Pictured above are a few of the residents from Cape Meares who accepted the invitation from Mike and Patti Smith to join them for the Annual Spring Clean-up of the Cape Meares Community Center.
The scheduled start was 10 AM on Saturday, April 8, and that was the same time a surprise hail storm arrived that dumped enough ice pellets on the ground to make the conditions slippery and white everywhere.
Our property is looking great. Thanks to the following 17 residents who pitched in and helped. Arla Ayres, Brad Ayers, Andy Ayres, Kathy Burke, BJ Byron, Deborah Neal, Dave Freitas, Ruth Freitas, Marjorie Hirsch, Olli Ollikainen, Jenny Stanley, Charles Ansorge, Wendy Kunkel, Dave Audet, Anita Johanson and our most helpful building managers, Patti and Mike Smith.
Are there some some things you failed to consider in your efforts to be prepared for future emergencies?

For roughly the next three-four weeks beginning January 10, 2017, there may be periodic shut-offs of water serving residences in the community.
The shut-offs will usually be brief (two hours, or less) and will effect a minimal number of residences as new pipes are installed along 3rd, 4th, and Pacific in the community.
The watermaster has indicated he will notify one of the water commissioners on mornings when an outage is expected so this information can be posted on Nextdoor.
If you have questions regarding the upgrading of the water distribution system for the community you should call the district office. (503) 842-0370

Pete Steen is one of the Map Your Neighborhood Captains for Cape Meares. For the past couple of years he has asked interested members of the Seaview neighborhood that he patrols to write an imaginary scenario of what might have happened to them if the earthquake had indeed arrived at 10:20 AM on October 20, the day set aside as the Great Oregon Shake-Out day. This year (2016) he did not ask his neighbors to do this but he did write a scenario himself. Click on the link below to view a PDF of his scenario.
Cape Meares residents are serious about emergency preparedness. This is just one example to illustrate efforts to promote this ongoing effort.
