Katrina's Reply: Scott, thanks for posting. It was the area's first White Christmas in 20 years and a total of 18.75" inches fell. I didn't think it would ever stop snowing!

1970's Storm in Colonial Beach

by Richard Baskas
(Tampa, FL)

Sometime in the mid or late 1970's there was a storm that tore up the shoreline of southern Colonial Beach. I remember concrete and trees were tossed and the concrete was never fixed! We lived in the trailer lot on the southern tip of Colonial Beach right down the street from the Happy Clam. I also remember the LOWEST tide which occurred in the mid 1970's. I saw people walking out probably 1/4 to 1/2 mile!!!!!!
