Quiet Snow in Active Rain

By
Real Estate Agent with Leading Edge Properties

So its been about 2 weeks since I've written a blog post or a comment.  Well, see, I had a nasty cold that kicked my a** for over a week.  By the time I got back to work, things had predictably piled up on my desk.  I've gotten pretty much caught up, so back to the Rain!

I have a couple of new projects:  Chairing the Education Committee for our Board and taking over the helm of our homeowner's association. 

Just call me Madame President.

Ok, you don't have to.

I'm honored to be involved with both organizations.  I'll talk more about the Ed. Comm. in later blogs, but right now I have to brag on my neighborhood.  Avon Bend on the Shenandoah is a pretty community located next to the Shenandoah River, which actually curves around our community.  Its beautiful.  The Blue Ridge Mountains hover over us providing a gorgeous vista throughout the year. 

Last night we got some heavy, wet snow.  I took these very unprofessional shots from my deck this morning:

My yard this morning

 

Both of these shots are from west to east.  Mr. Sunshine puts on a pretty spectacular show almost every morning. 

I know this isn't really about REAL ESTATE, but who cares?  And I probably should have waited to post on "Wordless Wednesday," but remaining wordless isn't my strong suit...

Amy,

Glad you are doing better.  We were only forecasted to get 1 inch of snow, instead we got 6 inches of wet snow.  It took me 2 1/2 hours to get from Winchester to Petersburg in my 2WD pick up with most of the time sitting on Corridor H because everyone was stopping their cars in the middle of the road.  I love to look at it but not drive in it.

this may be an old joke, and likely not funny to those outside of scottsdale and great phoenix, BUT, "what is the white stuff in the pictures"

Hey, Madame President. Glad you back and feeling better. I like your "unprofessional shots," and the last time I checked, snow falls on, sun shines on, and people get sick in, real estate, so this is, indeed, about real estate, right? LOL

Amy,

Congratulations on becoming President!    We got a fresh coat of snow both yesterday and today.   If you are interested you can see a recent post (with no numbers whatsoever) with photos of the white tree branches here in Red Lodge.

Do you want some more snow? We had a little dusting last night and I'm done with it, I don't need more snow! Life isn't always about real estate an so why should your blog be? (Don't change a thing)
