2A Wednesday, June 17, 2015 Chester Progressive, Westwood PinePress Thundershowers don't damp,00,n commz nity E00ve: t planning Unexpected showers accompanied by some impressive thunderclaps passed over the basin last week and produced a minor deluge. Unfortunately, it was all just a climatic tease. It was nice while it lasted, though. Surprising, too, given how hot and sunny the days have been. Still, that's mountain weather for you. Maybe a few storms over the summer would partly help relieve the drought and be a welcome change now and then. But despite the best prognostications the weather is often uncertain. What is certain, however, is the upcoming Fun Run race and Fourth of July parade on Main Street in downtown Chester that's just around the corner. I'll be snapping pictures, so wear your fmest patriotic (or funniest) outfflts! Hospice auction Plumas Bank in Chester will be hosting a silent auction benefitting Sierra Hospice.
