I know we need snow -- in the mountains -- for the resorts an all you snow bunnies out there. But I've been enjoying my ability to walk without worrying about ice and be outdoors this time of the year. I split some wood over the weekend to get my family through the final weeks of 2014. Have you ever split wood with an ax or a splitting mall? I've been doing it for almost four decades. The old adage is true. Wood heat heats you twice. First when you're splitting it. And, secondly, of course, when you're burning it. Now for today's Wild Card ...

On The Watefront

Work along the Dike Road (Spokane River side) is progressing well this week. Most of the trees and brush have been removed from the northern half of the stretch, opening the vista to the river and beyond. Crews today were busy stabilizing the new softer slope of the bank down to the beach. All the stumps have been removed in that stretch. It'll be interesting to see if the work continues to move toward the lake. A new piece of public art will honor the Coeur d'Alene Indian Tribe to the north of the Dike Road, toward the sewer plant.
