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...

 

Get ready, the new year is just around the corner

A REAL MIX--On Christmas weekend, it depended where you were as to what kind of weather you had, but for those in the areas where snow was falling, they were totally excited to have a white Christmas! Seattle had the first white Christmas in 10...

 

Christmas weekend is nearly upon us

GLOOMY--Our freezing weather finally released its grip on us, and the rainy weather showed back up, but they say we may have some dry weather coming and we'll be dipping down in the 20s again! Of course, the other forecaster I heard said that if a...

 

Redmen Hall to close for winter on December 18

COLD ENOUGH?--We've dried out recently but with that dryness came some bone-chilling temperatures here in our neck of the woods. I am not a lover of the 20-something temps but I have loved the blue sky and sunshine that warmed things up to the 40s!...

 

Flea market at fairgrounds will be Saturday, December 9

COLD!--As I begin this column, we're just at 32 here Monday morning. Forecasters say we will be fairly dry this week, which almost always winds up meaning "dry but very cold" in the evening hours. Having some dry time would be nice, as I'm sure...

 

Happy Thanksgiving to all in Wahkiakum and beyond

BIG DAY--It's almost turkey time! For you locals who get your paper prior to Thanksgiving, I know that all the cooks are probably in the kitchen, whipping up pumpkin pies, or maybe pecan pies and all those awesome side dishes like candied yams and...

 

Fair Turkey Bingo at Wendt Multi-purpose room on Friday

IT'S WET & WILD!--Here we are, heading into the third week of November and it's wet and windy and very fall-like. I hope you all survived the wind storm that hit Sunday night and part of Monday. We lost power, but I was totally expecting that, but...

 

Saturday is Veterans Day and Fair Flea Market

CHILLY OUT--Last week ended quite wet and a bit chilly, and for some areas to the north of us, as well as in the mountains, the "white stuff" was falling! Classmate, Greg Lloyd, said it was snowing pretty good up there in Everett and others said it...

 

Walk 'n' Knock Food Drive is set for this Saturday

MIX OF WEATHER--We have had some gorgeous fall days, and we've had some "so-so" ones like this past Sunday, which was cloudy and gloomy and dampish, but it wasn't pouring down rain at least. Monday was awesome but then our temperatures are going to...

 

Lots of Halloween events taking place on weekend

WILD ONE!--We sure had ourselves a nasty, wet and windy begining to the weekend, as Saturday was just horrible and by the evening, even worse. Many people lost power, which in our case, was caused by a big tree that came down and took out the...

 

Haunted House to open Friday at fairground

NIPPY--Last weekend was sunny and nice during the daytime but those late night temperatures were below freezing out here in West Valley, so we were definitely feeling the "nip" in the air. Unfortunately, the sunshine will be replaced with more rain...

 

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...

 

Vista Park kite festival was a great success

JUST PERFECT--We couldn't have asked for a better day to hold the First Annual Skamokawa Vista Park Kite Festival this past Saturday, as it was just right I thought! Early in the morning, the winds...

 

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

TOASTY--If you like the hot weather, you have obviously been enjoying this latest band of heat that has shown up this week! With temperatures in the upper 90s, this summer weather is not ending and it has led to a real dry one for sure. Fire danger...
