Ever try to get in to see your chiropractor, only to be told you’re waiting a few days? Every been hurt on a Saturday? Hood River Chiropractic, located downtown above Flow Yoga, can help you out. Docs Michelle and Alex (who rips Post Canyon all the time) can get you in, even on a Saturday. These two understand you don’t want to slow down because you’re hurt. They’ll work with you to formulate a recovery plan that allows you to keep doing the things you love (like ride Post). They take insurance, they offer cash discounts, and they’ll make sure you get the treatment you need. Finally, if you need some supplements (no, not EPO or HGH), they’ll do customized nutritional analysis to make sure you’re only getting the supps you really need. To book an appointment, give them a call: 541-406-0849. Two of the lucky people on the email version of this forecast will win free chiropractic appointments this week.

That was a gorgeous sunset we had last night, and southerly flow over the Northwest will give us a good chance of beautiful sunsets for the next few nights. If it wasn’t pre-sunrise as I write this, I’d probably be commenting on the pretty sunrise too.

The southerly flow isn’t great for wind in the Gorge, but that’s not stopping the gradient from starting at .11. It’s hard to argue for light wind like the models predict with that kind of gradient. Since this is driven by an upper low moving east, I’ll say 18-22 this morning from Hood River to Arlington, fading out east by late morning and picking up to 23-26 from Stevenson to Doug’s this afternoon.

The Clymb: free membership.
Access to super cheap gear including Trew, Zeal, Sierra Designs, and many more.

Tomorrow starts off with light wind in the 15-18 range, picking up to 22-25 in the afternoon as a cold front pushes in to the coast. Expect the strongest wind tomorrow to start near Hood River, switching to Stevenson as that front moves in later in the day.

Marine air pushes into Portland on Friday night, and we’ll wake up to wind on Saturday. We should start off with 23-26, and that should hold through much of the day, with the strongest wind from Stevenson to Hood River.

In after work, entertainment this evening, there’s the 5:30 Post and Pint ride out of Dirty Fingers. If you suffer through the muggy ride, you’ll get a cold drink after. Tomorrow is Tandem Friday. Grab your significant other and your tandem bike and meet at Ten Speed in Hood River.

Then, coming up this weekend, there’s the Cabrinha kite race on Saturday at the Sandbar at 9:30, and of course, don’t miss the Bigfoot Bash and Bounty in Home Valley. On Saturday night, swing by the Columbia Center for the Arts for the movie Patagonia Rising, about proposed dams in Patagonia.

Have an awesome day today!
