Mazama: Jan. 29, 2014

By Bob Spiwak It is another freezing, foggy Monday morning. The “wintry mix” predicted has not shown up at ground level, but about 300 feet up on Grizzly Mountain it is all white from residual snow and fresh, heavy, cotton candy frost on the pines. With the attendant humidity it feels much like an ordinary...

Mazama: Jan. 15, 2014

By Bob Spiwak Not much happening in Mazamaland over the past week. I’ve been kind of stove up with a bad back, which has enabled a lot of daytime television watching, something I rarely do other than weekend football games. Being a weather freak, it afforded me a lot of watching of The Weather Channel...

Mazama: Jan. 8, 2014

By Bob Spiwak A beautiful and sunny winter day. Nine degrees at wakeup and a forecast for a series of storms coming in from the west with varying amounts of snow predicted. The holidays are finally over and a measure of peace has settled over Highway 20. From observations and reports, there may have been...

By Bob Spiwak Well, everyone likes to talk about the weather, it is said, and on this Sunday morning, an early writing effort because of the holiday, it is gently snowing here in West Boesel. Just under freezing is predicted. Freezing is what brought to mind last week’s commentary about a rumored remembrance commemorating the...

Mazama By Bob Spiwak The weather forecast for this morning (April 7) offered a day with sunshine and a high of 62. What we have is overcast and it’s very much on the cool side, 42 degrees. Not too conducive for a comfortable golf outing planned for tomorrow. Even without golf there is plenty of...

Mazama: Dec. 25, 2013

By Bob Spiwak We’re early this week, and next week as well, to be able to get into print and not miss Santa’s visit. It’s Sunday, cloudy but no precipitation is coming down here, although the sky cam on Patterson Mountain earlier showed the white stuff coming down. It appears we are in for a...

Mazama: Dec. 11, 2013

By Bob Spiwak A pleasant sunny Monday morning. The temperature has zoomed up to a comfortable 1 degree above zero. Since our high-low record on the thermometer has crashed, I have no idea how low the temperature got last night. But NOAA is promising warmer weather, with around four days of “possible” snow beginning in...

Mazama: Dec. 4, 2013

By Bob Spiwak I have been hearing that today (Dec. 2) is Cyber Monday. It seems that every day must now have some commercial cutesy tag on it throughout our great nation. Nonetheless, I will call it Butt Freeze Overture Day not only to give it a non-commercial slant, but also to anticipate zero degrees...

Mazama: Nov. 27, 2013

By Bob Spiwak It’s just a few days until Thanksgiving and while some people are desolate because there is no snow in the forecast, others are quite content with the sunshine, un-slick roads and mild temperatures. Thanksgiving day is forecast with a “chance of showers,” and by the time you carve the turkey it could...
