Museum open for two more Saturdays

NOT NICE--As this week began, the smoke and fog combo that hit Sunday morning was really something to see, as that's just about all that you could see at my house! It was defintely not a good time to be outside and warnings were given to stay inside...

 

Fire danger extremely high in local area

TOASTY--We got a heavy dose of Summer weather just as we go into the school year and what we always think of as Fall sports, but as we can see, these high temperatures mean more swim suits, flip flops and beach time, and not coats, umbrellas and...

 

Have a safe holiday weekend, everyone

NICE--We had a nice weekend but while we had the sunny days, those evenings got pretty chilly so we know the seasons will soon be changing. While we had just a bit of a downturn on Monday morning, which brought a smattering of showers, it didn't...

 

Fire danger is high, take great care

NICE AGAIN--We may have had some drippy times at the end of last week but the weekend wasn't too bad, so the traffic was still pretty thick heading to the beach, as everyone is anxious to get out and about while Summer is still here. If the forecast...

 

FOS still accepting donations for auction

HOT, HOT, HOT!--Last weekend started out on a very toasty note, as temperatures were in the upper 90s at this house and even the "cool" side of the house registered 95, which is not exactly my idea of a cool day! With the traffic going non-stop in...

 

Please make sure your pet is ID'd

NICE ONE--We certainly had a nice weekend with a bit of heat thrown in there for you sun lovers, so I'm sure you all enjoyed it. The late night hours cooled things off a bit and the early morning hours weren't bad either, so for folks like me who...

 

Museum to reopen Saturday, 1-4 p.m.

TOASTY--As this week began, we started off very sunny and warm as there was no haze, no morning mist, only direct sunshine coming in my windows and it warmed up very fast. We were in the low 90s in no time! With sunshine forecast for the entire...

 

Lions Club berries available to order

NICE--We're finally getting a bit more summer-like weather and with that, it means our gardens need a little extra drink and it also means more people out and about on the waterways, so be extra careful out there. Then of course, the increased...

 

County-wide burn ban now in place

WEEKEND WEATHER--we had a mixed bag of weather this past weekend, as Friday was great but cooled downed quickly so we saw some wetness out here on Saturday and then it was pretty decent Sunday with a nice sunny day this past Monday, so not too bad. I...

 

Please abide by the rules for health

MIXED BAG AGAIN--This past weekend was certainly a bit of everything, and as usual, we wound up with the "mostly cloudy" part on the Fourth of July until later on in the evening, when the skies cleared up and we saw the sun about 7:30 p.m. When we...

 

Celebrate safely on this Fouth of July

MIXED WEATHER--This past weekend started a bit drippy for many of us and the "brief shower" listed on our weather apps lasted much longer for some of us, as often times we find that West Valley is "very special,"as in, "always different" than most,...

 

More businesses set to open locally

ANOTHER MIXED WEEKEND--There's nothing like being in the 80s one minute, and within an hour, in the 60s, followed by rain the next day, only to be followed by sunshine; what a way to end spring and start summer. With a little luck, the forecast of...

 

Treat the man in your family this Sunday

PRETTY WET--This past weekend it was pretty wet, like inches of wetness, at least out here in West Valley. The greenery even got so heavy, that a couple of trees came down and one of them took out our power! Thank goodness we saw a bit more sunshine...

 

Kayakers and Duck Inn to open soon

WET AND WILD--Once again, this past week has been a mix of weather, and depending on where you were, you were either mowing the lawn or you were pulling out the umbrellas and putting on your boots! While I was actually enjoying some sunshine after a...

 

Skamokawa's jewels see improvements during pandemic

One of the "jewels" of Skamokawa, WA is located on SR 4 just west of MP 29, where you'll turn to the south onto Vista Park Road and find a true gem along the mighty Columbia River, which is...

 

More businesses opening soon

WEEKEND--This past weekend marked the end of May and it ended in quite a racket really, as Saturday morning was booming with rolling thunder and later on, the pounding of some rain, but it was brief, so it was only noisy for a short amount of time...

 

Restrictions are being lifted here gradually

WET--As I begin this on Memorial Day, it is a very wet and ugly looking day out there, so if you had any plans for this past weekend, I hope you did them earlier on, as this start to the week was not a nice one. While radar showed little moisture...

 

Skamokawa News: No fresh strawberries from Lions Club

PRETTY WET--I hope you used those sun breaks earlier this week to get your lawn mowed and those other outdoor chores done, as we are supposed to get pretty wet during this week. Last weekend I was happy to get out and about and get a bit of yardwork...

 

We all need to stay vigilant against covid

HOT ONE--If you are one of those folks who like the heat, you sure enjoyed this past weekend, as temperatures were close to 90 degrees, certainly toasty enough for me! Before that, there were several days that were in the upper 70s/lower 80s and it...

 

Mother's Day is this Sunday; treat her

MIXED BAG--This past weekend was certainly a mixture of weather, as it seemed to pour down rain one minute and then the sun would come out and it looked great again; until the next cloud burst showed up. I'm told the end of this week may see some ver...

 

More cancellations have been announced

ALMOST GONE--If you are getting this on Thursday, then this is the last day of yet another month; where did April go? So, tomorrow, Friday, is May Day; Happy May Day, everybody! Here's hoping you can surprise somebody with some flowers, like we used...

 

Food banks are all open for those in need

MIXED BAG--Last Friday saw us enjoying a truly stunning day with temperatures reaching in the mid-70s and boy, that was nice! But, what a difference a few hours makes, as we woke up Saturday morning to a cloudy and damp morning. It wasn't a whole...

 

Dump is open and ferry running reduced hours

SUPER NICE--As this work week begins, it's a really gorgeous day and if it wasn't for the pollen outside, it would be terrific to be out there! It's still nice, but if you're an allergy sufferer, it's not quite so neat. Still, it beats the rain! We d...

 

Easter will be celebrated very differently this year

STARTING OFF--As this week began, we actually had a pretty nice day this last Sunday. At least it was decent enough here to get the lawn mowed and do a lot of other outside things, so that certainly helped with our cabin fever and kept us occupied du...

 

Skamokawa store and Duck Inn are closed

WET ONE--This past weekend was fairly soggy and not exactly the kind of weather one wants in order to get out and take a walk to get a bit of fresh air. Hopefully the forecast of nicer days will come true and we'll all be able to get out in our...
