Cause you never forget your first hurricane. Hugo was mine, in my hometown of Charleston, SC. In Meteorology, each line or “feather” on a wind barb = 10mph. There are 14 silver lines here for the 140mph winds Hugo threw at the SC coast. Bright red coral reflects the Hurricane Symbol, in all its power and glory. In the middle, as the wind barb, is a welded rib of a salvaged and repurposed umbrella.
