Today is the first day of summer

SUMMER HAS BEGUN--The hot weather showed up just in time to welcome Summer, although if it gets as hot as they say it might, I won't be overly thrilled, as anything over 75 seems a bit too much for me. But the way forecasts keep changing, who knows,...

 

WHS graduation to be held Friday, June 15

MUCH WETTER--Compared to the week before, this past weekend was much wetter. In spite of some sunny times, the rainy times definitely made their presence known, as it would absolutely come down in buckets, which pretty much destroyed what flowers I...

 

Final car show was a great success

HALF TERRIFIC--This past weekend we got one perfect day, and one "so-so" day. With some of our states experiencing wildfires already, I have to say, the raindrops that started on Sunday afternoon, were really a blessing I thought, as were the ones...

 

Final car show will be Saturday at fairgrounds

WEEKEND WAS NICE--The traffic was a bit heavy on Friday, but it sure was a nice day to start out this past Memorial Day weekend. Saturday saw some more clouds move in, but no rain, so it was perfect for doing some yard work, and Sunday was gorgeous....

 

Mule golfer and baseball teams are champs

NICE START--This week began with some nice weather and I think the sunny and breezy conditions are just great, as it's not too hot out there while we catch up on those yard chores. While my rhodies are all popping out, the grass popped up as well,...

 

Great White Tail Run Saturday at JBH Refuge

HALF OVER--Here we are, half past the middle of May so I guess you know, we should be experiencing a lot of May flowers due to April showers, and even May showers, so I hope you're enjoying the blooms and not commiserating with some of us, who really...

 

Celebrate Mother's Day this Sunday

WEATHER--It was pretty nice at the beginning of last week, and then we cooled down a bit, with even a few showers falling here and there, but I was still able to get some flower bed work done, so I hope you got to enjoy the sunny times. This past...

 

Museum opens Saturday 1-4 p.m., for the season

WET START--As this week begins, it is taking turns being wet and being sunny. It's hard to do a lot of outside things with the "yo-yo" weather, but it beats the steady downpours we'd been having earlier this month. If forecasters are correct, we...

 

Sunday is last day for exhibit at Redmen Hall

WEEKEND--This past weekened we started out a little damp on Saturday morning after a pretty cloudy, yet dry Friday, but it quickly became real sunny and nice. Saturday night saw temps drop down in the mid-30s, and with clear skies, I was hoping to...

 

Open mic night at Skamokawa Grange

ENOUGH ALREADY--I think I can safely say that we have all had our fill of April showers, so let's hope that the forecast of a couple of dry days this week came true, so we could dry out a little bit before the next wet system comes in. Better yet,...

 

New exhibit at Redmen Hall opens Friday

SOGGY & BREEZY--At the end of last Saturday, we were sitting here looking at two inches of rain on our weather meter, so it was definitely a wet one. While some areas got hit with some strong winds, we here in West Valley had some gusts but nothing...

 

Welcome to new mail carrier, Shelby Hoiland

SOME GOOD/SOME BAD--Thank goodness we had a nice day on Saturday after some morning clouds, as it made the Lions Club Easter Egg Hunt a big hit, and all the doings at the Wahkiakum County Fairgrounds were much more enjoyable as well. With my weather...

 

Hook the Hawg fishing derby Friday & Saturday

BRR--This past weekend saw some nippy temperatures, and even some snow in higher elevations, so it looks like Winter is not quite ready to give up to Spring! With a few dry days scheduled for this week, I'm hoping that they materialize, as it will...

 

Open mic night at Grange Hall Sunday

NOT SO GREAT--I suppose it depended on where you were, but as this week began, Sunday was definitely on the wet side in West Valley. We did have our dry moments, but for the most part, it was damp. Saturday was a bit better with more sun than rain,...

 

Happy St. Patrick's Day to one and all

GORGEOUS--In spite of some cold nights, the sunshine that shone through my windows on Saturday and Sunday was certainly welcomed! It was even into the 60s, which was a far cry from those cold, wet, windy and nippy 30 and 40 degree temperatures we've...

 

Vintage & Antique Sale on Friday and Saturday

NOT BAD--After a chilly start, our last weekend didn't start out too bad, as that blue sky and sunshine was truly a welcome sight. We even got up into the 50's! Of course, we couldn't have two perfect days in a row, but at least part of Sunday was...

 

FOS vintage sale runs March 9 & 10

WEEKEND ENDS--We certainly had a couple of batches of heavy snow around West Valley this past week, but at least when I woke up Saturday morning, the sun was shining and temperatures were above freezing and that certainly was a huge improvement over...

 

Winter not over, with low temperatures and snow

SNOW RETURNED--We woke up to a light layer of snow in West Valley this past Sunday morning, but places just a bit higher in elevation saw several inches of snow come down. KM had several inches and the Beaver Creek area saw a good amount too, which w...

 

Chamber Crab & Oyster feed at Norse Hall on Saturday

NICE--We started last weekend with some very chilly temperatures, below freezing on Saturday and Sunday morning, but the sunshine that followed was nice to see in place of the cloudy, often drizzly day we had on Friday, at least out our way! This...

 

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone, near and far

WET BEGINNING--If fog and drizzle are your friends, then you really liked how this week began, as Sunday was a gloomy, foggy, drizzly kind of day, which was just right for those who needed an excuse to sit inside all day in their sweats and watch...

 

Valentine Diamond Dinner Saturday at Fairgrounds

NEW MONTH--We may have a new month but it looks like we have the same weather; wet and blustery, with a side of slides and a dash of snow in the hills. Of course, if you were traveling over the mountains this past weekend, you might have gotten into...

 

There is still time to donate Christmas items to Kiwanis

WEATHER--It was quite a weekend as it was wet and pretty doggone windy too. Thankfully the last half of Sunday wasn't too bad and we got to dry out a little and see calmer weather just prior to the big football games! But the end of last week, it was...

 

Lasagna dinner is Saturday at fairgrounds

SUNSHINE--I think we all agree that the sunshine last Saturday and Sunday was certainly a welcome break from the dreary rain we'd been dealing with. Of course, this was a three day weekend, and it figures that we could only have two of the three be...

 

Open mic at Skamokawa Grange Saturday, 3 p.m.

DREARY--This past week has been one of a little sun, a little rain and a bit of fog, with warmer temperatures. By the time you read this, we may even see a couple of dry days, but I'm not holding my breath! However, if it shows up, I hope you'll be...

 

Blood drive to take place in Cathlamet on Friday

NEW YEAR--This is my first column in another new year; I can hardly believe it! I hope you ended the last one with a lot of fun and merriment and begin this one on a high note, as last year seemed like it was a pretty rough one for many. One thing...
