Hello, Jimmy here. I checked the pier first thing this morning as the storm got close. The T was taking some good licks already. The tide was still rising at the time. Tomorrow morning we hope the swells will have died enough to start repairing the T. We have a crew on standby to get this done as quickly as possible. We hope to open the restaurant tomorrow and the pier by Thursday. We will keep everyone posted here. Wish us luck!

The pier is still closed today due to water conditions and reassembly. We will reopen the front of the pier tomorrow morning, and hopefully the full T-head by tomorrow afternoon.

Jimmy's, the Sea Bean, and gift shop are open today however, so you can still join us for lunch, a cup of joe, or any of your souvenir needs!

Good morning Galveston. As of this morning, we have opened about half of the pier up for fishing while t-head repairs are finishing up.

Today's conditions are mostly cloudy, 86, with a 16 mph wind coming out of the south. Water is stained with a moderate chop. High tide at 7:51 am, low at 1:29 pm.

No report just yet. But we'll keep you all posted.

Good morning anglers. We are currently at 81 degrees outside, mostly cloudy, with a light wind of 5 mph out of the SSW. The water is sandy with a mild chop. The next high tide is at 8:31 this morning! The pier is still only open to the half-way point, but we hope to have more open by this evening. We do apologize for the inconvenience.

The Calm Before the Storm

 

Galveston has always been the summer playground of Texas, with its sandy beaches, eclectic shops, and coastal charms. It has also been victimized by the worst storms in history, which have forever changed the island’s fortunes. With another hurricane season upon us, is Galveston prepared for the future—or waiting for its ultimate fate?

 

August 2015By Robert Draper4 Comments

 

Arriving in Galveston the morning after Memorial Day from flood-stricken Houston—part of a weather tirade that had left more than twenty dead and thousands displaced—I found the island in a state of sunny, even smug, tranquillity, as if history had reversed itself and we had returned to the halcyon days before the Great Storm of 1900, when the island ruled the Gulf Coast. Before that calamitous hurricane laid waste to the dazzling port city and killed at least six thousand residents, to date the deadliest natural disaster in American history, it was commonly held that violent weather preyed only on large territory and would forever spare the unsinkable island. Of course, there has been a vicious succession of storms since that first one, and in its own way, 2008’s Hurricane Ike was especially brutal, in that it all but destroyed the city a second time. Ike was why I had come here. I had fully expected to see Galveston still in disarray seven years later. Instead, in this season of elemental havoc, I encountered an island of absolute calm—as well as inhabitants who argued, quite seriously, that Ike had done Galveston a favor. Scissors-32x32.png

 

Then, satisfied that I had seen enough—that Galveston was intact, more or less—I took leave of the island and its ghosts Scissors-32x32.png
