Could everyone write one simple essay about something that once happened in Saltaire…that they saw or were a part of…and put it on one big website? Somebody should collect a lot of stories before we all forget. Otherwise it is like a line in “On The Beach” : The history of the war that now would never be written.” -(JO'H)

SALTAIRE WAITS OUT A HURRICANE, 1957
Note: Helen Weinlandt passed away on March 20, 2014. She lived 103 years.
The only way to do it: with friends and good cheer.
Who can see a relative here?
Ans: they waited out a hurricane together in 1957. (Or was it only yesterday?)
The only thing Jeff W. never told me: Where the hell were the kids during this horrible hurricane?
