200 years ago today an un-named hurricane gave a major ass-kicking to the British army that had just set all of the nation’s capital ablaze during the British invasion of Washington D.C. in 1812…
More background on this history at the Air Force Weather Observer.
There also was an “Independence” Hurricane of 1775.
I guess man made global warming was on a rampage even back then, eh? Damn SUVs and coal-fired power plants!
