I drove with friends up to Kooskooskie to empty another friend's freezer and refrigerators (our friend was in town staying with other friends) and saw the damage there. Some of it had been cleaned off, and wires pulled aside so traffic could get through.
Friday, January 4, 2008 strong winds hit around 9:30 am and got to 78mph before the wind-o-meter power went out. Walla Walla is known for all its grand old trees, but we lost many of them in this storm. Partially because of its intensity, and partially because it was relentless and continued for hours. Houses, fences, vehicles, and roofs were damaged, but no one was hurt or killed!!
