Be responsible pet owners, please

GRAY BEGINNING--It's a gray and drippy Monday morning to start the week and it looks like we will be fairly cloudy with a couple more drizzly days in the week ahead. However, if the forecast proves true, we will see temps in the 70's on Thursday, onl...

 

SR 401 reopened with one lane

GORGEOUS--I hope all this sunny weather hasn't worn you out, as I know people were really out and about this past week, as the sunshine brought everybody out to soak up some Vitamin D, which we all needed! It was great to have such a nice stretch of...

 

Farmers market begins May 4

NICE BEGINNING--As this week begins, it's a sunny Sunday morning around here, but it also started out very nippy, as it was only 24 degrees when we got up, so, we are truly hoping the warmer weather scheduled for the rest of the week, comes true. Tho...

 

Lots for free activities to enjoy in the county

NICE SURPRISE--I was so happy to see that our Easter weekend weather was not the drippy one that we had all feared, but instead we enjoyed some very wonderful sunshine and warmer temperatures, so that was awesome! Nothing cheers a person up like...

 

Easter egg hunts are scheduled

NOT SO NICE--As this week begins, it's a wet and blustery Palm Sunday, so it's a good day to hunker down inside after making sure all one's outside objects have been securely fastened down. However, forecasters are saying some dry days are ahead...

 

Fire department has two new trucks

WET--I wish the forecast had been wrong and our Spring weather had shown up with more sun than rain, but it was pretty wet off and on this past Saturday. I hate to complain about it much though as many areas of our country were dealing with...

 

Volunteers needed for several events

DRIPPY START--As this week begins, it's a drippy kind of Sunday, but I'm told we'll have some dry days between now and when you get this paper, so I hope you were able to enjoy them like we all did last week, as those sunny days were certainly...

 

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day

MIXED BAG--Saturday was a mix of weather from clouds to sunshine to rain and then repeated over and over, so the walk to the mailbox may have started out dry but by the time you came back up the driveway, it was raining! While not ideal, it sure...

 

New pet grooming business coming

MIXED--By the time you read this, we may be back to some soggy weather after a supposed dry spell, which is at least happening this Monday morning after some heavy fog. Of course those cloudy days often wind up a bit damp, but if we get any break...

 

Mule teams have been doing well

ANOTHER WET ONE--As I begin my column, we are once again looking at the possibilty for some local flooding, so I hope everyone gathered what they needed just in case we have our "usual" underwater spots which prevent us from getting to the store. As...

 

Were you prepared for the weather?

NOT NICE!--I'm pretty sure that our snow/sleet/wind event last weekend lasted much longer than a whole lot of people wanted it to, as while that first batch of snow is pretty, after that, it can just wind up being a real nuisance. Besides, when you...

 

Fairgrounds flea market canceled

ALL PREPARED?--If weather apps are to be believed, by the time you read this, you may be playing in some "white stuff" as snow was to begin falling on Wednesday, and continue for several days with nighttime temperatures in the teens. We all know...

 

Get ready for Valentine's Day

SOGGY--As this week begins, it's definitely a cloudy, drippy and dreary day, which might be the forecast for most of the week, while the weekend is looking a little nicer, but then, we all know how these forecasts can change on a dime. One can hope...

 

WAAG fundraiser set for Saturday

MIXED--At the end of last week, we woke up to thick frost and temperatures in the low 20s in West Valley, so that certainly meant another log on the fire for those who use wood heat! Sunday it was back to cool but damp conditions with a moment or...

 

Local family lost everything to fire

NICE START--As this week begins, it's actually a pretty decent day after a somewhat cloudy and dampish beginning but the sun popped out this Sunday and gave us a very nice break. Last week, I turned in my column prior to all wind and rain that crashe...

 

Time to get the hip waders out?

NICE, THEN SOGGY--It was certainly nice to enjoy some sunshine this last Friday and Saturday, as it was a much needed break that gave the high waters time to recede and gave all the outdoor lovers a time to stroll or bike in some dry conditions,...

 

May we all enjoy a healthy new year

IT'S A NEW YEAR--It's my first column of 2021, wow, we made it! We may be into a new year, but we still have the same ole weather, wet and wild! We even ended the first Saturday in January with a heck of a rain event, which also came along with some...

 

Christmas was quiet; crab feed canceled

OFF AND ON--As I begin this column, we're having some of that mixed weather where it sunshines one minute and rains the next and sometimes it does both at the same time! It looks like we are still in for some showers this week but it is mixed with...

 

Happy Holidays to one and all

WET AND WINDY--As this weekend before Christmas winds down, we are having some very wet and windy conditions, so in other words, normal weather just before the Christmas holiday. It seems when we all want to do that last minute shopping, the weather...

 

Light display Friday and Saturday

COLD AND SOGGY--We ended last weekend with a very frozen Saturday morning in West Valley, and I have to say, I was a little surprised to have to really work at getting my frozen mailbox opened that morning! Now of course, we're into a stretch of...

 

Only fifteen days left until Christmas

LOOKING SOGGY--After a few days of some clear, sunny days, albeit cold, it looks like we're in for a drizzly one this week. If the forecast comes true you may have to resign yourself to use that umbrella more often and keep the boots by the door! Of...

 

Santa's coming; please shop local

COOL BUT DRY--We started out the first of this week with a nippy 32 degrees but at least it was dry. That's not the case with how the work week is starting however, as it's a bit soggy. We are supposed to have a fairly dry week though, so that will...

 

New business to open in Grays River

PRETTY WET--The beginning of last week was pretty doggone wet and we were happy to have a bit of dryness show up on Thursday so our "lakes" could recede from our fields before the next batch of rain comes falling down! With the King Tides, we saw a...

 

New restrictions in place statewide

NASTY OUT--As this work week begins, we've got lots of rain to add to what we had over the weekend and those puddles have turned into "lakes" and with king tides this past weekend, the streams are full and fields have gotten even fuller and I think t...
