What Makes Ridgefield So Special? #11

Gail Alexander posted on Next Door that Allene Wodaege had re-injured her back and needed an electric reclining chair as it was too painful to use a bed. Within hours of the posting a chair had been found and the problem was taken care of.

Good work Ridgefield – we work together!

Second Sundays at the Refuge

Thought for the Week

As I pulled weeds and sifted compost in my yard today, I kept thinking how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful place, with stimulating weather, mason bees humming as they flew in and out building their nests, people out for a stroll, a friend stopping by to chat as she bicycled down the street. I didn’t even mind the hot rodder who guns his engine as he drives by.

Life is good for this 83 year old!

Woody Debris in Lake River

This morning’s incoming tide carried  a stream of woody debris in Lake River. The woody material likely was deposited in Lake River and the Columbia from the flooding we had in February. The high water this week set a lot of it in motion.  A lot of debris jammed up against the fire department boat-house and this morning personnel were working to push it away from the entrance.   The tide crested about 10:30 AM and then Lake river should reverse flow.  The tide will come in again Friday morning and Lake River and the Columbia should crest at just over 13 feet tomorrow morning,  Then, the rivers should begin to drop.  For a few days, we can expect this debris to create jams at  the marina and the boat launch.
