For those that thirst for more...

... I've started a tumblr micro blog for stuff that doesn't end up on here and has been taken on my phone, aptly titled from my fone. I make no promises as to the quality, as some will be good, some will be crap, and some will just be crap I like. Figured since I had a ridiculous number of photo apps on the phone that I needed a home for that too. I'm also adding a link up top to it if you wanna check back from time to time.

Snow days (and nights), Chinook, Ilwaco, Seaview, Wa.

Snow is something that is rare around these parts, and when it does it brings with it many things good and bad. Like slippery roads that lead to rollover accidents into water. Or sledding on a school holiday (boy the timing on this worked out great, free snow day!)

The kids were excited as always to see the snow and got to get some play time in it before it started to melt today. However, according to the weather report there should be more falling really soon.

And McKenzie is many things. One of here secret talents? Snowball assassin.

On Saturday morning you could feel the snow coming up at Cape Disappointment lighthouse during the memorial ceremony in honor of the Triumph episode 51 years ago.

Hunka, hunka burnin' stuff, Klipsan Beach, Wa.

Saturday night this expensive RV ($140,000 value) went up in flames about 10 feet from this Klipsan home. Fire District 1 did an awesome job dealing with the blaze and saving the home from any damage.

In honor of Elvis' birthday, the Golden Sands retirement center celebrated with a special lunch which included a visit from the king himself (kitchen staff Ben Reardon dressed in a very form fitting Vegas-era costume). Despite having never done an Elvis impersonation before, Reardon did keep the ladies giggling and happy as they ate their fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches, serenading to them, giving hugs and dancing with a few.

New stuff from the new year, Long Beach, Seaview, Ilwaco, Wa.

Well, here it is 2012 for six days and no posts? Well, here's a few things from the new year.And all in color?!?!

Tuesday night a woman wanted to get a closer look at the ocean, but apparently didn't notice when the sea started washing up around her car till it was too late. She got out and walked down to a tow yard to get help. Meanwhile, fire and surf rescue had to check it out, so this is Ness and Doug investigating.

We had our first big wind storm of the year over the weekend, here's me feature hunting without a great deal of luck.

The old Oddfellows building in downtown Ilwaco is falling apart and has been condemned but it seems that multiple groups want it, according to a story in next weeks paper. This is a view through one of the street level windows.

And finally, The Grizz, joining me on another journey. I love the fact that I don't have to talk to myself in the car anymore.
