An old Sea Aggie friend of mine was able to visit the island in the days after Ike. She got some photos of the interstate into Galveston and our school - Texas A&M University (TAMUG). It's such a bummer to see this stuff. I read that they have already moved all the Galveston students to the College Station location so they can continue their classes. I cannot imagine having to deal with school in the middle of all this chaos. I also heard by word of mouth that the UTMB medical students are being relocated around the country so they can keep up with their schooling.
Boat in the road - a common sight in Galveston at the moment.
The bridge out to Pelican Island is demolished. =(
