It's a big, empty building, but the old North Bend fire station may be the perfect fit for a "little" new winery in the city. Piccola Cellars in Woodinville recently signed a five-year lease on the property, where it plans to relocate its warehouse business from Woodinville, and open a second public tasting room in the near future.

Because the plant’s sprinkler system never activated, and because the three closest fire hydrants were frozen by a recent deep freeze, there was little firefighters could do as the 120,000 square foot mill was engulfed in flames.

With Valentine’s Day upon us, let me just chalk up the things that may brighten your heart, locally speaking.
