Here's What You Need To Know If You Are New To Tri-Cities Washington
Tri-Cities seem like any other small but growing area but we've got a few rules that are unwritten that if you're new to town, you're going to learn quickly.
I remember my first discovery of an unwritten rule in the Tri-Cities and that's when I encountered the wind that regularly wreaks havoc on our way of life.
You see, I was doing a radio station remote when I first moved and I set up our broadcast tent. I wasn't paying attention and the next thing I know a big gust of wind comes wooshing through, uprooting the tent and all!
Needless to say, the tent hit several cars at the dealership that I was doing the broadcast at and ended up costing the station over $5000 to get the cars repainted.

I learned really quickly that in the Tri-Cities on a windy day, you tie everything down. It's an unwritten rule that wind and dust are getting everywhere on a blustery day in the Columbia Basin.
I've compiled 10 other unwritten rules that the "noobs' need to know about the Tri-Cities and a refresher course for the long-time residents. I think we are all going to be able to relate to the list.
