Don Seabrook | Slow days, snow days

The time between Christmas and New Years may just be the slowest news week of the year. It’s hard to get in touch with people, school is out, and many families are hunkered down in their warm houses.

Local news pages still need to be filled so I spent many hours looking around the Wenatchee Valley for people doing something interesting or at least somewhere interesting.
