Temira's honesty about her Columbia Gorge weather forecasts:
Random Morning Thoughts
I’ve been forecasting wind for the Gorge and snow for Mt. Hood for many years now. Over these years, I’ve received a few calls, emails, and comments from business interests asking me to “enhance” my forecasts in order to encourage people to visit both Hood River and Mt. Hood. I received another one of those emails yesterday......
I honestly feel that Temira works hard at trying to give us an accurate, daily forecast. That is why I subscribe and get an almost daily forecast in my morning email. How else will I know we are going to have a "rainbow day"? July is pledge month for Temira and for $12.34 I think it is a good investment.
Jim White, a forester by profession, calls himself an amateur astronomer, but I consider him pretty much a professional in his astronomy presentations. He has a great speaking voice, very knowledgeable about our night skies, and very patient with those of us who are not knowledgeable.
Jim will have his telescope set up at the Trout Lake Fair Saturday night August 2, 9:00 pm at the TL School.
On Saturday, August 30, Labor Day Weekend, he will be set up at the Conboy Wildlife Refuge, on the Trout Lake/ Glenwood road starting at 8:00 pm.
Bring a flashlight to find your way back to your car, a warm jacket and if you have a telescope you are welcome to bring it.
If it is cloudy, Jim probably won't be there.
