Many people have compared the Ice Storm of '98 to the 1938 hurricane.  Click the button above for a first hand account of the hurricane damage, and what it was like on WODC trails.  (Local hikers will be particularly interested in the vivid description of Rollins Trail following the hurricane.  It sounds a bit like Dicey's Mill trail following the ice storm, but you be the judge.)
