MIXED BAG. We had a bit of everything this past week so if you didn't like the weather, you just had to wait a bit and it would change. We had downpours and wind, and we had some impressive lightning with some deafening thunder, followed by some sun...

 

Easter eggs, Redmen opens, Hook the hawg

NICE WEEKEND Well, I hope you were able to get out and enjoy the sunny days. I have to say as I begin this column, it is foggy and I swear those ships tooting their foghorns are about ready to come into my back yard. The sun should be showing up...

 

READY TO SPRING AHEAD?

DOUBLE HOLIDAY MONTH. I always think of March as being St. Patrick’s Day month and April as being Easter month, but that’s not how it is this year. We’ve got St. Patty’s Day on March 17, which is a Sunday this year, but Easter is on the last day of...

 

GARAGE SALE, FLEA MKT., BINGO

COLD AND WET/SNOW. At the beginning of this work week we've had a mixed bag of weather here in West Valley, as we have seen some sun, some rain and even a bit of snow so it's going to be interesting to see if that snow part becomes more pronounced...

TOILETRY DRIVE. Something new has come up that folks can help out with and that’s a toiletry drive for the students at Wahkiakum High School. Some kids are unable to get the necessities that we all need to keep us clean and comfortable, so we are a...

VALENTINE’S DAY IS OVER! As I write this, I’m looking forward to going out to dinner at one of our local restaurants with friends for Valentine’s Day but of course, by the time you read this, the big holiday will be over. I’m hoping you had a good...

 

Remember the slide of 1990?

CHILLY MORNINGS. This past weekend may have been dry but the late night and early morning hours were certainly not warm as it was below freezing on Saturday and Sunday. We had fog so thick on Sunday morning that you couldn’t see two feet down the r...

 

Bingo, Flea Market at the Fair

PLENTY OF WATER. Well, while we had plenty of water around the area, I was happy that we didn't have any major flooding here in West Valley over the roads and such, so that was a big plus. This week’s forecast shows some dry days and it would sure b...

 

WHO ARE YOU ROOTING FOR?

WET. Well, once again we have come through quite the nasty little snow and ice storm and we are back to rain. The forecast is looking more wet than dry, but I'm hoping we get a break for Sunday and Monday, or else we'll be wading through water...

 

Enough winter yet?

ENOUGH ALREADY! Well, I don't know about you but Ole Man Winter can move along and take all his bitter cold with him. I'm sure we've all had enough of the snow, ice, sleet, bitter winds and nastiness by now, at least I have. Once we get to the point...

 

More snow (and crab)

ARE YOU READY? I was hoping that the frigid, possibly snowy, forecast would have warmed up and all the warnings for the super cold temperatures would have gone away by now, but nope— forecasters are still saying temperatures are going to plummet b...

 

Bingo! Crab Feed! Angels?

A BRAND NEW YEAR. Here we are in 2024, and it seems like 2023 just flew by! Now we will all have to get used to writing 2024 on everything, just when we've gotten used to writing 2023. At any rate, I hope you had a good New Year’s Eve and enjoyed a...

 

Happy New Year!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! As I begin to write, it is actually Christmas Day, a very wet and blustery one, so I hope my power stays on long enough to finish it up and send it in. There is a high wind warning for this evening, so I'm planning on “batting d...

 

Merry Christmas!

BITTER COLD. While my weather app was telling me that I was sitting in mid-forties temperatures this past weekend, the truth of it was that we were experiencing below freezing temperatures with lots of frost everywhere. So they were off just a wee...

 

Shop with a cop a success

PLENTY WET. We had heavy rain this past weekend and, with a little luck, the forecast for drier weather will prevail. While it won't be all dry, it's not supposed to be pouring rain every day either. Fingers crossed! SPECIAL DAYS. Celebrating...

Santa's coming to town

COLD ENOUGH? I guess it depends on where you live, but out in West Valley we were down in the lower twenties this past week and that’s plenty cold for me! It looks like we will be warming up later this week, though, so by the time you read this, i...

 

Wahkiakum Black Friday

WET BEGINNING. As I started this column, it was a gloomy and damp Sunday morning after a very wet and windy Saturday night. Thankfully, by afternoon, we got to see some sunshine; that was a welcome break. By the time you read this, it's supposed to...

 

Walk-n-Knock Saturday

COLD AND WET. Well, if you're like me, the dampness we have had has made your bones ache. It's not just the cooler temperatures, but the feeling that we've been "chilled to the bone" with all that moisture that comes from the fog and the rain and...

 

Lefse making & turkey bingo

PLENTY WET—If you have driven around much lately, you will probably have been driving in the rain, I hope with your headlights on, and you will have seen fields full of water here and there; we had some epic rainfall at the end of last week. This p...

 

Pick up your Star Program application

VERY COLD—Well, I don't know about where you live, but out here in West Valley, we saw temperatures plummet down into the low twenties on both Friday and Saturday nights, and I can tell you that my old bones were not appreciative of such frigid c...

 

Holiday events begin this week

CHILL COMING—It looks like temperatures are going to take a nosedive; we could be in for several days of near- or below-freezing temperatures. One had best prepare if you're out here in the sticks with exposed plumbing! The cold also means extra f...
