Newest snow starting to stick

Up on Summitt Ridge it was sticking at 5:30pm. Now, 7:10pm it's sticking at my level (entry to Cascade Shores). This looks like a real storm. Friends just called from Truckee, and 80 is closed due to collisions. So tuck in and stay home. I guarantee folks are sliding around in town! Happy Easter. Leg of Lambie in the oven. Stanford girls are winning their game in semi-finals. All good.
Dixie and I walked the neighborhood this morn. It was a real reality check to see just how many homes here are "deserted." No one living in them, no real furniture inside but personal belongings clearly left behind, no"for sale" sign. They just look sad and abandoned, with relics of a prior life strewn around the yard and decks. I suppose there are as many stories as their are empty homes, but I haven't heard them. I know this is a countrywide phenomenon, I just hadn't realized how many there are right in Cascade Shores. Thoughts and prayers for those neighbors who have had to leave their comfy little homes, despite their best effort. Hoping for blue skies and new chances for you in the near future.


  1. We just bought one of those abandoned homes and after exploring the neighborhood it is shocking how many of these fantastic houses are vacant...

  2. good for you! which one did you buy?

  3. We're on Gaston, second house coming from from Lake Lane heading towards Cascade loop.

  4. looooveyour blog. You are full time here, yes? Hope you got to take advantage of easter party for kids at firehouse. Great way to network with other young moms in CS. Good luck. Smart thing buying now. You won't be sorry. At least this recession has offered that opportunity for the "young, married and semi-broke." Love your documentary night. I might have to copy that.
