Winter Weather Banter 

It got really cold, dontcha know?

Unless you're stranded in a woodstove-heated cabin outside Sisters you've probably had the chance to gather that the only acceptable topic of conversation over the past few days in Bend is the weather, or specifically the temperature. (It got really cold, dontcha know?) This is more evidence that, despite our traction tires and abundant mountain snowfall, Bend is still not a winter town. We drive around in blinding snowstorms without our lights on. (Hey, I can see fine!) We don't change the summer diesel out of our school bus fleet, stranding students on street corners.
We walk outside in January dressed in t-shirts, apparently unaware of such technological advances as coats - let alone hats and gloves. But fer crissakes folks can we please stop filling our Facebook posts, e-mails and workplace conversations with more "master of the obvious" notes on the temperature? Yes, it's cold outside folks. It's called winter. It'll be here for two more months. Check your calendar. Get over it. WTF?

  • DO NOT SPIT ON MY CAR

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

  • THE SOURCE ROCKS, BUT 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' DOESN'T

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
