It's Over!

Today's the last "official" day of the 2005 Hurricane Season.

Tropical Storm Epsilon is still active in the Atlantic

I feel like I'm back at the frat house!

26 Named Storms. Previous Record - 21 (1933)
13 Hurricanes (unless Epsilon becomes a hurricane) Previous record - 12 (1969)7 Majors (Cat 3 or higher)

On a recent web search we found your blog postings that relate
to the recent hurricanes. We at the Hurricane Digital Memory Bank
( invite you to upload your postings or
stories to this public database as part of a nationwide memory bank
that will help historians write the history of these storms. A
collaborative project between George Mason University’s Center for
History and New Media, the University of New Orleans, and the
Smithsonian Institution the Hurricane Digital Memory Bank is
collecting, preserving, and presenting the stories, images, and
responses of the devastating 2005 hurricane season.

If you decide to contribute, your stories will be credited to you and you
will retain copyright over that data. When we display images, blog
postings, or podcasts, we also create a bibliographic citation as a
reference for those using the memory bank for research. If at any time
you change your mind, you may contact us (
and we will delete your materials.

Still wondering who we are and what we do? This project builds on prior
work by George Mason University’s Center for History and New Media, and
other partners such as the Smithsonian Institution and the Library of
Congress, to collect and preserve history online, especially through
the ECHO ( project and the September 11 Digital
Archive ( Check out these sites and see what you

We are collecting all types of information, and we encourage you and
your friends and family to submit stories, documents, images, or audio
files through our website:

Thank you!
