Re: Broadcasters Cope With Columbus Day Storm


My dad and I were picking my mother up from work. I remember the sky looking funny but don’t recall just how. After awhile, we became concerned that we would lose the 13 foot Teardrop travel trailer that had arrived at our house the day before, having won it, as the grand prize of Eastport Plaza’s second birthday. As luck would have it, the trailer was sandwiched between the house, adjoining garage and the house next door. It came through unscathed. We listened to KGW in our dark house, illuminated by candles and I thought it was the only station on, what with them making note of the emergency generator and everything. We lived a lot closer to KEX!
