As we wait for Hurricane Irene to arrive, I thought I would take some time to peruse the Library of Congress Chronicling America historical newspaper collection. Unfortunately the site is down for hardware maintenance. Drats.
But, for those who are in the midst of hurricane obsession, here is a very informative site on the Great Hurricane of 1938 – The Long Island Express.
Best of luck to all of us awaiting the storm – and soon I hope we will all be singing Good Night Irene.
