Re: Broadcasters Cope With Columbus Day Storm


Craig, my warped sense of humor is trying to keep up here…did the team score a field goal here, or did the actual press box cross the goal post? 🙂

Regardless, I was extremely young during this storm, just turned three, but I swear I have memories of it. For some reason my Seattle family was visiting Portland, (perhaps for a Husky-UO or OSU game…would have to check the historical record on that, as many college games were played in Portland during this era). I do remember no power in our friends almost brand-new suburban Beaverton neighborhood (remember this was ’62), and beyond that my memory blurs.

But what a rare and historical storm, later described as the remnants of a Pacific hurricane (or typhoon as they are known in the Pacific!)
