Denver Post – January 1, 1910 – Monument Ice Houses Wrecked by Wind

Denver Post, January 1, 1910

Colorado Springs, Colo., Jan. 1. A windstorm which attained a velocity of seventy-five miles an hour caused innumerable small fires and considerable damage here yesterday afternoon and last night. From 7 o’clock last night the city was in darkness owing to fallen wires, and for some time telephone communication was cut off.

Reports from Monument are to the effect that the ice houses there, valued at $10,000 and owned by W.E. Doyle of this city, were entirely destroyed by the terrific winds which prevailed in that vicinity.
