Leavenworth, Plain, Trunk or Treat

Mark your calendars if you haven’t already, the annual Trunk or Treat is coming up fast! Halloween falls on a Saturday this year so no excuses not to be there. As always the Trunk or Treat will be held in the parking lots of the Plain Grocery and Plain Hardware Store. This is a safe way for you and your kids to have fun. Be sure to dress warm, with weather conditions so unpredictable this year, you need be prepared for anything.

Don’t forget to bring a flashlight and make sure the little ones will be easily seen while going from trunk to trunk. Bring a little change so you can get that cup of coffee or hot chocolate to warm up from the inside out.

Trunk or Treat has really started to become a community social, so come on out, bring the kids, bring the neighbors and have a good time.

Leavenworth Winter Driving Conditions

For those of you that haven’t heard, Leavenworth Upper Valley has already received the first snow of the year. Traditionally, we look for snow on Halloween, however this year, we received the fluffy white stuff about 3 weeks early.

Over the last forty years, we have received snow only a couple of times this early. Unpredictable, out of the norm, wetter than usual.

These are all things to consider when driving the passes. Be prepared! Carry an extra change of clothes, heavy coat, a blanket, road flares, first aid kit, tire chains, a good spare tire, flashlight and drinking water.

Check weather forecasts before leaving on your trip, drive with a full tank of gas, check fluid levels, winterize your vehicle, and check tire pressure. And let someone know your plans and keep in contact with them during your trip; call them when you arrive, when you leave and when you return.

Be safe! Drive smart!
