Here we are, two and half years ago, in beautiful Galveston Island, Texas. This beach is currently under water due to powerful Hurricane Ike.
This picture is a little deceiving but the wall you see behind us is very, very, very high. I am amazed seeing reporters standing on top of that wall and watching the water now come over the top.
I wanted you to see how massive the beach is in Galveston. I’m just astounded at the force of this hurricane and how far and high the water had to travel in order to be spilling up and into the street.
Be safe today Texas, you are in my thoughts.
