Is Skagit County Prepared for a Flood or an Earthquake? - 01/01/08 03:47 PM
In 2007 Washington was pounded pretty hard with rain.... There was devistating flooding in Southern Washington that destroyed a lot of homes and closed I-5 for days.In 2006 Washington was pounded pretty hard by wind storms... I remember that at one point, over a million people were without power.Fortunately Skagit County was let off pretty easy by mother nature in both of these storms. Skagit County had damage, but we were not devistated by the storms like other areas were.... In short, we were lucky!What will we face in 2008??Skagit Count Commissioner Sharon Dillon, District 3 wrote a very good article (0 comments)
Next Year Keep Vista Away From the Space Needle! - 01/01/08 02:29 AM

The 8 minute show lasted about 12 minutes because the fireworks kept stopping, the music played with no fireworks, the fireworks went off sporatically with and without music, and finally some guy just went around manually setting them off.... Oops! At least the 5 coordinated marriage proposals went off without a hitch... well that is except for the guy that dropped the engagement ring in the grass... All the women said Yes! The TV commentators kept saying it is a computer glitch... I guess they'll have to keep Windows Vista away from (2 comments)
