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!

Now a reality

On December 28th of last year I wrote a post entitled "My biggest fear realized".
I tried to get a couple of laughs out of it. It was about my fear of the well over 100 year old pine tree that sits right next to my house breaking a limb and crashing onto the house, or worse yet onto some one.
Well it sort of happened, (not hurting the house or anyone else) I looked up into the tree yesterday when I noticed a branch of brown. Upon closer examination I threw myself into a frenzy!
Hanging above our roof was a broken branch that was NOT the size of a pick up stick. Here are some pictures of what we are dealing with on labor day weekend no less.
 
This is a picture of one of the branches that had snapped and was laying on branches below it!
  
Just to show how big this tree is!

  
  
I could not get a picture of the tangled mess we have up there. With these photos I can only really show you how big this massive pine tree is.
At the moment my hubby and I are having words, as he wants to climb up there and cut down our problems. I am seriously against it! It is far too high.

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!
