lehigh valley pennsylvania: Found Pony in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania Looking For It's Owner - 02/29/12 09:40 PM
 
Friends, a small, brown pony with markings was found in the Rte. 309 area of the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania about a week ago.  We are searching for it's rightful owner.  If anyone knows of anyone missing such a creature, PLEASE get them in touch with me ASAP.  It is hard to believe no one is coming forward to claim this pony.  However, with the times the way they are, one never knows what is the true story behind this pony.
 
Friends, please repost to the area.  We do need to find this pony's owner!

lehigh valley pennsylvania: 2010 Census For Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania Shows Housing Market Fared Better In Recession Compared to State and Nation - 07/08/11 02:44 AM
 


Even though we are in a recession, the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania, fared better in the housing market than the state and the nation according to the 2010 Census figures.  This includes both Northampton and Lehigh Counties.
 
It showed that the region's vacancy rates were lowest of vacant housing in the state.  That is great news for the area!  What this means is that a rise in vacancy rates can bring down property values and quality of life.
 
Why has the Lehigh Valley fared so well?  Believe it or not, it was because of the region's proximity to higher … (2 comments)

lehigh valley pennsylvania: Has Spring Sprung Already in the Lehigh Valley? But It's Only January! - 01/24/10 11:37 PM
 
The Lehigh Valley is currently going through a January thaw.  Right now the temperatures are in the mid 50's and it is raining.  Sounds like typical spring weather, right?
 
You're right, it is typical spring weather, but this is January, the middle of winter.  It's usually cold, windy and snowy this time of year. 
 
It seems like some of nature has been fooled it is spring. 
 
Yesterday, while out showing homes, one of the homes had a large open area next to it.  Would you believe I saw robins in that field.  Not one or two, but … (4 comments)

lehigh valley pennsylvania: Is It Really October? I Thought I Missed A Couple Of Months! - 10/16/09 12:26 AM
 
Yesterday, parts of the Lehigh Valley and the Poconos here in Pennsylvania saw their first snow.  Yes, I said the dreaded four letter word, SNOW.  (I have to admit, it does look pretty, though.)  The funny thing is, this is October, not December. 
 
Our area doesn't usually see snow in October.  It has been unusually cold this week.  The temperatures have been at 40 degrees or the upper 30's.  Our normal highs for this month tend to be in the low 60's.  Quite a big difference I would say.
 
The forecast through the weekend is for more snow … (12 comments)
