    The "Dolly" I remember, came up the east coast, between Carol, and Edna, in the mid fifties. The eye of Carol passed directly over us. Dolly passed far enough out that the effects were minimal.
    Edna, moved a triangular section of concrete block wall about 12 feet long, and 6 feet high, that remained after Carol destroyed the original wall, almost a quarter mile around the bay!
    I have nothing but respect for the force of wind and water combined!

    Wow.

    We're all prepped for TS Fay to come through later today, and are glad it's going to be nothing like Dolly (at least here in Miami).
