Letter: Thank you, Gilliam County Sheriff's Office

When we were traveling Dec. 11 down the Gorge in a miserable rainstorm accompanied by relentless wind, we heard a loud "wham" followed by other loud car noises as we quickly pulled onto the shoulder of the road. We thought it was a blown tire but found the wind was so relentless it had blown the front bumper off and it was hanging onto the car as it was dragged underneath the front end.
