SATURDAY'S game was Town's first abandonment in 12 years.
The Autoglass Trophy first-round tie with Blackpool on January 14, 1992 ended at half-time, with Town leading 1-0, because of fog.
Town won the rearranged game 3-1 on penalties after a 1-1 extra-time draw.
Four years earlier, on February 28, 1988, Town were also 1-0 up when their game at Swansea in the old Third Division was abandoned at half-time because of floodlight failure.
Town lost the rearranged match 1-0.
Saturday's Sixfields clash was one of two abandoned.
Town's Division III rivals Mansfield and Oxford only reached half-time at Field Mill, where it was goalless.
Before the game kicked-off, the touchline dug-outs were dislodged by the wind.
Mansfield's players were on the pitch and waiting for the second half to start when the decision to abandon was made by South Yorkshire referee Howard Webb.
The high winds caused the postponement of two Division I matches, Burnley versus Wimbledon and Stoke versus West Brom.
Burnley chief executive Dave Edmundson explained: "The gusting winds were 70-75mph in the upper tier of the James Hargreaves and Jimmy McIlroy Stand.
"A 16-stone person had been up there and was almost blown off his feet."
Stoke chief executive Jonathan Fuller said: "The wind was blowing a standing ball all over the pitch.
"The referee and managers believed it would have been well-nigh impossible to stage a proper game."
