This we like

Another successful festival weekend in the valley.

This time, it was Rock of the Woods and Moonfest setting a shining example of how local festivals should be run under the hot sun.

Next up is the biggie, SunFest. This weekend will thoroughly put the valley on the country music map if it wasn’t already with an appearance from Tim McGraw.

 

This we don’t

It’s OK to have a prolonged spell of hot weather during the summer, but it would be nice if Mother Nature mixed it up a little bit more.

These long periods of dry weather we’ve been having in July and August — and even into September and October — are causing obvious water and other problems.

Especially since there was virtually no snow pack this year, the long-term effects are not desirable.
