zephyrhills: Christmas Dinner 2019 at Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, FL - 12/26/19 08:31 AM
Christmas Dinner at Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, Florida. Nice turn out and most of our "snowbird" residents have returned now. Those that have not, will soon be arriving now that the holidays are nearly over. I pity those driving down on Interstate 95 or 74. Those are typically one 1,000 mile parking lot that moves very slowly. I was in it twice and said never again. Wonderful weather though. Sunny and mid 70's during the day!
Many of our 55+ subdivisions have these dinners on Thanksgiving and Christmas so that those residents who can't be with their families up north can … (0 comments)

zephyrhills: Spanish Trails Village, Zephyrhills, FL has 2019 Xmas Golfcart Parade - 12/22/19 01:29 PM

Yesterday evening Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, Florida held its annual golf cart parade. Many of the residents decorated their carts with flashing lights, tinsel, ornaments and even music to help usher in the holiday season. My mom and her little dog Daisy in her festive red coat rode along on a tour of all the streets. The people who did not have carts sat out to watch the parade go by. And those of us in the carts got to drive by all of the homes, many of which were elaborately decorated with lights.
After the parade, everyone retired to … (0 comments)

zephyrhills: Hurricane Dorian Finally on the Move Northward along Florida Coast - 09/03/19 08:28 AM



As of 11 AM today, Tuesday, 9/3/2019, Hurricane Dorian's has finally begun to move away from the Bahamas where it has set and battered them for over a day with winds of over 150 mph. Though it is moving very slowly, its direction is no longer to the west but to the northwest. Just as the experts had predicted. The experts now say that it will likely stay just off shore in the Atlantic as it moves more north and northeasterly in the days to come. Its track will likely become more NORTH. From what I hear on the Weather Channel, … (1 comments)

zephyrhills: Hurricane Dorian will Likely Miss Most of Florida! Nice!!! - 08/31/19 02:30 PM



As of 5 PM today, 8/31/2019, now Hurricane Dorian's projected path has changed drastically since my post of yesterday. The experts now say that it will pass us out to sea in the Atlantic on Monday and Tuesday of next week. If you look at the "cone" you will notice that most of Florida, including Zephyrhills, Pasco County and Tampa are no longer included.
One of the reporters on the Weather Channel said that the storm would likely pass Cape Kennedy while 100 miles out into the Atlantic. That is a pretty good buffer zone if it comes true. Most of … (2 comments)

zephyrhills: Tropical Storm Dorian enters the Caribbean August 27, 2019 - 08/27/19 03:28 PM

As of today, 8/27/2019, Tropical Storm Dorian has passed Antigua and Barbados and continues on a projected northwest path. We are still several days away from any Florida landfall, if it makes it as far as here. But if you look at its trajectory, you will note that the National Hurricane Center is predicting that it will remain a tropical storm for now. However, as in the past, these storms can be unpredictable and can strengthen quickly. It does appear to go over Puerto Rico and they certainly don't need more problems from the weather. I hope they are luckier this time … (1 comments)

zephyrhills: 2019 Truth in Millage Notices Arriving at Homeowners Properties Now - 08/20/19 04:47 PM

When I opened my mailbox today (8/19/2019), I found a letter from Gary Joiner, the Pasco County Property Appraiser of the county where I live, telling me what my proposed property taxes for 2019 would likely be. Probably most of Florida's residents are also receiving these notices, also called Truth in Millage (TRIM). notices. It is worth your while to closely examine the one that pertains to the property(s) that you own.
The notice will show you 3 main things:
What your property taxes were last year. What they will be this year if proposed budget changes are not made. What they will be if … (0 comments)

zephyrhills: Thanksgiving Dinner 2018 in Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, FL - 11/22/18 11:51 AM
Here in Zephyrhills, Florida, many of our winter residents have now returned. Often their families are back in northern states. This is also true for our permanent residents. So many subdivisions like Spanish Trails Village, a 55+ subdivision, have potluck dinners on special occasions and holidays. For Christmas and Thanksgiving they have a traditional turkey dinner with all of the fixings. Residents contribute a dish to the feast and for the past 4 years, I have purchased the turkeys/hams for the dinner. I also do this for Colony Hills, South Hill and Zephyr Shores subdivisions. As you can see by the … (3 comments)

zephyrhills: The 2018-19 School Year has Begun in Pasco County, Florida - 08/15/18 05:27 PM
Florida's students and teachers have returned to their classes in the public schools of Pasco County, Florida for the 2018-2019 academic year. I suspect that this will be the case in nearly every county in the State of Florida.
When I was teaching here two decades ago, we started after Labor Day. And many schools around the country still do. But several years ago, statewide exams were created and it was felt that more time was needed to prepare for them. So the beginning of the school year was moved up by several weeks.
In any case, there will be more children and school … (0 comments)

zephyrhills: Hurricane Irma Set to go All the Way up the Florida Peninsula - 09/08/17 05:04 PM

As of today, 9/8/2017, Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 storm, is about to skim over the northern coast of Cuba and then take a right turn and head directly up the Florida peninsula in a northerny trajectory. It had been thought that it would go up along the eastern coast of the state, but this afternoon the projections show it going further west. Now it appears that the eye will go up the middle of the state. Warnings and watches are up all the way to Tampa, mostly for storm surge and flooding. However, they say that very high winds will … (1 comments)

zephyrhills: Floridians need to keep a close watch on Hurricane Irma! - 09/05/17 04:46 PM

As of today, 9/5/2017, Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 storm, is projected to move along the northern Caribbean Sea touching the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Haiti and the Dominican Republic. If it continues along this path it looks like it will go directly over the Florida Keys and then move into the Gulf of Mexico. As you can see in the above image, its projected path has it moving in more or less a westerly direction, with its center going over the Keys on Sunday afternoon. That is still a few days off and its path could change. The most northern fringe of … (1 comments)

zephyrhills: Should You Retire Your Mobile Home Titles? That Depends! - 06/29/17 06:00 PM
Not long ago I got a letter from the Florida State Retirement Office. It appears that since I worked for 9 years in the public school system here in Pasco County, I could now start collecting early retirement if I want to. It is not a lot of money since I only taught 9 years here, and 12 years in Spain which don't count. However, a few hundred dollars each month is still better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
Many people do not realize that mobile homes also have a retirement option, and I don't mean demolition. A … (0 comments)

zephyrhills: Florida is Bidding Hurricane Matthew a Fond Farewell - 10/07/16 06:14 AM

As you can see on the above image, the center of Hurricane Matthew is now near the Florida/Georgia border and a long way from Zephyrhills, Pasco County and Tampa. Though it has been breezy last night and today the winds were in no way scary. When I drove a round town I saw some SMALL branches and palm fronds in yards, but nothing big. And the rains were not much more than our regular summer showers that happen. Maybe an inch or so. As far as I know we had no power outages locally.
Perhaps there is some isolated damage caused by … (0 comments)

zephyrhills: Hurricane Matthew Update - Path Moves More Westerly - 10/04/16 07:23 AM

As of today, 10/4/2016, Hurricane Matthew, a Category 4 storm, is slowly moving between Cuba and Haiti. As you can see in the above image, its projected path has it moving in a northwesterly direction, with its center grazing the eastern coast of Florida around Friday of this week. That is still a few days off and its path could change. The most western part of the cone even touches Zephyrhills where I live. Though the edges of the cone should not get nearly the damage that the center does. And being on the western side of the storm is typically better, from … (0 comments)

zephyrhills: Will Hurricane Matthew Visit Florida? Be Prepared Just in Case! - 10/02/16 05:06 AM

As of today, 10/2/2016, Hurricane Matthew, a Category 4, storm is still south of Cuba, but is predicted to make a northerly turn shortly. As you can see in the above image, its projected path has it moving in a northerly direction, skirting Florida's east coast on Thursday and Friday of this week. However, that is a long way off in the life of a hurricane, so anything is possible. We certainly hope that the forecasts are correct and that it does not move to a more westerly track taking it right up the center of the state.
This storm definitely bears watching. … (3 comments)
