At some point everything will be on the Internet. For instance, this afternoon my friend Bob sent me an IM

This NEVER bodes well!
The photo below is from September 26, 1985. I remember the suit. It was silk. I loved that suit.
There is one part of that photo I forgot. The prediction was for tropical storm, not hurricane strength, winds¹. Somehow in the fog of time I thought I’d called for minimal hurricane force. Gloria was absolutely a tropical storm when it hit Connecticut, though it’s probably officially recorded as a hurricane at landfall.
¹ – We had AccuWeather for a short time very much against my will. Trust me. It was a forecast prepared by me.
One thought on “Hurricane Gloria Photo–25 Years/Pounds Ago”
This was a blast from the past for sure. I was at the height of my motherhood game with young kids and a hammer. I decided to tack up a nice blanket over the southern bedroom window “just in case” the windows were to blow out from the hurricane. I wanted to surprise my husband. I did. I put the hammer thru the window. He told the window repairman it was Hurricane Evi.. Not Hurricane Gloria… Good times…
