Steam was coming up maybe 300
yards out into the surface.
Never have I seen that.
Solid ice on the roads.
Beautiful, very beautiful.
Seeing the snow on the sand,
something I've never seen,
but I mean this is shocking.
We woke up at like 3 in the
morning and it's incredible.
It's crazy nobody was
ready for this.
This house is about 101 years old.
Our pipes are busted. This
is day three of having no
electricity and no water.
Here in Galveston it's very, very cold.
They're not doing too good.
There are up next to the
heater just like I am.
We have no way to cook,
no way to heat the house or nothing,
and every place that open like
McDonald's there's a half mile line to
get in #2. So many people at
that McDonald's getting burgers.
First time ever. Even in summertime
it doesn't get that crazy.
Oh yeah, I'm going to get some
And when I get it, I'm going to.
Yeah, the pizza place even further
down was backed up.
Thank you, thank you. My biggest
fear right now is more for
my neighbors. Unfortunately he's about
86 years old and lives by himself
and kind of a shed if you will.
So actually I don't know
where James is right now.
Hi James. I don't need much iPhone phone.
Give me a bag of candy
at the house that's all.
Remember the Baker can and I'm just
really appreciated to know that
there's no other good Estonians
and Galvis toniann's that care
about helping their neighbors
during this time. Alrighty.
The power went out.
It's been really cold.
Huddling blankets, dogs,
layers, layers of clothing.
Never been through anything like
this before, just not real sure,
but the night's gonna hold.
Power outage very surreal, total
darkness. Just a very unusual thing.
Not having any lights and very little
sound and very little movement.
Once you lose power and water,
those things are hard
to come by because the supply
is limited on the island.
Let's go go go. So I'm going to
probably cook some food that will
be able to last us for a few days.
There you go, you have going,
we just need prayer that I'm praying
for everybody in Texas really were a
good little community here and we tend
to help each other out and bad times.
That's one of the things we love
about Galveston. We get in the water
in Galveston and we appreciate it.
Thank you very much.
Just hang in there and Galvis toniann's
Texans. We will get through this.
People end up here for a
million different reasons.
70 to 80 people who come
in just for a hot meal.
We've also learned that the Galveston
will show up if we ask them to, and
so that's been really amazing to see.
Normalcy is returning at a slow pace.
Spring warm up. It's just kills great.
Once the water is fixed at the
house with the broken pipe,
then normalcy will get back.
