A fundraiser for an injured Coupeville pastor and his family will pit police against firefighters in a battle for supremacy on the basketball court.

I think it’s safe to say things are back to normal in Western Washington. The rain gutters are making that old familiar burbling noise and dodging mud puddles is once again a normal part of navigating the byways.
I could almost swear I heard a collective sigh rise up from a million slug and snail burrows when the first fat raindrops fell. But maybe it was just the wind revving up for a typical October blast.
