“It is only when we are very happy, that we can bear to gaze merrily upon the vast and limitless expanse of water, rolling on and on with such persistent, irritating monotony, to the accompaniment of our thoughts, whether grave or gay. When they are gay, the waves echo their gaiety; but when they are sad, then every breaker, as it rolls, seems to bring additional sadness, and to speak to us of hopelessness and of the pettiness of all our joys.”

—From The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy

"So, in regard to disagreeable and formidable things, prudence does not consist in evasion or in flight, but in courage. He who wishes to walk in the most peaceful parts of life with any serenity must screw himself to resolution. Let him front the object of his worst apprehension, and his stoutness will commonly make his fear groundless ... The terrors of the storm are chiefly confined to the parlor and the cabin. The drover, the sailor, buffets it all day, and his health renews itself at as vigorous a pulse under the sleet, as under the sun of June."

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Know when the coast is clear. This weather display is for the one half of all Americans who live near the coast and for everyone else who is curious about the coast.

The Galveston Arrow also features weather, news, and tourist attractions for its namesake, Galveston, Texas. Galveston was the site of the 1900 Storm, the worst single disaster to ever strike the United States. Galveston is currently recovering from significant damage caused by the 2008 storm, Hurricane Ike.

Unless otherwise stated, all web page design, text, and photography are by Grady McAllister.
