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!

It's melting

A very windy and warm day today for the season. It is a sweltering 45 degrees as I write this. The icicles that surrounded this house just a couple days ago now makes it look as if it is raining they are melting away so fast. Not knowing what to take for a picture today, the only thing that kept coming to my mind was the melting. So today I am posting for my picture(s) of the day is the evidence of the melting of the snow.
What was a beautiful white encased street just a couple days ago is now a big bunch of slush in our streets.

I have been seeing pictures of "drips" on others blogs and thought I would give it a try. For a first timer, I am happy with this one,

And really happy with this. I love the separated droplet that came up and out of the drip!

Allison: Nice Pictures..

I like the Middle one, The effect of it kind of reminds me of a Sand Dollar.

Keep up the good work! I will holler at you soon...

A regular heat wave you have going there. I used to love sitting outside watching the ice cycle's melting. There was always something interesting about seeing the ice turn to water and dip gracefully to the ground.

To Handi, I have to agree. It does look a bit like a sand dollar.
And to Eric S. There is without a doubt something mesmerizing about a melting icicle!

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!
