SBS-Seattle is especially thankful for those of you who have followed, commented and contributed as we grow daily. So, as we reflect back, here are the Top 5 posts of 2012 as determined by YOUR clicks….
Washington state’s 2012 had more rain than normal but there was a legendary “dry spell” that made headlines. The period of dryness extended from late July through early October which, conveniently enough for us lushes, is the exact period wine grapes get good and tasty.
The 2012 Washington wine harvest is expected to be spectacular. This from the Bellingham Herald:
“Two positive aspects of cool nighttime weather were very apparent in the grapes at harvest, these being high acid and deep color. Another result was longer ‘hang time,’ particularly in white varieties like Chardonnay, leading to more tropical and citrus notes with the bright acid normally associated with more herbaceous flavors.

Since the world is coming to an end this Friday, we thought we’d spruce up your Bucket List before the impending Mayan Apocalypse.
Our Tuesday suggestion – Whale Watching. Free your inner Willie.
It so Pacific Northwest but you rarely, if ever, let yourself go on a whale watch, right? Work, traffic and life happen and you look up and PUFF, you miss out on the chance to witness one of the most beautiful experiences nature can offer.
