Corvallis was ringed by snow in the hills last week...

OK, so outhouses aren't really the best of subject matters, but it's the only picture I had of the snow this last week. Corvallis itself didn't really see snow, but the hills surrounding town had a nice coating of white around them. I decided to take a drive out to the Lewsiburg Saddle to see if it had any snow... boy was I surprised. Lewisburg Saddle, for those unfamiliar with it, is a spot just outside of town with logging roads and hiking trails. It's a great area to hike. To get there just go out to Lewisburg road (just north of Crescent Valloey High), turn left on Lewisburg road, turn right on Sulfur Springs road and head uphill, maybe 2 miles, and when you get to the top there will be parking areas (and outhouses) on the side of the road. It's one of our go to hiking areas right next to town.

I found this on the Corvallis Police Facebook page... a neat program they are running this spring...

5 Secret Weapons for DIY projects...

courtesy of BreakthroughBroker...

 Is there a home maintenance project that’s been lingering on your to-do list for too long because you’re dreading the trip to the hardware or craft store? There are some projects you can tackle with items that are almost certainly already in your home.

 1. Vinegar: There’s probably a jug of vinegar in your pantry right now. You can soak items in vinegar to remove mineral deposits (like in a clogged showerhead), and you can boil vinegar in your microwave to remove odors and make it easier to clean.

 2. Cola: A can of Coke or Pepsi can be used to clean many surfaces, including your glass windows, porcelain toilet, or chrome fixtures. Just do some research before using it on metal surfaces, as it can be corrosive.

 3. Baking soda: This item may actually be more useful for applications other than baking. A baking soda-vinegar paste is great for cleaning bathrooms and kitchens. Baking soda can also be used to absorb odors.

 4. Butter knife: Screwdrivers are easy to misplace. If can’t find a screwdriver when you need one, a butter knife—preferably an older one that you no longer need for table setting—is pretty effective for both Phillips- and flat-head screws.

 5. Toothpaste: Is there an unsightly scratch on your car or bike? The grit in tarter-control toothpastes makes for an effective scratch remover. Clean the scratch, apply some toothpaste, let it sit for a few minutes, and then buff it out with paper towel.
