About Angwin...
Angwin is a community of about 3000 residents on Howell Mountain. We are in a coastal range of northern California, about 70 mi. north of San Francisco.
The Village ranges from 1600 to 2200 ft. elevation, overlooking the scenic Napa Valley. It is surrounded by vineyards and forests.
Many Angwin residents work for Pacific Union College, a liberal arts college with a national reputation, or the nearby St. Helena Hospital.

The story is in the statistics
A few weeks ago, we introduced viewers to our two new advertisers. But we didn't provide much information about them, so here it is. Just look at these numbers.
Angwin Dental..39 years, 10,000 patients
Dr. Robert Williams pioneered dental service in Angwin. He opened his office here 39 years ago. Since then he has served more then 10,000 patients. Tally those two figures and they spell one word...Experience. And a lot of Angwin people to whom he gave healthier teeth and brighter smiles. The other person on the Angwin team is Dr. Susan Fjarli, who came aboard in 2003, after serving as president of the Multnomah Dental Society and clinical professor at Oregon Health Sciences University. Another cheerful, competent person. Dr. Williams opened a Napa office in 1985, which his son, Dr. Jeff Williams, took over 10 years ago. Building a family tradition.
Advanced of the bunch
Angwin old timers, and some not so old, travel to Napa where Geoffrey Calkins and Elizabeth Gilson listen to our hearing problems and get us listening better. They face challenges and find solutions. In 2010, the independent "Bay Area Consumers' Checkbook" took a survey of 45 hearing aid centers throughout the Bay Area. Advanced Instruments hit the top of the list in six categories. Look at these scores:
Promptness of service
Quality of products
Variety of products
Ease of testing products
Overall quality
What can we exclaim about these two professional offices which have racked up years of service and statistics like these?
Something like "Wow!" comes to mind.

DeWeber Voted Fireman of the Year

Fireman of the Year, Peter DeWeber, handshake with Diane Dillon

Peter DeWeber being congratulated by Diane Dillon, County supervisor for the 3rd District, for being elected "Fireman of the Year" by the Angwin Volunteer Fire Department. The Department responded to 216 calls so far in 2014.

The first big winter storm

Conn Creek rushing by
The rainfall turned Conn Creek near the intersection of College Avenue and White Cottage Road into a fast-moving stream. It must be beautiful going over Linda Falls. And dangerous.

Angwin has finally seen the arrival of winter.
On December 10 and 11, the rain came down in serious intent, the wind arrived in gusts which might have been as strong as 50 mph, the water ran across Howell Mountain Road 2 inches deep, and the hardware store ran out of all but the largest tarps.
The Napa Valley Register reported that Angwin got 7 inches, more of the storm than any other Napa County area. Because Angwin elevations range from 1600 to 2200 feet, that number will vary.
The big storm has brought our rainfall this season to approximately 21.3 inches, a good start toward our average of 42.
The Howell Mountain Mutual Water Company needs a lot more than that average to reach the safe level of its reservoirs. Three years of drought will require some catch-up. About 400 households depend on that system.
The chart below presents Angwin's rainfall inches during the rainy season. They come to an annual historic average of about 42 inches.
