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...

 

Fair Flea Market will be held this Saturday

BRRR--As the skies cleared this past weekend, the temperatures took a nose-dive and we wound up freezing here in West Valley, so I hope you had your hoses drained and your faucets covered and all your plants insulated from the cold as well. Of...

 

Lions Club food drive will be this Saturday

NICE WEEKEND--We ended October last Saturday and it was very nice and sunny during the daytime, albeit a bit nippy in the evenings, but that's okay, as at least it wasn't wet and nasty out, which made it much better for all those trick or treaters...

 

Lots of Halloween events scheduled

BRRR--As this last week of October started, we woke up to a very cold, frosty white but clear morning on Sunday and it was just 27 degrees. I am thankful we had power because it would have been even colder in a hurry! I heard that some folks in...

 

Time to pick up items from FOS auction

SOGGY BEGINNING--As this week begins, it is definitely a dripping, dreary, sunless day! It's one of those days when the dampness seems to sink into your bones and it's time to add that extra layer of clothes or crank up the heat as the whole house...

 

Ten Saturdays left before Christmas

NOT SO NICE--This past Saturday night was really a wild one out here in West Valley, with thunder and lightning and windy conditions hitting us late that night and into early Sunday morning.Crazy times and loud too! Some neighboring fields turned...

 

FOS virtual auction set for October 9-18

CHANGE IS COMING--This past weekend wasn't too bad although Saturday was pretty cloudy with a bit of light mist in the evening hours in West Valley but Sunday was pretty decent and we even managed to see the sunshine. However, forecasters are saying...

 

Sons of Norway to meet October 7

NICE ONE--This week started out with blue sky and sunshine and according to forecasters, it is supposed to be nice all week long. That means September will end with sunshine and October will begin with sunshine and very warm temperatures, so that's...

 

FOS auction sneak peek on October 1

BEEN A BIT WILD--Last Thursday evening we were treated to a thunder and lightning storm by Mother Nature and it was pretty darn impressive as it lit up the night sky and rattled our windows! I know some folks lost power out Pillar Rock way, but...

 

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...
