September 21, 1938 Wednesday

S.U. It has been raining several days. The water is at flood levels. The whistle blew for no school for High School or Grammar today. Came home and read book report book all a.m. In p.m. went out with Ernie to look at the flood waters. Helped his big sister move her furniture out of danger and came home at 5—it was raining even then—very hard. Ram around to do some quick errands and at 6:00 p.m. Keene became the victim of a howling hurricane. Our house shook back and forth so that we all went downstairs until it was over—or rather lessened, for it kept up viciously all night.
