Don’t hibernate. There are hot toddies, Russian spas, and skating rinks worth braving the cold.

1) We’re in for Another La Niña Year. BLAME THE TRADE WINDS. THEY’RE WHY THE NORTHWEST IS IN FOR another cold, snowy La Niña winter.  Of course, for those of us who live to hit the slopes, hunker down by the fire, and model hats with earflaps, that sounds a little different: another cold, snowy winter!  Read More 

2) We Have Canadian Comfort Food. FILLING, FATTY, AND DRIPPING with cheese, poutine is the ultimate winter comfort food splurge.

Traditionalists will find a standard preparation at plenty of places—we’re big fans

Believed to be named after Governor Isaac I. Stevens, Lake Stevens was first settled in 1886 on a 160-acre homestead along the east shore. By 1890 the first town in the area, "Ferry," was established. Its name was later changed to "Hartford," and it served as the main link from the famed Monte Cristo timber and mining resources to the world.

In 1905 a railroad spur was built by the Rucker Brothers Timber Company, linking Hartford with Lake Stevens. Two years later Rucker Mill was opened, located along and in the north cove of the lake (original pilings can still be seen in the old lake outflow area just south of the boat launch). In 1919, the mill, which became known as the "world's largest sawmill," burned and was partially rebuilt. When it burned a

Surrounded by other equally prestigious communities, the City of Clyde Hill has unique distinction of having spectacular views of Lake Washington, Mount Rainier, the Olympic Mountains, the Cascade Mountain range and the Seattle skyline from its many higher elevations. The City's park-like towering evergreens and a lush profusion of  northwestern foliage on public and private property are the pride of its friendly citizens and a delight to visitors.

Kenmore was primarily dense forest for many years while Bothell and Woodinville were being built up, and was mostly owned by investors. One of these investors, Philo Remington (inventor of Remington guns) sold some of the investment property to Watson C. Squire (his son-in-law). Squire was the last territorial governor of Washington state and one of our states' first United States Senators. He erected a water tower and the availability of water attracted water squatters. Shirley Squire, his sister, a landscape architect in Massachusetts, had planned to make it into a  residential waterfront park complete with lagoons, but Squire died in 1926 before he was able to build it. Sportsmen enjoyed hunting in the area of the marsh at the mouth of…
