GUEST,Lyle BS: Boat Tragedy?? (31) RE: BS: Boat Tragedy?? 10 Oct 04

This site:
has a lot about that area. There is nothing about 1952, but the timeline history lists the following for 1953. I thought the references listed might be of some help.

Jan. 8, 9, 1953 -- Astoria area cut off from rest of Oregon in storm. Wind gust 95 mph at Clatsop County airport, heavy rain (Astoria Budget, Jan. 9, 1953, p. 1)

Jan. 31, 1953 -- January rainfall in Grays Harbor beats 1914 record (Workman, p. 112)

Feb. 2, 1953 -- -- Seaside rainfall beats record for January, at 30.03 inches; Astoria 3rd wettest January at 26.35 inches (Astoria Budget, Feb. 2, 1953, p. 1)

Feb. 9, 1953 -- 32 day rain spell ends in Clatsop County (Astoria Budget, Feb. 9, 1953, p. 1)

Mar. 2, 1953 -- snowstorm, Grays Harbor (Workman, p. 112)

Sept. 28, 1953 -- gale, Grays Harbor (Workman, p. 113)

Dec. 10, 1953 -- heavy rain, 55 mph gale, Grays Harbor (Workman, p. 113)

Dec. 21, 1953 -- heavy rain, 60 mph gale (Workman, p. 113)

Good luck!
