Puyallup Events (Jan 9-15)

Happy Monday, welcome to a new week in Puyallup! This week is bustling with different events, and we hope that you take the time to check out activities going on in the community.

Daffodil Valley Volkssport Walk

Looking for a way to get active and make friends along the way? This week join the Puyallup area walking club for a stroll in downtown Tacoma.

• Wed 1/11/17 at 9:15 am 
• Wed 1/18/17 at 9:15 am

An excerpt from the club website below:

“Walks are designed to appeal to everyone in safe, stress-free environments.  Walks are non-competitive, and participants walk at their pace.  Many walks can be done with strollers. Everyone is Welcome!  You do not need to be a member of DVVA or any volkssport club to enjoy our walks. We will meet at the Spar Coffee Bar, 2123 N 30th, Tacoma at 9:15 a.m. Register inside, then meet outside the store. We start at the Spar but head down to walk along Ruston Way. This walk is entirely along the Tacoma waterfront going to the newly developed Japanese Park and Pagoda then to the Point Ruston area passing parks and restaurants.”

Puyallup Public Library

With the cold winter weather, warming up with hot chocolate of coffee with a book sounds pretty relaxing and cozy.

The library is a great resource, if you haven’t been in the library in a while, you won’t regret stopping in.

How’s The Weather?

Puyallup Weather How is It?

Of course many of our readers have lived in the Puyallup area for a long time.  You know the weather in Puyallup because you’ve experienced it for many years.  For our out of state visitors or those who maybe considering relocating here then this post is for you.

Puyallup experiences all 4 seasons.  During the summertime you typically are in the range of the mid 70s to the mid 80s.  You also have some really hot days sprinkled in there.  During Winter, it can get pretty cold but usually doesn’t drop below 46 degrees.  You should expect a few days of below freezing, however.  You’ll certainly need to wear warmer clothing and it’s probably a good idea to have an umbrella with you or in your car just in case.  We do get our share of rainfall during the year.  You can expect a fair amount of cloud cover, fog and drizzle throughout the year.  The annual rainfall is between 70-100 inches per year.  Puyallup’s dry season runs through the months of July-September.  As I mentioned, however, we may receive a small drizzle even during the dry season.  Having a short burst of rain actually is really refreshing and helps break up the dry and hot days.  This year, we did experience a few fires far south of Puyallup which burned acres of land.

Washington State is a very colorful state.  We have lots of trees and colors which makes it a beautiful place to live.  It’s one of the reasons why I live in Puyallup.  Getting to experience every season is the best scenario.  When you’re getting tired of one season, the next one begins.  It keeps you going and refreshed.
