A little background on why I named this blog what I did.

I should probably do a little explaining on my title of this blog. First my last name is White. Therefore I live in the "White House." Living in the "White House" makes me the 1st Lady. My physical address says I live in Westwood Ca. (not the one by Los Angeles) but a little mountain town in Northeastern Ca. However I really live in a section out of Westwood known as Pinetown. With all the joking going on between my friends, I inevitably became Pinetowns 1st Lady living in the "White House." With all that said, this is just going to be a more personal blog of my life here in Westwood/Pinetown. My family and friends being a big part of it.
Originally I really wanted to take a picture a day for one year and post it on this blog. Perhaps like a photo diary. My life though is quite quiet and perhaps is not photo worthy for a picture a day but I plan on trying. So why not hop in and take a ride with me through little mountain town U.S.A. You may just love it as much as I do!

I have been walking on the railroad (tracks) Day 79

Off today I go, knowing exactly where and with what intentions for my picture(s) of the day will be. Absolutely beautiful day here in Westwood, I was welcoming the walk to town along with being thankful for the benefits! Fresh air, warmth on my back. The solitude I am finding because of this blog, again was an unexpected surprise. The walks with no-one except me there, enjoying the things I do so delight in. (Like today I heard a bunch of frogs) I love frogs, and they seemed to have vanished from around here these last few years. I not only don't see them, I never hear them any more! Friends and aquaintances that see me walking asking if I want a lift. So far except once by Mrs. Q on voting day I have declined. We will see if I decline so easily in the dead of winter LOL! So without further ado, I give to you a little piece of the westwood R.R. and I do not mean R&R. LOL!!!
From Ash Street.

Getting close to the tracks. Just look at those blades in front!

And from behind

In case you can not read below the numbers, it says Rotary Snowplow Power Plant, something I need and want to look into further

Sooo pretty, don't you think?

I wish it could be seen better, but the white sign on the right says Westwood as these tracks start to turn the corner.

Nice pictures. There was an old round house in Como. In the days of the railroad, the kept and old rotary snowplow there. Of course it was steam powered, because the rail road was taken up in 1932. I have seen pictures of they snowplow in actions on Boreas Pass. At times they had to post men on top of it with shovels to clear an addition couple of feet that was above the hieght of the snowplow.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I am Chihuatude on BC, and have added you as a friend.

View Larger Map This is where I live. To the right of Westwood barely visible is the little section I live in called Pinetown. We have probably 150 to 200 people for our population. Westwood on the other hand is HUGE by comparison with a population of around 2000!
