el dorado hills living: Lake Tahoe - Year Round Beauty - 01/13/13 07:02 PM
Lake Tahoe - Year Round Beauty Living in El Dorado Hills is fabulous in itself but within a couple hours we also have the luxury of Lake Tahoe and it's year round beauty. In the winter months there are many snow ski areas and in the summer months there is boating, golf, concerts, camping, casinos, etc. Taking Highway 50 from El Dorado Hills we can be at South Lake Tahoe within 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Traveling by way of Highway 80, we can be on the north end of the lake within 1 3/4 to 2 hours. (12 comments)
I know you may be tempted but it's not time to plant your summer garden in El Dorado Hills. Every year my husband, seeing signs of Spring and all the summer plant start in Home Depot, Orchard Supply, and Lowes on his weekly visits, is tempted to get his garden started. Many of the summer vegetables are not frost tolerant and technically you need to wait until the last frost date has passed.
Based on the USDA gardening zones our last frost here in El Dorado Hills should (11 comments)
This time of year El Dorado Hills is so green. Come summer our hills are golden brown.

el dorado hills living: The El Dorado Hills Rocks - 09/14/11 04:00 PM
The El Dorado Hills Rocks If you're heading north on El Dorado Hills Blvd and happen to see two big rocks off to your right with graffiti on them, you've come across an El Dorado Hills icon- The El Dorado Hills Rocks. There is quite a story behind them that began in the spring of 1999 when my son was playing baseball at Oak Ridge High School. While poking a little fun at our JV coach at the time, a couple of the players, I'll not name, decided to mimic a phrase the coach often used. In the middle of (14 comments)
el dorado hills living: Heads Up When Temperatures Drop - 01/11/11 12:14 AM
Heads Up When Temperatures DropLast night our temperatures in the El Dorado Hills area dropped to just above 30 degrees. When I woke up there was a covering of frost in our yard to where it looked like snow. Typically our average low temperature is 39 degrees. Our record low for January 10th, was 30 degrees in 1962. For the most part, it is uncomfortable for us if we have to venture out, but at these low temperatures some of the plants we grow so well here start to suffer. We are technically considered to be in Sunset Climate Zone 9 (5 comments)
