    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!

    I’m on Windows 10. I see the Comment Button at the top of this thread and ‘reply’ links after each comment. I tried it in Chrome, MS Edge, and Firefox. All worked for me, but only if I am signed in.

    Sad news. Thank you for sharing the story.

    Could you run that by me one more time?

    Were these items covered by insurance and have they been replaced?

    I’ve had both. CenturyLink is faster and more reliable. Bad weather used to affect the Internet dish. There’s a section of Century Link (I’m on it on Bates) that is still copper wire and has a number of infrastructure issues. The DSL there sucks, but it’s still better than satellite. From what I understand, the connections are much faster and mor…[Read more]

  • If anyone needs help around their place, I can recommend Nick Duchesneau 503-437-1973. Very reasonable rates. He’s been doing a lot of yard work for us, but is willing and able to do just about anything you need, from painting a room to cooking a meal and is looking for work.

  • I noticed that someone has posted a sign down Snowden that says “Llama Found”. The “llama” is in a fenced area visible from the road. I believe it is an alpaca, mostly black, if you hear of anyone looking for one.

    • Hi Katie – I just noticed the same thing. On Monday afternoon we were driving home and saw a llama walking down Snowden. The guy behind us pulled over and we decided to go door to door and see if we could figure out who’s it was. The first house (402 Snowden) turned out to be the home “Heidi” the llama came from. The lady who lived there, her…[Read more]

    I don’t know if he still does them, but Ken Ingebo did ours. It went up quickly and we’ve been very happy with it. 509-369-3333 or 541-993-9999 are the numbers I have.

    Very cool photos. Thanks for sharing. I’ve seen a bear like that cross the road once last year and once this spring – near the fire station, and I saw it once last year while hiking across the street from my house (27 Bates).

    We’re at the bottom of Bates – DSL. We only get 3mbs down and usually about 0.25 mbs up, but we stream movies, sometimes on two devices at a time without problems. The speed dips below 1.5 mbs and we get buffering issues. Uploading is sometimes painful, but still faster than the real speeds I used to get with satellite and there is no metering.…[Read more]

  • SNOWDEN BROADBAND – In February a fellow named Cameron contacted me to survey interest in broadband service. He was from Wave Broadband. They bought out SawNet and thus access to the fiber optic in the area. They are trying to get a handle on potential customer needs. They want to start with business customers and any small business will qualify,…[Read more]

    Just to add my thought and experience to this thread…
    I also contacted both SawNet and Gorgenet and got nowhere.
    However, after many visits with our local Centurylink repair techs who are tasked with the impossible feat of trying to get my Internet connection up to advertised speed, I have learned over the past few years that we might have the…[Read more]

  • Need about 1200 SF field disked or tilled. Do you know of anyone we could hire?

    • When I used to live up on Snowden, the FFA from the High School did things like that with their tractor.

    • We had the school up here once and it was a disaster. The teacher didn’t even know how to get the tractor into low gear. I’d be asking questions as to how trained or experienced they are.

    I think gathering things in the Snowden category on this site is a natural. Good call, Scott!

    My time is limited, but if you’re not in a rush, I’m a graphic artist and would be glad to help if you think my help would be useful. I could produce files for a ‘magazine’ for print and/or flipping book (for online) and/or pdf for downloading. Editing…[Read more]

    Sorry to be so long in response everyone. I’ve just moved my office, and haven’t yet put everything away, but Sawnet apparently didn’t need the permission they were seeking in the letter: They strung fiber optic cable across the property via the power lines about a week ago.
