PREVIOUSLY: All Past Humboldt Approved Winners

Thank you, earthquake. LoCO really appreciates your timing if for no other reason than for giving us a tie-in for this week’s Humboldt Approved small town popularity poll. We’re gonna go ‘head and milk earthquake fever for all it’s worth and ask you to choose between Humboldt’s many great historical, Mother Nature-breathed calamities.

So come on, old-timey Humboldt porch sitters. Regale us with your colorful and dramatic story of your state of undress when the (insert abbreviated year) (insert natty disaster) went down. But make sure you refer to the official Humboldt Approved rules below to make sure your upvote counts:

To vote, look through the comments of this Humboldt Approved poll. If someone has already nominated the answer you would give for this week’s category, click the upvote arrow. If you don’t see your desired Humboldt Approved answer nominate it in a comment for others to upvote. (Please be careful to not duplicate answers; redundant answers will be deleted and potential associated upvotes will be lost.) Feel free to make your case by replying to/cheering on the answer you love most, but again the number by the arrows on the initial nomination is what counts.

You can vote for as many nominees as you deem worthy but, of course, the more you do that the more watered down your initial vote becomes. That’s math.

We reserve the right to delete superfluous/lame comments that make the voting/comment section hard to sift through. Please try not to get offended when your comment battle reply is deleted. We’re trying to do something here.

While many weeks we look for two winners — one winner from the metropolises of Eureka and Arcata, and one from Humboldt’s smaller communities — due to the nature of this category, this time we’re gonna limit it to one. Voting closes next Friday at noon and soon after a winner will be declared.

Too soon? No way! Vote, HumCo!
