This is a facsimile of what our first Galveston page looked like on January 27, 2004. It presented current coastal weather throughout the United States.

This page later divided into two pages. One focused on Galveston, and the other presented weather on all the coasts. Now, there are also separate pages for the Gulf, Atlantic, and Pacific coasts.

When this page first appeared, it was called The Galveston Light. The title text is in an old version of Flash. If "The Galveston Light" heading does not appear, you may have to reload this page to see it. Alternatively, you may have to click on a message which asks if you want to allow it.

We no longer use Flash for text. One of these days, we'll re-do this title text as a jpeg or gif.
By the way, the typeface, or font, is called Long Island.


Links on this page take you to current versions of our other web pages.

>"Be not afeard. The isle is full of noises,
Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears, and sometimes voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again."

-- William Shakespeare, "The Tempest"
