The Bessie White was a Canadian coal schooner that went aground on Fire Island, about a mile west of Smith's Point. Conflicting historical records date the wreck to either 1919 or 1922.
On February 6 at approximately 4:30 a.m. heavy fog caused the Bessie White to run aground and the vessel quickly filled with water. The crew waited in the dark fog for day break when they launched two boats and escaped to shore. One boat overturned, injuring one crew member who was brought to shore and treated by the Coast Guard. All of the crew survived but the Bessie White and its cargo of coal was a complete loss.

Steve DiB and Michelle are looking for it and I'm having no luck.
It is, I promise, worse than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the lifetime of a teenager today.
just saw one of these out the window.
finally got my neighbors to verbally commit to the idea of getting an exterminator. both of them had told me in the last few weeks they were ok with it but they still hadnt communicated that to each other. instead they were sleeping in the babys room to avoid the roaches in their bed. if i can roll me eyes and call people idiots i may have a future as a marriage counselor.
