Dieselpunks

Dieselpunk + Steampunk Culture

As most know the Eastern coast of the US was hit by a hurricane this week. What many don't know is that there was a massive hurricane that blasted through the Northeast in 1938 known as the Long Island Express.

 

I wrote about this in this week's blog posting and I included a video of film footage from it.

I was thinking about the courage and effort of the person who shot the images
Good point, Pablo. We tend to forget the efforts of those who record history.

My old Marine regiment is getting ready to go up there and help out. Most of the guard are in the desert, so any active duty volunteers are welcome. I've never been more proud of my brothers or my country. I'd also like to thank you Larry. Most people were gonna pass this off as a half hearted Katrina, but the yankees have never dealt with this...or so we thought. Thank you for bringing it up, give i some notice beyond sensationalism.

Thanks, Ryan.
Regardless of Hurricane Categories or wind speeds, a lot of rain for a long time in a narrow mountain valley is a very, very bad thing. As a Texan, Larry, I'm sure you're all too familiar with flash floods (I know I sure was, growing up in the Hill Country). My heart goes out to the people of the Northeast. It'll be a long time recovering.
I sure am. We have a problem with children who insist on playing in dry creek beds and then, even though the sky is clear, a flash flood comes crashing down on them because of a storm that may be miles away.
