Hard to go back to the rain when we've had such beautiful weather the past 2 weeks in Rincon Valley.  Temps in the 80's.  My weather watchers will wait it out till the sun comes out again.

Rincon Valley is a cute little piece of Santa Rosa, and as the name implies, it is bordered on 2 sides by hills. It's not known for much other than it is pretty, and property is desirable. The schools are great, and the people are friendly. Oh, there is one thing, there's that cross up on the hil...
