  1. Boiler Bay has good waves. Depoe Bay is a fun place to watch for resident gray whales. I enjoy looking for agates and have found good ones at Fogarty Creek and at the south end of Lincoln City near Moe's.
  2. Several hydrangeas in my yard have wilted flowers even with frequent watering. We have even put out umbrellas to shade them where possible. It is just bad timing with many of them just beginning to flower. I have also lost several apple from my espalier trees due to the extreme sun causing browning of the fruit. Just an incredible heatwave!
  3. Which area? It is interesting to look at projected temps for the next couple of days for the NW coastal towns. It's anywhere from 100 at Forks and Astoria, to 70s and even 60s from the central OR coast south. All due to location of the high pressure I'm sure. I imagine it is going to be very crowded out there at the coast!
  4. Do we need to check on SilverFallsAndrew? Haven't heard from him in a while!
  5. I think he left sometime in mid April. My brother works at KOMO and texted me back in April that he was leaving. Fox is starting a streaming weather service and he joined them as Senior Digital Content Producer.
  6. Scott doesn't work for KOMO anymore. He is now with FOX weather and Q13.
  7. Sometimes. Fred Meyer has good plants and more reasonably priced than local nurseries. My wife does probably half of our grocery shopping at that FM and the rest at Costco.
  8. The 19th and Stevens Fred Meyer! That's my neighborhood store.
  9. Go Beavers! I graduated from there with a B.S. in Horticultural Science. Of course that was 30 years ago, but it's still a great school.
  10. My boss who lives on the Key Peninsula said it was snowing at his house around 3 PM today.
  11. Hope it works out for you. Such a beautiful area. I was at the Nubble Lighthouse a couple of years ago.
  12. We flew into San Luis Obispo and spent some time in Cambria. Then drove north on 101 because of the road closure north of Ragged Point on highway 1. Staying in Monterey now and went south to Big Sur today. Spectacular scenery! Really enjoyed the 17 Mile Drive yesterday.
  13. Yes, bad year for me from tree pollen. When I was younger it seemed that only grass pollen bothered me. But now March and part of April is miserable and grass pollen doesn't bother me as much.
