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 ghost town

Afew days ago I wrote on this blog that rumor had it our one and only bank was to close it's doors in 90 days. In our weekly newspaper, the Lassen County Times, that is delivered on Tuesdays in Susanville and Wednesdays in Westwood confirmed that rumor when I opened it up this morning.
As you can imagine the town is freaking out! I could go on and on about how bad I along with others in this town think this is going to be. What will happen to this town now is getting more apparent. We will be a ghost town before to long.
No pharmacy
No Drs.
Now no bank!
Add to that they even shut down 2 continuation schools in our little town. I do not see us making it. It is sad. Westwood is a beautiful town with great fishing,hunting, boating, skiing, both water and snow, and the town I chose to raise my sons in 30 years ago is going straight to hell.
I am sooo worried.
I better stop now as I really could write a whole blog on what's going on here.
Todays picture(s) is our one and only soon to close bank.

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!
