Was this storm his first display of power as a small lad after
being treated like slave labor collecting
sea lavender and being eaten up by mosquitos???

i dont think that many people who buy 'summer' homes on the islands now have any idea of what ol mother nature is capable of.

I have a booklet published in 1962, by The Ocean County Sun, with pictures and stories from that county. The storm altered the geography of the coast for some time. If that same storm hit today, the damage would be enormous. I hope none of you have to experience it. Once was enough for me.
