Saturday is Earth Day; please do your part

GREAT WEEKEND--I wish the sun and dryness would have lasted a little longer, but if it were to show up, then we're sure glad it chose Easter weekend to be here, as boy, it's been awhile since we had two dry days together on a holiday! It didn't hurt...

 

Easter weekend has a very full schedule

WILD ONE--Depending on where you were this past week, you may have had some really crazy weather, which included lots of wind, rain, hail or if you were headed over an area of higher elevation, even some snow! While we had a slight blip in our power...

 

Music at the Grange Hall Saturday night

OFF AND ON--Last Friday was a gorgeous day and some folks were even enjoying a nice Saturday right from the start, but for those of us here in Skamokawa, it began as a cool, drippy, cloudy and well, not all that great of a beginning. Luckily, by...

 

Photography exhibit to open Sunday

SOGGY--As this week begins, it's a very soggy Sunday indeed. Saturday saw some breaks in the rain at least, but if you ask me, Sunday was just a good day to hunker down and stay put inside where it was nice and dry! The week looks to be fairly soggy...

 

Spring sports are up and running

HALF AND HALF--Last Thursday was totally awesome, and that sunshine sure perked everybody up for awhile. It also meant it was time for me to get out there and get at those flower beds, which I truly felt the next day! Friday was a different story as...

 

Celebrate St. Paddy's Day in Skamokawa

NASTY START--This past weekend began with a miserable start, as it rained and then blew some, and rained again. Luckily, we had a real nice break on Sunday, and it was terrific to see the sun shining, the river glistening, and out here in West...

 

Lots of events set for this weekend

COLD SHOT--This past weekend we had another little cold spell, and yes, we did indeed see some snow falling but it didn't last too long down here. Beaver Creek had four new inches of snow by Sunday morning, so I was glad it was up there and not down...

 

Lady Mules on great winning streak

MIXED BAG--As February came to an end, we've had some sun, some rain, some hail, some snow and some very cold temperatures, so we've had it all it seems! The snow we got last Thursday was a little more than many of us expected, but thankfully, it had...

 

We may still see some winter weather events

CHANGES--I think all of us in this area could agree that last Friday, Feb. 17, was just a gorgeous day! It was a "get outside, take a walk, hoorah for the sunshine" kind of day; very nice! Of course, then came Saturday, and the clouds and drippy weat...

 

Crab & oyster feed at Norse Hall Saturday

MUCH DIFFERENT--This past weekend we saw some sunshine and much more pleasant conditions than the last one. No white stuff, yeah! It was nice to catch a break after all the snow and rain, which led to road closures and tons of trees coming down, so...

 

Redmen Hall to reopen March 4

NOT NICE--The weekend began with lots of rain and temps in the 40s, so when I went to bed on Saturday night to pouring rain and 45 degree temps, I didn't think much of it, other than I knew I'd wake up to a "lake" Sunday morning. Well, I did wake up...

 

Valentine dinner will be at Grange Saturday

MILDER/THEN COLD?--We had a few days of warmer temperatures around here but still had some freezing mornings in West Valley, so it hasn't exactly been a heat wave! Still, it's certainly better than the massive flooding, snowfalls and freezing rain...

 

Crab & oyster feed Saturday in Rosburg

DAMP--This past weekend was a bit damp off and on and a little blustery too, but considering some areas were still dealing with snow and ice, and other parts of our nation suffered through a multitude of tornadoes and flooding, I'd say we fared...

 

Flood warnings issued for many areas

FREEZING COLD/WET--From the sounds of it, many folks knew it was cold, as their power bills really took a leap this past month, and they were right as it's been down to 11 degrees here! After several nights of freezing tempertures, one just gets chil...

 

Warm shelter available for homeless, others

MISERABLE--It got mighty cold last week in our region and depending on where you live, you got an extreme cold, down to 11 degrees here, plus some snowy or some icy conditons, along with some bitter breezes, which made things even colder. Seeing...

 

Celebrate the new year responsibly

NOT BAD--If you were hanging around this area during Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, the weather was quite co-operative, as it wasn't pouring, snowing, freezing or blowing, so I was pretty happy with the "just dreary looking" weather, as it wasn't a...

 

More donations will be most appreciated

COLD ENOUGH?--By the time you read this, we are supposed to have warmed up a little bit; I sure hope so! With puddles staying frozen and the snow that fell turning into hard crunchy ice, and temps in the teens at night here in West Valley, I am more...

 

More snow, ice may be coming our way

ROUND TWO--How did you make out during our little snow and freezing rain routine last week? I hope you weren't one of several who wound up in the ditch around here, as it only took about an hour of the white stuff coming down, and there was a call...

 

Get those letters mailed to Santa

BRR--If you've been in our area, you will have noticed a ton of rain, and then, a big cool down and even some flakes of snow! Actually, enough snow to make it nice and white! I heard from a classmate who lives in Everett and he said it was snowing...

 

November may set a rainfall record

GRAY & WET--As we ended November, I think we broke a record for being one of the wettest Thanksgivings here at our house ever, as we had 3.89 inches of rain that day! Although there were many areas who were seeing a soggy day, I don't think there...

 

Time to think about Christmas cards

THIS IS IT--It's that time of year when the kitchen is really bustling, as things are being made ready for the big Thanksgiving feast! I hope you are joined by friends and family and just having a great time enjoying one another's company as...

 

Turkey bingo Friday at J.A. Wendt school

SOME OF BOTH--Once again, it depended on where you were and what time you were there, as to what kind of weather you had this past weekend. At times it was quite balmy and clear, while the next night or morning might be socked in with fog and other t...

HALF AND HALF--We had quite a variety of weather at the end of last week, as it was absolutely gorgeous last Friday, with t-shirt type weather and absolutely horrible on Saturday, which brought out the boots and umbrellas! Sunday morning wound up...

 

Learn to make lefse at Norse Hall Thu-Sat

NOT TOO BAD--I am so glad we were able to have a really nice couple of days at the end of last week, as Friday was gorgeous and a good deal of Saturday was nice as well. This gave a nice break from the rain, that we needed, and which had our lawns...

 

Many Halloween events this weekend

NOT TOO BAD--Last weekend wasn't too bad, as while we had some rain, we also had some dry times, along with some sunshine, so it was certainly better than the weekend before! We even saw the "field lakes" going down at last, so that's always a...
