Laramie, Wyoming Real Estate: Aaah, No Worries...it'll melt! - 05/11/11 12:54 PM
They predicted snow overnight but I didn't believe it. I guess I should have. Turns out they were right and we woke up to the gray shine of a cloud covered snowy day. But, no worries... it'll melt! And probably by tomorrow as our temperatures are supposed to be back up to 65 degrees tomorrow and for the rest of the week. Yay!

Laramie, Wyoming Real Estate: Empty Streets - 05/10/11 09:52 PM
Aaah, the slow pace of summer is about to arrive in Laramie, Wyoming. Last Saturday was graduation for most of our University college graduates (Law School graduates this Saturday), with finals and the semester ending as well. What does this mean for the Laramie residents that live here year round? It means emptier streets, no rush hour traffic (if you'd call waiting an extra stoplight a rush hour) and less young people walking to campus loaded down with backpacks. It also means not as many alcohol related police calls or public disturbances reported in the local newspaper. Yes, our town is (5 comments)
Laramie, Wyoming Real Estate: Attack of the Chipmunk - 05/09/11 09:53 PM
Today's post is decidedly UN-real estate oriented. While browsing through pictures, hoping to be inspired by a regional shot, I found this memory instead. While it was taken at Vedauwoo, a local outdoor attraction, I thought the emotion might be universal. After hiking around the rocks and trails, I plunked the kids down for a nice serene group photo in the picnic shelter. Obviously, the kids were unaware of the phenomenon of chipmunks and picnic areas. Thus, they freaked when one of the little buggers scampered hopefully over for the usual dropped food. It may not be real estate, but (9 comments)
Laramie, Wyoming Real Estate: To Inspect....or Not? - 05/08/11 10:17 PM
After negotiations result in a contract to buy a home, a buyer has to decide.... to inspect or not inspect? The answer... is not straightforward. It depends on the buyers and the actual property being purchased. Is the house 2 years old or one hundred? (Newer does not necessarily mean better...) Will the buyer be financially ruined if a costly problem emerges? Or are they willing to take their chances? Some people feel perfectly fine foregoing inspections all together. They'll just roll with whatever comes their way. Some people like to give the property a good once over themselves. While (9 comments)
Laramie, Wyoming Real Estate: Wyoming School of Gymnastics - 05/07/11 10:30 PM
One of my favorite places in Laramie is the Wyoming School of Gymnastics. The owner and coach, Rob Mitchell, offers classes for people of all ages. He welcomes all abilities and nurtures the growth of children both mentally and physically. For kids who want to compete he offers the opportunity to be on the boys' or girls' team. But if you think that his primary mission is to push kids to compete - you'd be wrong! He is fantastic at helping each kid get what they want out of it and takes pride in developing their confidence as well as their (5 comments)
Laramie, Wyoming Real Estate: Nature vs Nurture - Nature Wins! - 05/06/11 09:59 PM
One of the coolest things about going to our dentist (if anything can be cool about going to the dentist!) is the flower garden by the front door. Somehow, it is in a perfect sheltered south facing location letting it sprout up earlier and stick around longer. Thus, I was delighted to find these beauties in bloom when I visited today.
Nature must be pretty stong willed - as from the looks of this rocky, parched, non-nutrient rich soil, I say these blooms were never "nurtured" at all!
Laramie, Wyoming Real Estate: 69 Center Street - 05/05/11 11:13 PM
People in general always seem surprised by the price of land here in Wyoming. I guess they figure with so few people and so much land prices should be lower. What they don't realize is that the ratio of public land to private is greater out here than anyplace else. Additionally, this area was built around cattle, mining and the railroad - so much of the land is disproportionately owned or leased by these industries. Of the land that remains, finding land that is actually inhabitable, by people or animals, becomes even more of a challenge. The reason I'm explaining all (12 comments)
Laramie, Wyoming Real Estate: Colorful Colorado - 05/04/11 08:35 PM
The beautiful state of Colorado is only 25 miles south of Laramie on Highway 287. While Colorado is known for its wilderness and majestic mountain beauty, our family likes to head that way for an escape to urban civilization. This is the sign that greats us when we arrive at the border: It's true, Colorado is colorful, indeed! And now with the continuing invasion of the pine beetle, Colorado, and Wyoming, too - is becoming more colorful each year. Look closely and you'll see the burnt orange color of the dead pine trees in among the green. Maybe not the (10 comments)
Laramie, Wyoming Real Estate: Signs of Spring....in May - 05/03/11 09:36 PM
All right you people out there with your pictures of flowers and grass, butterflies and trees... Here in Laramie, Wyoming, we are showing signs of spring as well. Ha! I even have evidence of it, a photo of our lilac bush, today, May 3, 2011 with....wait for it...wait for it ......... a BUD! And by June - we may even have leaves on our trees! Hate to brag or make other people feel bad.... but I think spring could be on its way! (9 comments)
Laramie, Wyoming Real Estate: ActiveRainPhotoBlogger Contest - 05/02/11 01:01 PM
When I was a kid I remember going on endless country drives with my parents . Back then, I never understood the purpose and did not look forward to the boring explorations of the dusty back roads where we lived. Halfway through the drives, my brother and I usually ended up with our heads tilted askew, fast asleep. (Hmmm, maybe that was the purpose....)
Now that I'm grown up with kids of my own, I realize - at least in part - what the draw might have been. Life can get a bit mundane and it can be fun to (37 comments)
Laramie, Wyoming Real Estate: I Broke a Child's Heart Today - 05/01/11 11:46 PM
Life is ironic, isn't it.?! I can't tell you how many late nights I have spent in my self-assigned role of Santa, Easter Bunny and even Leprechaun quietly creeping around in the dark and cold thinking "I can't wait until I don't have to do this anymore..." Well, now, I officially don't have to. Our youngest, now nine years old, came to me with a box she found in a hidden place that clearly had held Easter goodies at one time. "Mom! Tell me the truth....are you the Easter Bunny?!" I tried to lie but she clearly meant business as her bright blue eyes pierced (6 comments)
