In their produce report Yvonne says, they are currently fresh picking sweet cherries, raspberries, and mushrooms; no spray – chemical free – just what nature and fish emulsion gives us. Which begs the question… What’s in your food??? You have to be careful about what you feed yourself and your kids these days, been paying attention to the news lately?
And just across the road at Blue Mountain Brewery they’re serving a cherry/chocolate/goat cheese crumble made with amFOG cherries. Now that is yummy!

We continue to hear music today from 2007-2008 NCHS Jazz Band. Stick around to hear more in just a few minutes.
Thanks again to Ann Strober and to Henri and Elaine Weems for today’s weather photos above. We are getting in some fantastic shots of the recent storms across the area. Monday wasn’t the exception. By late afternoon a severe thunderstorm watch was issued with some warnings issued across the area as well. Again as has been the case for a few days, some people saw lots of rain, while others got nothing. Phil D’Ambola wrote in to tell us that his mother in law next to the restaurant got a 3.15″ downpour, while here at the office just 3 miles south we hardly got more than a trace in the weekend storms.
Today marks the end of the stormy weather for a few days, and though less humid with the passage of a cold front, it’s still going to be pretty hot with even hotter weather later in the week.
By Friday into the weekend, chances for thunderstorms returns again.
