12.10.15 Jim Thode December 10 at 9:50pm · Tillamook Rock Light aka "Terrible Tilly" living up to her name today. The top of the light is 140' above sea level and that puts the top of the wave about 200' high. We dealt with closed roads due to slides and flooding, torrential rain, 1/2" hail and gale force winds to get this pic. photo by Jim Thode
