Sleepin' thru the Earthquake - 01/30/09 11:29 AM
My husband just got back from walking the dogs on the trail by our house & said one of the other walkers got wakened up this morning by an earthquake! Of course my response was "Earthquake, I didn't feel any earthquake - was he sure?" But hopping on the internet I see that yep, I apparently slept right thru one! A 4.5 or so earthquake to the northwest of Seattle about 5:30 AM. I'm surprised we did sleep thru it as usually our dogs are nervous and restless about anything shaking the world! But apparently no damage reported so that's good. The (1 comments)
Thurston County is Loaded with Colleges! - 01/22/09 06:09 PM
The vitality of Thurston County is tremendously enhanced by the presence in the community of FOUR colleges! We are lucky enough to be able to complete a bachelor's degree, a master's degree in quite a few disciplines, learn a trade, enhance our leisure time with fun new learning, improve our fitness, enjoy wonderful performing arts and events, and involve all ages with learning and fun - without leaving the county! South Puget Sound Community College (www.spscc.ctc.edu) is a 2 year school offering associate degrees in arts, science, elementary education, general studies, business or technical arts. Many programs are specifically designed to (3 comments)
Chehalis Western Trail rocks! - 01/19/09 06:23 PM
I think one of the wonderful recreational things in the Olympia area is the huge expanse of paved walking trails that have been created along former Weyerhauser log transport railroad lines. We have lived immediately adjacent to the trail now in two different houses (yes, we chose the land to build our current home on in no small part because it was next to the trail). The opportunity to walk, jog, exercise dogs, ride bikes, roller blade, ride horses - any non-motorized vehicle travel basically, is just amazing! My favorite section starts at Martin Way and runs north for approximately 6.2 (0 comments)
Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr - 01/18/09 03:36 PM
There will be a wonderful free celebration happening in Olympia on Monday January 19th to honor Martin Luther King Jr. It is at the Washington Center for Performing Arts at 4:00 PM and will feature singing, dancing, music and other performances. I have attended this in other years and thoroughly enjoyed the event - but this year I think it may be an extra special event, coming as it does just one day before the historic inauguration of Barack Obama.

Local Knowledge is Important - 01/17/09 06:53 PM
Sometimes the local knowledge of a real estate agent can save some grief for buyers (and sellers). I was thinking about this the last couple of days after first an out of state seller asked me to go make sure their house hadn't been affected by the floods they had been reading about, and then an appraiser said they have also been being deluged with requests to make sure homes hadn't been flooded since an earlier appraisal was completed. We did certainly have some areas in and near Thurston County experience flooding in heavy rains this month which came right on (1 comments)
