Alexander J. Dallas, born 15 May 1791 in Philadelphia, Pa., entered the Navy as a midshipman 22 November 1805. He served with distinction in the War of 1812, the operations against Algiers in 1815, and in the suppression of piracy in the West Indies. He established and commanded the Pensacola Navy Yard from 1832 to 1843. On 16 July 1835 he was ordered to additional duty in command of the West India Squadron in supported General Scott during the war with the Seminole Indians in Florida, rendering such efficient service that the Government gratefully named a fort after him on the eastern coast of Florida. Commanding Pacific Squadron, Captain Dallas died at Callao, Peru, 3 June 1844 in the sloop Vandalia. DD-199 was named in his honor.

Dallas (DD-199) was launched 31 May 1919 by Newport News Shipbuilding Co., Newport News, VA., sponsored by Miss W. D. Strong, great grand-daughter of Captain Dallas; and commissioned 29 October 1920, Lieutenant E. H. Roach in temporary command. Lieutenant A. R. Early assumed command 10 November 1920.

Dallas cruised on the east coast, participating in exercises and maneuvers from her base at Charleston S .C. She arrived at Philadelphia 12 April 1922 and was placed out of commission there 26 June. Recommissioned 14 April 1925 Dallas served with various destroyer squadrons, acting as flagship for Squadrons 9 and 1. Until 1931 she cruised on the east coast and the Caribbean, engaging in gunnery exercises, battle torpedo practice, fleet maneuvers and problems; participAting in joint Army-Navy exercises, training members of the Naval Reserve; and serving as experimental ship at the Naval Torpedo Station, Newport, R.I.

On 9 January 1932 Dallas sailed from Charleston,S.C., for the west coast, arriving at San Diego, 21 March. She operated along the west coast and in the Hawaiian Islands, conducting force practice and tactical exercises and participating in combined fleet exercises.

Dallas sailed from San Diego 9 April 1934 for the Presidential Review of the Fleet in June 1934 at New York City, and tactical exercises on the east coast and in the Caribbean. Returning to San Diego 9 November,Dallas continued to operate in the Pacific until 1938, cruising to Hawaii and Alaska.

Dallas operated in the Canal Zone area between May and November 1938, visiting ports of the Republic of Panama; rendering service to Submarine Squadron 3; and making a good-will call at Buenaventura, Colombia. On 17 November she weighed anchor for the east coast arriving at Philadelphia 6 days later. She was again placed out of commission 23 March 1939.

With the outbreak of World War II in Europe, Dallas was recommissioned 26 September 1939 and assigned he Atlantic Fleet, serving as flagship for Destroyer Squadrons 41 and 30. She patrolled the Atlantic coast and conducted training exercises until 7 July 1941 when she got underway for Argentia, Newfoundland, arriving, days later. Between 11 July 1941 and 10 March 1942 she patrolled between Argentia and Halifax and escorted convoys to Reykjavik, Iceland, and Londonderry, Northern Ireland.

From 1 April 1942 to 3 October, Dallas escorted coastal shipping from New York and Norfolk to Florida, Texas, Cuba, Bermuda, and ports in the Caribbean. On 25 October she cleared Norfolk to rendezvous with TF 34 bound for the invasion landings on North Africa. Dallas was to carry a U.S. Army Raider battalion, and land them up the narrow, shallow, obstructed river to take a strategic airport near Port Lyautey, French Morocco. On 10 November she began her run up the Oued Sebou under the masterful guidance of Rene Malavergne, a civilian pilot who was to be the first foreign civilian to receive the Navy Cross. Under fire by cannon and small arms during the entire run, she plowed her way through mud and shallow water, narrowly missing the many sunken ships and other obstructions, and sliced through a cable crossing the river, to land her troops safely just off the airport. Her brilliant success in completing this mission with its many unexpected complications won her the Presidential Unit Citation. On 16 November she departed the African coast for Boston, arriving 26 November.

Dallas had convoy duty between Norfolk, New York and New London, making one voyage to Gibraltar from 3 March to 14 April 1943, until 9 May when she departed Norfolk for Oran, Algeria, arriving 23 May. She patrolled off the North African coast, then on 9 July joined TF 81 for screening duty during the invasion of Scoglitti, Sicily, from 10 to 12 July. She returned to convoy and patrol duties until 7 September when she joined the escort for a convoy bound for the invasion of the Italian mainland. Dallas screened the transport group during the landings at Salerno 9 September, and joined a south-bound convoy 2 days later, rescuing two downed British airmen on her way to Oran. She escorted reinforcements to Salerno, then served on escort and patrol in the Mediterranean until 11 December when she got underway for the east coast, arriving, at Philadelphia on Christmas Eve.

Following a thorough overhaul at Charleston, S.C, Dallas escorted two convoys to North Africa between 23 February and 9 June 1944. On the second voyage the escorts came under attack by enemy torpedo planes on 11 May but successfully defended the convoy; Dallas accounted for at least one plane, and damaging others. She served on the east coast on various training and convoy assignments until 7 Juno 1945 when she reported to Philadelphia. Her name was changed to Alexander Dallas 31 March to avoid confusion with the cruiser Dallas then under construction. Alexander Dallas was decommissioned 28 July 1946 and sold for scrap 30 November 1946.

In addition to her Presidential Unit Citation Dallas received four battle stars for World War II service.

USS Broome received its name in honor of Lieutenant Colonel John Broome of the Marine Corps. The Navy brought her into service upon her commission in October 1919. In 1920, the ship voyaged around Europe in both Atlantic and Mediterranean waters. She reported for duty in the Pacific at the end of 1920. The Navy decommissioned her in December 1922. The Navy brought her out of mothballs in February 1930. For most of the rest of the 1930s, she performed various operations in the Pacific. In May of 1939, the Navy sent her to serve in the Atlantic.

Up until the US entered the Second World War, USS Broome served with the Neutrality Patrol and escorted convoys to Iceland. After Pearl Harbor, the ship’s main role was in Atlantic waters performing various duties. She provided escort for convoys and performed patrols along the Eastern Seaboard. The ship trained sailors in the waters off the East Coast as well as Iceland, Canada, and the Caribbean. She provided escorts for convoys going across the Atlantic as well. In May 1945, the Navy redesignated her AG-96 and sent her to serve with the Operational Training Command. The Navy decommissioned her in May 1946 and sold her in November of that year.

Netscape Navigator

Netscape Navigator released quickly becoming market leader for browsing the web.

More Information for Netscape Navigator.

The full version of Netscape Navigator was released during December of 1994 and it was considered the first commercially successful web browser. It quickly became the leading web browser in the market and was offered for free to non-commercial users such as schools and non-profit organizations. Netscape Navigator’s popularity eventually declined during the late 1990s as Microsoft continued to improve and promote their own Internet Explorer web browser. Netscape eventually released their code under an open-source license where it was used for the creation of Mozilla Firefox. Support for it ended in 2008.

Notable events involving Roper include:

23 Mar 1942
USS Roper sank the bow section of the damaged American tanker Naeco with gunfire. The Neaco was torpedoed by German U-boat U-124 about 65 nautical miles south-east of Cape Lookout, North Carolina in position 33°59'N, 76°40'W.

31 Mar 1942
USS Roper picks up 70 survivors of the American passenger ship City of New York that was torpedoed and sunk on 29 March 1943 by German U-boat U-160 40 nautical miles east of Cape Hatteras in position 35°16'N, 74°25'W.

14 Apr 1942
On this day USS Roper (Lt.Cdr. Hamilton Howe) sank U-85 near Cape Hatteras, USA.

U-85 was the first U-boat to be sunk off the North American coast after the start of Operation Drumbeat (Paukenschlag) on 13 January 1942.

On the day that she was sunk U-85 stayed on the surface through the engagement. After repeated gunfire hits on the boat, fatally damaging her, the order to abandon ship was given and maybe half of the crew got into the water and then U-85 started to sink again fast. USS Roper then dropped 11 depth charges onto the already sinking U-boat and its 2 dozen survivors and in the process killed everyone in the water.

The wreck of U-85 is now a popular dive site.

23 Apr 1942
USS Roper picks up 30 survivors from the Panamanian merchant Desert Light that was torpedoed and sunk on 16 April 1942 east of Cape Hattaras in position 35°35'N, 72°48'W by German U-boat U-572.

29 Apr 1942
USS Roper picks up 14 survivors from the British merchant Empire Drum that was torpedoed and sunk on 24 April 1942 southeast of New York by German U-boat U-136. 13 more survivors from the same ship were picked up on 1 May.

Where do we go from here?

Suffice to say, it’s clear that the internet has bettered our lives. We can communicate with every corner of the globe and even maintain friendships that were previously impossible no matter how good of a pen pal you were. At Gadget Flow, we thrive on the internet and love all that it has done for innovation.

But, life is about balance. We have the internet at our disposal and we can use it, or not use it, for just about everything. However, we highly recommend signing off every now and then to connect with those, and the world, around you.

While this event was the coldest in the last ten years (and the last 30 years) it is by no means the coldest experienced by Texas residents. When studying the science of weather, it is always clear that weather events run in cycles and on occasion you can be hit by unlikely, but possible extreme events. However the question that remains for governments, businesses and individuals would be that of a cost/risk analysis and how far back should they be looking in time. Knowing the history of major cold events can help determine the overall risk of an event like this occurring.

If you were planning in Texas and managed on a 10, 20 or 30-year history, prior to this event you would have had to look down to the following date:

Doing your analysis you would have found Dallas at 13.9 degrees F in 2011. That value would have appeared as the coldest event you would be planning for. Only when going to the 40-year history would you have found the 1989 Texas event which shows an event below zero and colder than the 2021 winter storm.
