OK - you can barely see my backyard because of all the fallen branches - luckily, no direct hit on my house, just grazes...
My electric power went out, and as of 5 p.m. Monday it STILL is out....another candlelit night at home, knitting and reading by flashlight.
But the purpose of this blog - I want to highly recommend the book ISAAC'S STORM: A MAN, A TIME, AND THE DEADLIEST HURRICANE IN HISTORY by Erik Larson. I read it several years ago, and it remains one of my favorite books. On September 7, 1900, a terrible hurricane completely distroyed Galveston, Texas and killed over 6,000 people. This book is based on the diaries of Isaac Monroe Cline, the resident meteorologist working for the U.S. Weather Bureau.
Very suspeneful and unfortunately very timely.
