Hey all,

 As some of you may or may not know Texas can have some crazy weather, ranging from 104' degrees, to having a hail storm, to snowing all day, to having 12 tornados sometimes all of it in the same week. Yet this Hurricane is one of the worst I've seen in my 30 years living here. Now I live up in North Texas so I'm not as effected by the storms as the folks down south, But I have an Old Gal down south getting hit mighty hard by that storm, you all know her as BB-35 the USS Texas.

 At the moment I don't know the situation of her with the whole hurricane and what not, but I revisited her last year while she was getting more restorations done to her main and lower deck and took a lot of pictures of her and if you like it, I would like to share this pictures with all of you. I know a lot of people don't get to go see her so I hope you enjoy these.

Nice. Hopefully everything okay, considering her other problems, in the current situation.

Looking at her today through the monument camera, she seems to have survive the storm just fine.

Doesn't appear to be listing anymore then normal as far as I can tell.

If I were in that seat, I'd honestly feel powerful. Just being at the helm of a single AA gun on board this massive floating steel war machine would make me feel like a total bad*ss.

They posted some pics on the facebook page a few hours ago. The clinometer is showing about 4 degrees list.  Which is probably normal these days.

Ahh, yes. One of my earliest memories. I was about six, and my family visited the Texas on vacation. My dad held me up to the gunsight on one of those 20mm Orkelion AA guns and told me, "This is what your dad did in the war, son"

I'm jealous how much more interactive the Texas seems to be. When I went to the New Jersey earlier this year, the only thing you could really do other than look and read was lay down in the bunks.
