Grim trigger warning: Google "pictures 1928 hurricane."

Old tale my Grandmother told of that hurricane when it moved upstate and passed over Pasco County:

"Oh, that wind bent the trees over close to the ground. Then, we ran out to tend to the animals and get wood, then ran back in [the eye]. Well that wind came back the other way, and straightened those trees back up!"

Some humor during a bad time.

Note that the 1928 hurricane tracked a path similar to some projections of Matthew. God, I hope it doesn't squat on Lake Okeechobee (40 miles across) and create another self-contained storm surge! This is where over 2,500 souls drowned as "their eyes were watching God" (Z. N. hurston).

1. Okeechobee is high over 15 ft

Last draining led to the green algae, Matthew could lead to a lot of flooding.
