we had one that was actually a hurricane... 1986. Gloria.

we have a little strip of land called long island that takes the blunt of the hurricane out. and the Sound isn't big enough or warm enough for it to regain strength.

i think winds were in the 80 mph range when it hit southern ct, and about 75 when it passed by my place.

other than a couple branches down and no power for a little while, it wasn't that bad.

but then again... i was 6 when this happened.... and my memory of it is very slim.


yeah i remember gloria... that shit was fucking weak ... ive seen regular storms that were worse than that
i dont give a fuck about hurricanes... im more worried about ice storms... now those suck
