• We were trying to figure out how to clear our driveway back when we first got the big snow. We looked down the driveway and what to out wondering eyes should appear but our neighbor Dustin Dennis in a new (to him) road grader. Over the years, Dusty has done a fine job for us and we appreciate his efforts on our behalf. He lives on Sleepy Hollow…[Read more]

  • A friend that lives on Staats Road let us know that he had identified a River Otter that has taken up residence in the pond that is near the intersection of Snowden Road and Staats Roads. The otter seems to be frequenting the east end. Great binocular viewing.

    • I highly recommend Ashlie. I board my two dogs at her place all the time. They love her!!

    • Ashlie just washed my two dogs. They came back with tails wagging and sweet smelling.

    • Hello Everyone.

    “I found this sweetheart [chocolate lab] on Snowden Road, just south of Acme. I was on my way to board my dog at Happy Tails so that’s where she is now. Anyone recognize her?” (This comes from Jenn Sharp who said, “Carrie Benson posted this on White Salmon Happenings.”) htt…[Read more]

    • “A chocolate lab was found near acme road and has been taken to happy trails for safe keeping. If you know anyone missing a pup let them know.” from nextdoor.com

  • Update: This is Kevin Steven’s dog which would be down between the Y at Snowden-Bates Rd. by the Fire Station and the bottom of Locke Hill. Basically under the BPA Power Lines. She looks like a mid-smallish brown & black Collie type dog. So call if see. 509-493-2246.

  • Daughter just posted a missing dog along Snowden. Looks like a brown & black longish hair sm-mid size border collie. Named Sally and belongs to Kevin. Don’t know either, but someone up here may. Let me know if you see her 509-493-2246 and I will contact my daughter. Thanks.

  • Looking for the local dowser, as well as recommendations on the two well drillers in the area- M< and Schroder. It's time for us to bite the bullet.
    Thanks!
    Jenn

    • I’ve been pleased with MK. Our property had an existing well that MK drilled when we bought it about 15 years ago. A couple of years ago, we decided to test the water, which MK did promptly, efficiently, and for free.

      • We’ve used MK Drilling. Not sure about dowsing ???, but we do believe in local knowledge. Which MK has. They do a walk over your property with you and discuss what they about the geology a bit. They offer only suggestions. You will make the final decision on placement because there are no guarantees. They will quote a $ for everything per foot…[Read more]

    • A old neighbor of mind hired a dowser years ago. I should say, the wife did. The husband made a guess that the dowser would use their “magical powers” to pick a spot in line with the well of the neighbors to the left and to the right. And in fact, that’s exactly that’s the spot the dowser picked. I’m a card carrying member of The Skeptic…[Read more]

  • Found out today that people on Acme Rd. Lost their dog last night. It is a new dog to them, they just got it. A collie. I think they said that their address is 225 Acme. Please look out for their fog!

  • We have lost our person that does our plowing when needed. Is there anyone out there that can plow a hilly area? He used to use a pay loader or a grader, but these may not be needed except in large snows or long snowy times. Reach us here or at 493-1592. Thanks!!

    • We are also looking for a back up person. We have a 1/4 mile driveway that is steep which also needs the heavy equipment with heavier snowfall. Our contact is: 503.516.6535 for Sandi, 509.310.3189 for Steve. Thanks!

    • We gave up relying on others to show up to plow the driveway. Stranded twice in my own driveway! We bought a snowblower for our flat driveway but our neighbors bought a small tractor and use that on their steep driveway. Good luck!

    I thought I retired 3 years ago from having studio sales in my home, but I have way too much art glass packed away. Please join me for a casual mini art sale on Sat & Sun Dec 8 & 9 from 10am until 4pm at 161 Tunnel Road. Jewelry, home decor, gifts and more. I’d love to find new homes for my work, something sparkly & affordable for all!

  • The group I belong to is showing their paintings at the White Salmon Library. Come out and see what we do, and maybe join us for the fun and learning of painting!

  • We’re trying to put things to bed around the property and are needing a couple extra pairs of hands in the form of day labor starting tomorrow, the 7th thru Sunday the 11th. $15/hour for help with burn piles and/or some light carpentry work. Feel free to text if you’re interested. 503-754-4134. Were about 7 miles up Snowden Rd. Thanks! Jenn and Eric

  • Hello all, I just wanted to put kind of an add out: I am 18 and I live with my aunt here on Snowden. I am looking for some side work as a babysitter or even pet sitting (I know that’s way different from each other) I live with a 3 year old and I have had many years of experience taking care of any ago child. If you have this kind of work please l…[Read more]

  • If you’re in Hood River during November, I hope you’ll stop by the HR library to see a selection of my photography. Gorge sunsets from the top of Burdoin, waterfalls, wildlife, birds & more. The show will move to Made in the Gorge in December.

  • Anyone know where we can gather some walnuts?

  • We hear the dog barking and we are at Sleepy Hollow & Snowden cut-off. We have been having a nocturnal animal visitor and thought it was likely a Coon since there had been quite a bit of digging in the flower bed. We set the live trap last evening thinking to relocate it. However, this morning, there was a very upset, dark grey and fat cat. We…[Read more]

    • Hi Jim, I suspect that gray cat might belong to the Georges. Speaking of digging holes: about 10-12 days ago, I was walking up my drive way and saw newly hole that was deep and about 1 ft across. As I got closer, I realized it was an underground wasp nest that had been raided! It ripped out the comb walls and left them on the top edges. We think…[Read more]

      • I”m more inclined to think it was a bear if it was an underground wasp nest — they love to eat the larvae and seem impervious to stings and bites. If a smaller hole, it might have been a skunk (they do the same thing). I’ve never seen signs of a badger in the area (Staats Road). There’s Badger Peak (and lake) up out of Cougar but I’ve never…[Read more]

        • aha! I thought it might have been bear but then the badger idea came up. I have not seen any in this area either. I do know that some folks in Underwood believe they have seen fishers on their property in the past year.

    • Hi Neighbor! We have not seen badger. However, we have seeN several weasel the past few months. Along with them, there was a TOTAL reduction of squirrels in the back yard. With your BIG CAT report, we have taken to reducing the “outside time ” of our small black cat. We fear she would make too tasty a snack ; )

    • We have not had any eyeball contact with bear this year. However we had scat in the driveway about 6 weeks ago and scat at the back porch 2 weeks ago. The holes in Carol’s flower beds were way too small for bear. I still suspect possum of weasel

    • We have seen Fishers on our place (Acme) and regularly see the dug up yellow jacket nests in Fall. I had thought Bears did that as they seem more common. We’ve also seen the “Rubber Boa” snake a couple times. Who knew a (small) Boa constrictor was part of the scenery !?!

    • I’m pretty sure that skunks are digging up the wasp nests. I’ve had two such holes in my yard this year. I had pet skunks once, long story, but they’re amazing diggers and the do love larvae, caterpillars, and other crawlies. It never occurred to me that it could be a different creature eating wasps. I DO need a critter cam!
