Now 90 and living in Columbus, Ohio, Glenn just recently gave up flying and sold his twin-engine Beechcraft Baron. It was tough hopping up on a wing to climb aboard the plane. Glenn and his wife, Annie, who turns 92 on Friday, both had knee replacements last year.
50 years later: Remembering the ’62 Storm in Delaware
In March 1962, a powerful, slow-moving northeaster pummeled the mid-Atlantic coast, bringing huge waves, extreme winds and record-setting tides over the course of three days. Often called “Delaware’s Coastal Storm of the Century,” the catastrophe destroyed homes, flooded communities and killed seven people.
In commemoration of the storm’s 50th anniversary, free public events highlighting coastal vulnerability and sustainability are scheduled for Wednesday, March 7 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Rehoboth Beach Convention Center. The activities are sponsored by the Delaware Sea Grant College Program (DESG), the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) and the City of Rehoboth Beach.
