Event to raise funds for Puerto Rico set for Oct. 21

GOT DAMP--We ended last week with a bit of rain and started the weekend that way too, which of course, was not ideal for those with outdoor plans, but the moisture was certainly needed. The week started with some cool temperatures and quite a bit of...

 

Event to raise funds for Puerto Rico set for September 21

NOT TOO BAD--We had a couple of very warm days last week, as it was up in the mid-80s, which isn't too shabby for the end of September, but as of last weekend, it looked like we were back into a little more fall-like weather, with sun one minute and...

Kites will be flying at Vista Park on September 23

WET, WET--As this week began, we had quite a bit of rain and wind too! With all the dry forests around us and the fires raging in so many parts of the PNW, it was really a welcome relief, and it beat the snow that Montana got, as I'm not quite ready...

 

Wahkiakum Mules are on two game winning streak

DAMPNESS--It was great to have a little bit of moisture this past weekend, although I'm not sure everyone agreed as there were a lot of things going on, like people camping and fancy cars and trucks headed to car shows, that would rather have had it...

 

Flea market on Saturday at Wahkiakum Fairgrounds

HOT!--I don't know about you, but if the rain shows up during the latter part of this week like they are forecasting, I will be very relieved, as these high temperatures have just been miserable for a lot of folks without AC and it makes working...

 

Mules to play first football game Friday

NICE--This past weekend's weather was great, and other than a chance of sprinkles one day this week, we are still going to be basking in the sunshine they say, so I hope you're all enjoying this...

 

Wahkiakum County Fair opens today at 9 a.m.

COOLED DOWN--Lately, I have thoroughly enjoyed the cloudier, cooler mornings before the sun came out in the afternoon as that meant things did not get so hot here as they have been inland, and that's fine by me. The heavy marine layer even gave us...

 

Princess Bowcutt bake sale to be held Saturday

BEASTLY--I hope you all survived the record heat of last week and also the hazy, smoke-filled skies that descended around a lot of local areas, as it was pretty nasty out there for a bit. I was thankful for the wind on Friday, which not only caused...

Friday is last day to get animals registered for fair

BEEN WARM--By the time you read this, you may have experienced a little drizzle this morning, but forecasters weren't sure, and if it were to show up, it wouldn't be much. While some areas haven't had any sprinkles, we did manage a few last week...

 

Bald Eagle Days are this weekend in Cathlamet

DRY SPELL--Last Friday was the beginning of the burn ban for our area, and with all this dry weather we've been having, and blazes all over the western states, it's definitely not the time to be lighting a fire to burn any brush. As we head into...

 

Flea Market Saturday at the fairgrounds

PRETTY NICE--The first weekend in July was pretty doggone nice, as we had temperatures in the 70's and a nice breeze, so that was much more to my liking than those higher temps we had a short while ago. It was also looking dry for the big 4th of July...

 

Museum now open on Saturdays and Sundays

Museum now open on Fridays and Saturdays

NOT QUITE SO GOOD--The really warm, super nice, really good weekend that was supposed to have taken place over Father's Day weekend, didn't quite turn out the way they first predicted it would, at least not here. Go figure! However, after some rain...

 

Open mic night at Grange on Friday

SO-SO--It depended on where you were this past weekend as to what kind of weather you had. For some, it wasn't a bad day at all, while for others, it was a day of some sunshine accompanied by various rain showers. As we're only a week away from...

 

Wahkiakum graduation will be held on June 9

Rods & Reels show on Saturday at Fairgrounds

A MIX--We had some pretty warm days last weekend, but by the time you read this, it's supposed to have cooled down and maybe even rained, so we have really had some "yo-yo" weather around here lately! Umbrellas for shade one day and wearing...

 

Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend

SUPER NICE--We certainly couldn't complain about the weekend weather, unless you don't like the sunshine and warmth that went with it! Temperatures were in the mid-70's on Saturday, so it wasn't totally miserable, but then they went up and they were...

 

White Tail Run takes place this Saturday

SO-SO--This past weekend was Mother's Day weekend and I hope everyone had an enjoyable time in spite of some of the weather we had. We seemed to take turns between sun breaks and rain showers, some of which were quite heavy, so it really depended on...

 

Remember Mom on this Sunday

WILD TO MILD--I hope the crazy weather we had last Thursday will not be repeated soon, as that was certainly something we haven't gone through in some time. We had sunshine, then the clouds came in with the wind, the sky turned black and then...

 

Local creamery focus of Portland podcast

PRETTY DAMP--After a gorgeous day last Friday, which saw temperatures climb clear up to 70 degrees, the weekend was nothing at all like that! We were back to the rain and the gloom and the doom and some windy moments as well! The only thing I can...
