathis out of their interesting exchanges? We need to get that going again. Paul, are you still with us?

Dan Jensen

There are worse things than hurricanes and property damage. This is from an e-mail of Frank McKinney: "Mom passed away in the wee hours of September 13 as Ike was making landfall on Galveston Island. After some delay in getting the Bay Area up and running after Ike, the funeral was held on September 23rd."

Frank phoned me as I was typing this and it was great talking with him. His mother was almost 92. His father died 15 years ago.

Coach Carlisle at Southwest Texas

  • Coach and Basketball - Senior Year
    The photos in this album are taken from the yearbook, entitled The Pedagog, from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos for the 1948/49 school year. Coach Carlisle was a senior that year. The photos tell a story of a very accomplished and talented athlete but also a person who had many other outstanding attributes as well. Thanks for Peggy Carlisle for supplying the yearbook from which these photos were taken.
