Friday Evening Extra

Photo9Something different this evening…this post is a big thank you to all of you posters out there.

Cherie P. from Vernonia, who has been a "regular" on this site for quite a long time (maybe two years?), has gone through a very rough week or so.  Her husband passed away late last week very unexpectedly. 

Cherie & I conversed via e-mail a bit this evening and she wanted to make sure you all know how helpful your calls and emails have been.  Several of you have been in regular contact over the last week.  Cherie pointed out how this "blog family" HAS been just like a real family to her during this very challenging period of time.

If you’d like to get in touch with her (other than through comments here), send me a note at and I can help you out.   

A thank you to Tyler Mode (another regular) for the appropriate picture…a sunrise on the clouds this morning.  Clicking on the picture shows a much larger version.

    Thanks for the information and update. Nothing could be truer than the things you said. Much respect to you for posting and addressing this situation in this manner.
    Nice pic. If you happen to drop by and visit here tell her I said hi and I am thinking of her as well. Thanks.
    I could not agree more. This is a blog family here.

    I’m glad Cherie felt/feels comfortable enough here to tell us about such a personal issue.
    I may drive through Monday on my way to the beach to say hi. We’ll see.

    Cherie, if you need anything please let us know. I’ve had more than my share of loss the last year and the one thing we all need to do when we experience loss is to talk. Good that you have found an outlet.
    And Mark, very very nice of you to blog about Cherie. There is a reason why so many people come to this blog to discuss weather and there is a reason that you are the most credible, accurate and viewable met in town.
    Thank you for doing what few others in your position would.
