|the biggest hurricane i lived through - 1991's hurricane bob|
but the reality of being on long island during the summer means, as many are finding out, the occasional hurricane or tropical depression. now this isn't good news. this is boarding up windows if you aren't evacuating, stocking up on flashlights and candles, and bottled water. but that's in this day and age. when we were shook by hurricanes in the early 90s, we didn't have days to evacuate before hand - we buckled down and stayed put.
