Mazama: April 9, 2014

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 entertainment...

Mazama: April 2, 2014

By Bob Spiwak It has been a very quiet week in Mazama. Many people have gone elsewhere, and the snow is going fast with nighttime temperatures being in the 40s. The ice is off the pond, the wood ducks and mallards are back to snarfing down cracked corn, and the larger mallards are again bullying...

Mazama: March 26, 2014

By Bob Spiwak The bustling city of Mazama will be resonating with quiet from Monday (March 31) through April 3. The Mazama Store will be closed during those four days to commemorate spring break and exhaustion. What is to become of SLIME is yet to be determined. From Eric Burr comes our first floriferous report...

Mazama: March 19, 2014

By Bob Spiwak Spring is notably on the way, ushered in by daylight saving time, the first pair of mallards skating on the frozen pond, a pair of varied thrushes, and a host of robins feeding on last year’s apples rotting on the tree. The melt is well underway, ushering in mud season, although the...

Mazama: March 12, 2014

By Bob Spiwak As winter exits, we got some startling information from Rick Le Duc, designated deliverer of NOAA weather information from Mazama. From Nov. 1, 2013, through Feb. 10, 2014, 5.5 inches of precipitation and 43 cumulative inches of snow fell. That’s about 14 weeks. From Feb. 11 onward, a little over three weeks,...

Mazama: March 5, 2014

By Bob Spiwak It’s Monday and, as it has for the past month, this means it is snowing. But now it’s March and if you dig down five to 10 feet you might see some little flowers just aching to bloom — and be reported by Eric Burr, as is his custom. And it being the first...

Mazama: Feb. 26, 2014

By Bob Spiwak There was supposed to be no snowfall today. Ha! It’s Monday and the stuff has been coming down since yesterday morning. Maybe eight inches have come to rest so far. Up at Harts Pass there’s 111 inches on the ground, and the water content stands at 98 percent of average. The total...

Mazama: Feb. 19, 2012

By Bob Spiwak There’s not much point in dwelling on the snowfall this past week. It’s Monday morning now and still coming down. The anomaly being that half of the (unrecorded) days brought periods of warm sunshine. No spring flowers showing yet, but they are waking up, I betcha. With this moisture it could be...

Mazama: Feb. 12, 2014

By Bob Spiwak Good morning, or whatever time it is when you read this. It is an egotistic assumption that it will be read. The snow has been coming down for three hours, and after it was predicted to begin “after 7 a.m.,” it started exactly at 7 a.m. It’s difficult to determine just what...

Mazama: Feb. 5, 2014

By Bob Spiwak Here it is Monday morning. There is blistering sunshine falling, its only shortcoming being that the blisters lose their luster somewhere in the 93 million miles from Old Sol to Mother Earth. If you get your paper on Wednesday, the forecast is for 6 below zero that night. Next night will be...
