Eclipse debuts tonight

Well Twilight: Eclipse premieres tonight and I'll scour the web tomorrow to find shots of the premiere in Port Angeles.  It's been sunny lately here which is nice to see after all that rain.

Officially Summer

Well yesterday marked the first official day of summer and the tourists are starting to come in more and more.  More people are starting to learn that I'm here and I'm getting more business cards handed out.  Things have been slow going, but that was expected at first.  Summer is not going to be my best computer repair time around here as it's the only decent weather we get round here and most people are spending it outside.  That's where I hope the tourist Twilight crowd can help supplement the income a little.  I have pretty cool and unique items, at least once or more a day I get people taking a picture of my product in the window and sign.  As traffic increases hopefully too does the window shopper to shopper ratio.

Sun, Rain, Sun, Rain

Well the sun has been on and off so far this week but we should have mainly sunny days ahead.  I actually got a few sales today, so hopefully the summer tourist season is kicking off.

Sparkling Sunshine

Sunshine has finally broken through the clouds and it looks like it should stick around a little this time.  Tourist traffic is starting to pick up too, so I've got wishful thinking for some foot traffic.  I got business cards ordered and on the way, so I can get those handed out and hopefully get some word of mouth business.

U.S.A. Flags

The city of Forks work crew is out hanging the American flags up in town, I'm getting excited for the Forks old fashioned Fourth of July looking at them.  The flowers there they hung around the start of the springtime.

Rain, Rain go away

More rain this week, but it looks like sunny or at least overcast weather is coming.  Not too many events upcoming but I'm certainly looking forward to the West End Thunder races.  The first races will be on June 26 - 27 at the Forks airport on the South side of town just past the Forks Outfitters store.

Surprisingly Sunny

Well despite what the weather reports said it was going to do it is actually sunny out today, sparkling abound.  Fishing season opens today on all the rivers, so dad has been decently busy on the sporting goods side.  So far I'm not seeing much tourist traffic, but it's early still and school isn't out until next week for a lot of places.

No vampires this morning, possibly this afternoon

Well it's an iffy day for vampires today in Forks, WA.  We started out with some sun, the first in quite a few days, but it has moved to more overcast now.  The weather report says it's supposed to rain more tonight and the 10 day forecast shows nothing but rain.  Now we're used to the rain here in Forks, but that doesn't mean we don't get tired of it once in a while.  I mean come on, it's June but the weather sure isn't acting like it.

More rain, more Twilighters and Twihards

Another vampire friendly day in Forks, WA the rain is pouring and the sun is nowhere to be seen.  There was good traffic for the Memorial day weekend, I just hope it keeps up.  It's been a pretty depressing first 2 months so far, not seeing much foot traffic in the door.  Though I did just get my signage in and I'm told traffic really picks up in the summer.  Here's hoping.
