    That's a nice site (but lots of pop-ups). I'll have to bookmark it and
save it for future reference. I looked up the great Labor Day Hurricane of
1935 of in and found that the central pressure was >>> 892 <<< Millibars.

    I should tell you about my adventures during hurricane Camille
sometime. I was in a off-raod race that day and it turned into a REAL
adventure. We weren't expecting any significant effects from Camille but
the rain that we got can only be called Biblical!
