Following Aggies reporting on Ike, via Twitter

Here's a recap of today's tweets in which I tried to keep up with various A&M grads out there covering Ike. Most likely I won't be doing the same tomorrow, but you can definitely keep up with Sara Foley '05 and Rhiannon Meyers '05 at http://www.galvnews.com/, with Richard Oliver '81 at http://www.mysa.com/, all of the Aggies at http://www.theeagle.com/ and Jay Janner '91 at http://www.statesman.com/ and the Statesman's Ike Twitter account, www.twitter.com/trackingike. (Links to more Ike reporting around the state on my account, www.twitter.com/aggiejournalist; just fish through the folks I'm following.)

And LCRA meteorologist Bob Rose -- also an Aggie -- will hold a second live chat about Ike Friday at 2 p.m. on
www.statesman.com, taking questions from readers.
