Talked to the Aransas County judge who flew the county. They flew the island with Bass Bros. chopper. He said it was open, but didn't think it would stay open. He said that a handfull of cattle were on the matagorda side, and they pushed they back over with the chopper. The cows waded across the bayou that was about knee deep to a cow. That was one day after the storm, and the water was falling rapidly.
