Paramount Energy Solutions - Solar for zero down

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.

Strong west wind continues today. The gradient this morning is .08/.09, and it’s blowing in the upper twenties at Maryhill and low teens under the clouds near Hood River. We’ll see a low pressure trough move east of the Cascades this afternoon, so things are going to be gusty in the corridor today and best from Doug’s to Maryhill, picking up late at Arlington. We should see 23-26 this morning east of Doug’s, picking up to 26-30 as the trough moves east later.

Tomorrow sees weak high pressure over Oregon and Washington, and models suggest east wind or north wind, but we should still see some west wind in the Gorge. The most likely scenario is 5-10 in the morning and 13-15 in the afternoon, with the strongest wind from Stevenson to Mosier.

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

We’ll see more clouds again on Friday, kicking west winds back into the 17-21 range from Stevenson to Hood River.

If you’re a windsurfer, tonight is the Gorge Windsurfing Awards part at the ruins at Springhouse Cellars. If you haven’t had a chance to vote yet, you can do that at Gorgewindsurfing.org.

There’s a big holiday weekend coming up, and it starts with First Friday in Hood River, always fun, but made way more fun this month with a Rock Paper Scissors competition at Andrew’s at 6:30pm. Then on Sunday, it’s the Sandy Ridge Super D bike race, which a bunch of our local riders in contention for the pedestal, and also on Sunday, there’s a CGWA swap meet at the Hood River Expo Center.

Finally, another reminder, sign up for the September bike commute challenge at bikecommutechallenge.com.

Have an awesome day today!
