Halloween events are coming right up

FIRST FREEZE--We must be pretty special here in West Valley, as this past Sunday, Oct. 14, we woke up to temperatures below freezing and everything was very frosty, and very cold! The sunny skies were certainly welcoming though and with temperatures...

 

Another bear sighting in Skamokawa area

LAST WEEK--At the end of last week, it sure poured, as by bedtime on Friday night, we were just shy of an inch and a half of rain that day, so it was a real soaker. Luckily, even though the skies were black in the morning, the rain let up for...

 

New exhitbit to open October 13 at Redmen Hall

WAS GORGEOUS--The weather at the end of the work week last week, was just like Summer, sunny and warm and just plain gorgeous. The weekend began cloudy however and by evening time, we wound up being quite wet. On Sunday we had a little more dampness...

 

Resident's first bear sighting in West Valley

WILD END/BEGINNING--This past Saturday morning our Summer ended wet, wild and windy, as it just poured out here in West Valley and blew a ton of leaves everywhere. While Fall officially came in that afternoon, my calendar said Fall began on Sunday,...

 

Fall begins this Sunday, September 23

NIPPY--We started this work week with some low lying fog and the air temperature was in the 40s, so definitely on the cooler side. Once the fog lifted, it was a very nice, sunny begining to the week. Pleasant temperatures are supposed to be with us...

 

Folk, jazz and blues at Skamokawa Grange Friday

DAMPNESS--We began this past weekend with just a slight bit of wetness falling, and while it wasn't much, it was most welcome. We managed to dry out again on Sunday but then we got some more rain drops on Monday, which really soaked things pretty goo...

 

Wine tasting and auction Saturday

GORGEOUS--As we started the week, which was in the midst of our three day Labor Day weekend, it was truly gorgeous out! You can't beat blue skies, sunshine and mid-70s temperatures, which are just a perfect equation I think, as it's nice but not too...

 

WHS football begins September 1

DAMP BEGINNING--As the week began Sunday morning, we had some light rainfall which was most welcomed by all those who received it. When it falls real lightly after a long, dry spell, it's really good as it gets a chance to soak in and not just run...

 

Still time to donate school supplies

SMOKY START--As this week began, it was a pretty smoky Sunday morning, and forecasters say that we'll have more of that until mid-week. When it's smoky, it's a good idea to limit our time outside and if we have to be out there, then buy a really...

 

110th Wahkiakum Fair to be held August 16-18

MOISTURE--When I went to bed last Friday night, it was lightly misting out here in West Valley. When I woke up, it was good and wet outside, and then the skies really opened up and we got some real ra...

 

Open mic night Friday at Skamokawa Grange

NICE WEEKEND--The light raindrops we had at the end of last week gave way to sunshine this past Saturday, which was just in time for the many activities taking place in the area, so I'm sure that made everybody happy. More sun and dry weather is...

 

Art and boat festivals will fill the weekend

HOT ENOUGH?--When it's 76 degrees by 10 a.m., here in West Valley, I know it's going to be a warm one. I am sure the heat lovers are rejoicing but I opted to hide in the basement this last Sunday, as I had gotten toasty enough just trying to get the...

 

Wooden boat festival is next weekend

PERFECT--The weather for Bald Eagle Day just couldn't have been more perfect. As this week begins, we've got some heat arriving but at least Sunday morning began with some heavy, moist cloud cover to help dampen things a bit before it got sunny and w...

 

Bald Eagle Days will be here this weekend

WARM ENOUGH?--This past weekend was plenty toasty for many of us, although I heard that right along the coastline, it was much cooler, which is probably why I saw a ton of traffic headed that way! When we are in the upper 80s and low 90s, it's way...

 

Challenge of Champions event Friday, July 20

SURPRISE--As this past weekend began, we had a bit of a surprise, as we woke up to wetness on Saturday morning and had some off and on misty times throughout the morning. While I appreciated the unexpected watering, it was not appreciated by those...

 

Bald Eagle Days are approaching quickly

WEEKEND--This past weekend wasn't the best one we've had, but it wasn't too bad either. We saw a few, very light sprinkles on Saturday morning but for the most part, it was dry and kind of humid, so one could still get out there and work in the yard...

 

Use extreme caution with fireworks this year

NICE WEEKEND--While we ended last Friday with a few sprinkles here in West Valley, it wasn't much, and the clouds on Saturday morning cleared off and gave a perfect day for the Kite Festival at Vista Park. It also made shopping at the Puget Island...

 

Today is the first day of summer

SUMMER HAS BEGUN--The hot weather showed up just in time to welcome Summer, although if it gets as hot as they say it might, I won't be overly thrilled, as anything over 75 seems a bit too much for me. But the way forecasts keep changing, who knows,...

 

WHS graduation to be held Friday, June 15

MUCH WETTER--Compared to the week before, this past weekend was much wetter. In spite of some sunny times, the rainy times definitely made their presence known, as it would absolutely come down in buckets, which pretty much destroyed what flowers I...

 

Final car show was a great success

HALF TERRIFIC--This past weekend we got one perfect day, and one "so-so" day. With some of our states experiencing wildfires already, I have to say, the raindrops that started on Sunday afternoon, were really a blessing I thought, as were the ones...

 

Final car show will be Saturday at fairgrounds

WEEKEND WAS NICE--The traffic was a bit heavy on Friday, but it sure was a nice day to start out this past Memorial Day weekend. Saturday saw some more clouds move in, but no rain, so it was perfect for doing some yard work, and Sunday was gorgeous....

 

Mule golfer and baseball teams are champs

NICE START--This week began with some nice weather and I think the sunny and breezy conditions are just great, as it's not too hot out there while we catch up on those yard chores. While my rhodies are all popping out, the grass popped up as well,...

 

Great White Tail Run Saturday at JBH Refuge

HALF OVER--Here we are, half past the middle of May so I guess you know, we should be experiencing a lot of May flowers due to April showers, and even May showers, so I hope you're enjoying the blooms and not commiserating with some of us, who really...

 

Celebrate Mother's Day this Sunday

WEATHER--It was pretty nice at the beginning of last week, and then we cooled down a bit, with even a few showers falling here and there, but I was still able to get some flower bed work done, so I hope you got to enjoy the sunny times. This past...

 

Museum opens Saturday 1-4 p.m., for the season

WET START--As this week begins, it is taking turns being wet and being sunny. It's hard to do a lot of outside things with the "yo-yo" weather, but it beats the steady downpours we'd been having earlier this month. If forecasters are correct, we...
