Forty-seven years ago, the Pacific Northwest was hit with a horrible windstorm called The Columbus Day Storm. I had just turned four, and it ruined my birthday party. We were living in a small little home in Springfield, at 5th and G. The wind blew huge trees over and they were lying all over the place. To this day, I get nervous when high winds are forecasted. I fill up the bathtub with water just in case we lose electricity, so we can use the water and still flush the toilets. (Because we live in the country and are on a pump.)
Anyway, I asked my Facebook Friends to post their memories of the storm, and some of them did. Thanks, guys! Please leave your comments at the bottom of this post.
