Texas weather

We have had our second snow storm this winter here on the Texas Gulf Coast.

Normally our temps are 55-60 the last few days have been 20 – 35.

All of us Texans are pretty spoiled to our good weather 95% of the time.

We are ready for a break, some sunshine, warm temperatures and that way we can all get back to normal.

Go back to the cold states you crazy weather they are used to it.

 

Point Bolivar lighthouse

This is the Port Bolivar Lighthouse it was built in 1872 and decommissioned in 1933. It is the only lighthouse near us that I know of that is still standing.

The salt air has rusted it but it stands tall for all to see.

During 1900 when a hurricane hit Galveston 100 people stayed in this lighthouse.

The death toll from that hurricane was somewhere between 6,000 and 12,000. The storm was a category 4 but back then there were not the warnings that are available today.

Since then we have come along way warning people of danger ahead of time so they can leave the low lying coastal communities.
