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!


Only in Lassen County

Only in Lassen County is a saying shared by a lot of people when it comes to our weather. Last few days the thunder and lightning storms had us all prepared for forest fires due to lightning strikes. Last night and today the temperature dropped 15-20 degrees here in Lassen County. Along with a ton of rain, (although it did bring more lightning) we had a freak hail storm. It was even reported that there would be snow in the higher elevations.
Watching this hail and listening to it hit the windows, with the wind I was sure we might just end up with a cracked window!
When it was all done doing it's storming, I thought I would take the dogs out for a walk and enjoy that wonderful mountain air after a summer rain. Since it was so cold some of us even lit our woodstoves. We were no exception.
Below is a picture of a chair I have on my front porch. This was a good 45 minutes to an hour after the hail quit. I could not believe my eyes!
This is how cold it was outside that much time later

The hail had not even melted.

Howdy Hi!
I would love to hear what you have to say. Why not leave me a comment?

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!
