This past Sunday, 2/08/09, Jim and I drove to Galveston. We meant to go over the holiday break but never got around to it. The city actually looked pretty good. Most of the trash has been removed. The areas by the Sea Wall seemed the same as before. But, then we got down to the Flagship hotel. It's on a pier over the bay. Now it's shuttered up and one the driveways is in ruins
We drove to the Strand and there were very few shops open. I didn't even go shopping! When we got home Mom wanted to know what I brought her. She's gotten spoiled. She couldn't believe that I hadn't gone into any stores.
I sure hope this next hurricane season is not as bad.
