Ryderwood News 1.13.16

I crested the hill going out of Vader on Sunday to see clear blue skies, the valley full to the brim with white fog and Mt. St. Helens sticking her brilliant white head above it all. Picture perfect, but I didn't stop... The rest of this week looks like rain almost every day. According to my weather-station guy, December had twice as much rain as all off September, October and November combined. Sure hope it helps us get through a dry summer.
