Open mic night at Skamokawa Grange

ENOUGH ALREADY--I think I can safely say that we have all had our fill of April showers, so let's hope that the forecast of a couple of dry days this week came true, so we could dry out a little bit before the next wet system comes in. Better yet,...

 

New exhibit at Redmen Hall opens Friday

SOGGY & BREEZY--At the end of last Saturday, we were sitting here looking at two inches of rain on our weather meter, so it was definitely a wet one. While some areas got hit with some strong winds, we here in West Valley had some gusts but nothing...

 

Welcome to new mail carrier, Shelby Hoiland

SOME GOOD/SOME BAD--Thank goodness we had a nice day on Saturday after some morning clouds, as it made the Lions Club Easter Egg Hunt a big hit, and all the doings at the Wahkiakum County Fairgrounds were much more enjoyable as well. With my weather...

 

Hook the Hawg fishing derby Friday & Saturday

BRR--This past weekend saw some nippy temperatures, and even some snow in higher elevations, so it looks like Winter is not quite ready to give up to Spring! With a few dry days scheduled for this week, I'm hoping that they materialize, as it will...

 

Open mic night at Grange Hall Sunday

NOT SO GREAT--I suppose it depended on where you were, but as this week began, Sunday was definitely on the wet side in West Valley. We did have our dry moments, but for the most part, it was damp. Saturday was a bit better with more sun than rain,...

 

Happy St. Patrick's Day to one and all

GORGEOUS--In spite of some cold nights, the sunshine that shone through my windows on Saturday and Sunday was certainly welcomed! It was even into the 60s, which was a far cry from those cold, wet, windy and nippy 30 and 40 degree temperatures we've...

 

Vintage & Antique Sale on Friday and Saturday

NOT BAD--After a chilly start, our last weekend didn't start out too bad, as that blue sky and sunshine was truly a welcome sight. We even got up into the 50's! Of course, we couldn't have two perfect days in a row, but at least part of Sunday was...

 

FOS vintage sale runs March 9 & 10

WEEKEND ENDS--We certainly had a couple of batches of heavy snow around West Valley this past week, but at least when I woke up Saturday morning, the sun was shining and temperatures were above freezing and that certainly was a huge improvement over...

 

Winter not over, with low temperatures and snow

SNOW RETURNED--We woke up to a light layer of snow in West Valley this past Sunday morning, but places just a bit higher in elevation saw several inches of snow come down. KM had several inches and the Beaver Creek area saw a good amount too, which w...

 

Chamber Crab & Oyster feed at Norse Hall on Saturday

NICE--We started last weekend with some very chilly temperatures, below freezing on Saturday and Sunday morning, but the sunshine that followed was nice to see in place of the cloudy, often drizzly day we had on Friday, at least out our way! This...

 

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone, near and far

WET BEGINNING--If fog and drizzle are your friends, then you really liked how this week began, as Sunday was a gloomy, foggy, drizzly kind of day, which was just right for those who needed an excuse to sit inside all day in their sweats and watch...

 

Valentine Diamond Dinner Saturday at Fairgrounds

NEW MONTH--We may have a new month but it looks like we have the same weather; wet and blustery, with a side of slides and a dash of snow in the hills. Of course, if you were traveling over the mountains this past weekend, you might have gotten into...

 

There is still time to donate Christmas items to Kiwanis

WEATHER--It was quite a weekend as it was wet and pretty doggone windy too. Thankfully the last half of Sunday wasn't too bad and we got to dry out a little and see calmer weather just prior to the big football games! But the end of last week, it was...

 

Lasagna dinner is Saturday at fairgrounds

SUNSHINE--I think we all agree that the sunshine last Saturday and Sunday was certainly a welcome break from the dreary rain we'd been dealing with. Of course, this was a three day weekend, and it figures that we could only have two of the three be...

 

Open mic at Skamokawa Grange Saturday, 3 p.m.

DREARY--This past week has been one of a little sun, a little rain and a bit of fog, with warmer temperatures. By the time you read this, we may even see a couple of dry days, but I'm not holding my breath! However, if it shows up, I hope you'll be...

 

Blood drive to take place in Cathlamet on Friday

NEW YEAR--This is my first column in another new year; I can hardly believe it! I hope you ended the last one with a lot of fun and merriment and begin this one on a high note, as last year seemed like it was a pretty rough one for many. One thing...

 

Get ready, the new year is just around the corner

A REAL MIX--On Christmas weekend, it depended where you were as to what kind of weather you had, but for those in the areas where snow was falling, they were totally excited to have a white Christmas! Seattle had the first white Christmas in 10...

 

Christmas weekend is nearly upon us

GLOOMY--Our freezing weather finally released its grip on us, and the rainy weather showed back up, but they say we may have some dry weather coming and we'll be dipping down in the 20s again! Of course, the other forecaster I heard said that if a...

 

Redmen Hall to close for winter on December 18

COLD ENOUGH?--We've dried out recently but with that dryness came some bone-chilling temperatures here in our neck of the woods. I am not a lover of the 20-something temps but I have loved the blue sky and sunshine that warmed things up to the 40s!...

 

Flea market at fairgrounds will be Saturday, December 9

COLD!--As I begin this column, we're just at 32 here Monday morning. Forecasters say we will be fairly dry this week, which almost always winds up meaning "dry but very cold" in the evening hours. Having some dry time would be nice, as I'm sure...

 

Happy Thanksgiving to all in Wahkiakum and beyond

BIG DAY--It's almost turkey time! For you locals who get your paper prior to Thanksgiving, I know that all the cooks are probably in the kitchen, whipping up pumpkin pies, or maybe pecan pies and all those awesome side dishes like candied yams and...

 

Fair Turkey Bingo at Wendt Multi-purpose room on Friday

IT'S WET & WILD!--Here we are, heading into the third week of November and it's wet and windy and very fall-like. I hope you all survived the wind storm that hit Sunday night and part of Monday. We lost power, but I was totally expecting that, but...

 

Saturday is Veterans Day and Fair Flea Market

CHILLY OUT--Last week ended quite wet and a bit chilly, and for some areas to the north of us, as well as in the mountains, the "white stuff" was falling! Classmate, Greg Lloyd, said it was snowing pretty good up there in Everett and others said it...

 

Walk 'n' Knock Food Drive is set for this Saturday

MIX OF WEATHER--We have had some gorgeous fall days, and we've had some "so-so" ones like this past Sunday, which was cloudy and gloomy and dampish, but it wasn't pouring down rain at least. Monday was awesome but then our temperatures are going to...

 

Lots of Halloween events taking place on weekend

WILD ONE!--We sure had ourselves a nasty, wet and windy begining to the weekend, as Saturday was just horrible and by the evening, even worse. Many people lost power, which in our case, was caused by a big tree that came down and took out the...
