Galveston

Twelve hours from the storm HITTING, NO RAIN whatsoever and you would not BELIEVE the storm surge. Galveston is getting hammered and not a drop of rain to be seen. Already roads on the west side of the island are completely impassable and the news is showing houses up on stilts with waves so high they are hitting the decks. It is WILD Stuff.

They are saying where we are the winds will be 60mph ... before they were saying 100. Looks like Galveston is going to get the brunt of it. So many times I have dreamed of a beautiful beach house and then I see THIS and I think hmmm... looks like an insurance liability to me!

Weather here in Tomball is bright, sunny ... little breezy. Like nothing was coming ...
I can imagine it WAS like this 100 years ago. People had NO idea what was out in the Gulf.

If you have not read Issac's Storm ... read it! It's about the Hurricane of 1900 in Galveston.
