As I was reading the post from Julie I referred to here, I was dumbfounded by her mention of a Molasses Disaster of 1919. I think my word for word reaction was, "What the hell is that?"
So today, since I made it a point to sit around doing next to nothing, I casually typed Molasses Disaster 1919 into the Google seach box and came up with this.
Not that I didn't believe Julie, of course. Even so, I was surprised at how destructive this event was. So just remember that the next time you're baking those cookies I gave you the recipe for.
