Museum extends hours through October

NICE START--As this third week in September begins, it’s a pretty nice day and looks to be until the end of the week when we could possibly get a shower. Last Friday saw a pretty substantial “shower” for a much longer period of time than was...

 

Lots of donation opportunities ahead

DAMPNESS--This week begins with a bit of moisture in West Valley and a big sigh of relief from all my plants and brown grass I’m sure! We started this Sunday with just a smidgen of rain in the morning hours but by evening time we had some “real r...

 

Farm 2 Fleece Fiber show this weekend

Last Farmers Market of season this Friday

WARM WEEK--As the week begins, we’re seeing very warm temperatures again with my thermometers looking at temps in the low to mid-80s and that’s plenty for me. However, temps could rise a little higher just prior to the paper coming out and then...

 

Weekend marred by fire, tragic drownings

STILL TOASTY--Maybe I’m in the minority but I have had enough of the heat wave thing already! We are supposed to cool down some by midweek, which would be nice as it’s in the mid-90s at the beginning of this week, and that’s too hot for me!...

 

Wahkiakum County Fair is fast approaching

STILL TOASTY--As I begin to write this column, it’s still in the mid-80s but we may see temps in the 70s during the week before heading right back up come the weekend, so I hope all you sun lovers are enjoying this dry spell. A few days ago, they...

Careful, burn ban is in effect countywide

Bald Eagle Days are this weekend

Three day weekend to celebrate July 4

HOT ONE--After complaining about all the dreary wet days, we’ve finally got some hot ones, and we’re complaining a bit about those too, as it’s just too hot! Well, at least for a lot of us, as when you’re in the upper 90s, that’s just a...

Lots of reunions being planned for summer

New exhibit at Redmen Hall begins Saturday

SOGGY--This past Saturday, when we hoped it would be nice and dry for the car show, we actually had over an inch and a quarter of rain by early evening; a real “sog-fest." This Sunday began wet and breezy but at least it stopped raining for awhile...

 

June has a lot of activities scheduled

Memorial Day to be on Monday, May 30

DECENT BEGINNING--I’m beginning this column on Sunday, and it’s starting out fairly decent. Then again, as we saw on Saturday, the sunny day can quickly become a wet one, complete with hail so we’re still dealing with this crazy Spring weather....

 

Mud wrestling at fairgrounds Saturday

STILL CHILLY/DAMP--The first half of May has certainly been on the damper side of things, which has been fairly disappointing. We had such heavy rain squalls on Sunday, that it took out all reception from the satellite, and of course, really hammered...

 

Flea market Saturday at fairgrounds

FAIRLY WET--As I begin this column, the sun is actually shining but there have definitely been some wet moments to the day, and from the looks of it, we’ve got more of that kind of weather headed our way. So, while we may see some dry days now and...

 

Woman's Club Pie and Cupcake Social Friday

MIXED BAG--This past weekend wasn’t too bad compared to other ones and to other places who saw much more rain than we did in West Valley, so I was happy for the sunshine we received. Even this Monday started out a bit drippy but the blue skies...
