Author Michael Tougias Visits the Hopkinton Public Library

Imagine being trapped in a sailboat in the ocean during the middle of a hurricane, not knowing if you will ever be rescued? That is the subject of author Michael Tougias's book "A Storm too Soon" based on the true story of a 2007 Coast Guard rescue off the Gulf Stream. The book recounts the harrowing experiences of three sailors JP, Ben, and Rudy, who set off from Florida to cross the Atlantic in a 45 foot sailboat. The book's title refers to the fact that the three left in May, one month before the start of hurricane season.

Tougias was at the Hopkinton Public Library on Wednesday, February 6 for a presentation about his book. Before leaving, he also signed a book spine for the Heritage Quilt Project.

"A Storm too Soon" as well as many of Tougias's other books are available at the library to take out or can be purchased at major bookstores or online. Recently, Disney picked up the rights to his book "The Finest Hours" and he currently is working on a book about the sinking of the HMS Bounty during Hurricane Sandy.

Today brings a forecast for warm weather and rain. A major concern is the combination of rain and snow load on roofs. Below is a message from Fire Chief Ken Clark:

The February 8th winter storm that hit Massachusetts presents a variety of challenges. As we approach the new week, it is anticipated that warm temperatures and rainfall may blanket portions of Massachusetts. With the recent heavy snowfall, rain will increase the weight of snow on roofs throughout the Commonwealth. Fire and building services need to plan for the onset of storm related issues.
