Sudden Sea: The Great Hurricane of 1938

Sudden Sea: The Great Hurricane of 1938 - R.A. Scotti In September 1938, a hurricane began forming in the Atlantic and then suddenly accelerated up the Eastern Seaboard to hit New England. 700 people died and thousands of homes were destroyed, but today, almost nobody remembers it because WW2 intervened. Perhaps the most vivid and poignant scene are the teenage girls in bobby socks and skirts giggling as the wind takes hold of their skirts, completely unaware that the 90s teenager will be listening to Eminem and sleeping with half a dozen boys before graduation.

Well, you know, "those we the days...." lol

4/5 evocative, descriptive, even gripping
