The unemployment rate for Whatcom County dropped from 7.8% to 7.4% from September to October. This is 2% less than the State rate and 2.4% less than the national unemployment rate. Our diversified economy, seasonal work in government jobs and the return or the Western Washington State University students are key factor.
The winds keep coming. Last night was the 7th night in a row for high winds. I was determined to make my walk to the Ferry Terminal and Train Station and back to my home in Fairhaven. It was rainy blustery and my friend Steve Albright and 2 Visiting Friends (and real estate customers) all walked briskly. At the end of our walk we sought refuge in the Cafe Milagro ( The Miracle Cafe ). Jesus Canto ( the owner) has brought warm and delicious Mexican food to the Fainhaven District of Bellingham and it was much appreciated by us Autumn walkers.
