Ryderwood News 8.12.15

Recent weather patterns have some of us very happy to live in the Pacific Northwest. Thanks to cool nights and daytime temperatures under 100º, I'm surviving another summer without air conditioning. Rules of thumb: 1. Open windows at night. 2. Use fans (ceiling, furnace, floor and window, exhaust) to increase cool air circulation. 3. Close windows ASAP if the sun comes up early or if 90+º temperatures are predicted. 4. Keep the fans going (except for the exhaust ones) - the air they circulate is still cooler than what is outside.

I thought it was time for another stroll down memory lane. When I was a youngster living in downtown Winlock, I remember the Shoe Store which was owned by Mr. Legat, he fixed all your shoes and always greeted you with a smile. Then there was The Butcher shop which was owned by Mr. Prigmore and Mr. Inman, this was a truly old fashioned butcher shop and they had the best cuts available. And last but not least was the Safeway Grocery store (which was located where the city hall is now). Winlock was a bustling downtown!!
