Are You Storm-Ready?

Are you ready for winter weather?  Check the Take Winter By Storm information page for ideas on how to prepare and what emergency supplies to keep on hand.  An idea for your family gift list is a recharging device which can be plugged in the car, to recharge a cell phone or operate a laptop or Smartphone.  Though it is unlikely that Seattle will have the experience of being dumped-on by six feet of snow as recently happened in Buffalo, New York, it is always wise to make preparations in case you “can’t go anywhere.”

Weather is predicted to turn cold this weekend of November 28-30 with possible snow flurries.

Hunter’s for the Holidays

The holiday sales opening at Hunter Tree Farm is a Wedgwood tradition of more than fifty years.  Several generations of the Hunter family now participate in the annual tree sales at 7744 35th Ave NE, next to the Wedgwood Post Office.  The Hunter Tree Farm holiday sales is open from November 28 through December 24.

Hunter’s have assembled an array of holiday decorating ideas including ornaments, wreaths, garlands, boughs, cones, holly, mistletoe AND trees, of course, in a variety of types and sizes.  And don’t forget to pick up a sturdy tree stand, as well.

The Hunter Helpers will net your tree and help load it into your car or tie it on top.  Stop by, enjoy the lights and take in a big deep fresh breath of evergreen at Hunter Tree Farm.

Piper’s Creek Salmon Celebration

Piper’s Creek is the urban watershed which flows westward through Carkeek Park into Puget Sound.  At this time of year salmon are easily visible in the creek and it is an ideal time to bring children for a close-up look.

On Friday, November 28 from 11 AM to 1 PM the Piper’s Creek Salmon Celebration will feature food, hot drinks, music and a scavenger hunt for kids.  Salmon Stewards will be available to answer questions.
