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!

A home made ice sculpture!

Not a clue what it is called, I am sure it has something to do with "ice sculpting" but you see it in these mountain towns quite a bit. A person turns their hose on low when the weather is freezing and in the morning it is always something different. If a person keeps it up a;; winter it can be truly remarkable what may form. Yesterday hubby and I went outside in the backyard and decided to see what would happen if we tried it. So with pipe in hand, we placed our hose up the side connected the two together added a sprinkler nozzle, placed the water on low, and this is what I woke up to this morning. I was pretty excited about it because we have never done it before, and are not sure how much water is needed. (yes we are aware of the water dilemma and let me assure you we did not use that much) which is probably why it was not just huge like our neighbors.
 
Looks kind of like a spine X-Ray!
 
You can see how we did the hose and the pipe on this one,
 
And some of the formations that we got from the dripping water!
And of course my favorite picture with the water spraying down onto our new found experiment of  freezing water and hoses!
Pretty , don't you think!
We have turned our water off for the day and will only continue this endeavor where we know the water wil be freezing!

That's pretty cool. I never tried anything like that before. You should make sure to disconnect the hose from your house when your done, so it does not freeze and break the hose bib.

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!
