It Does Rain In Southern California

LA MESA -- Living for many years here in the Village area has continued to make my wife and me very happy and very content. With the recent dampish weather and cooler temperatures mornings have been just a bit damp. So thought I would share a bit of a view of my front yard area on just such a dampish and cool morning. This is generally what I wake to. Really wanted to capture it on canvas. Hope you enjoy it.

Beautiful!  As a former resident of La Mesa (I lived on University Place) who now resides in Spokane, Washington, I really enjoy pictures like this.  Moisture--whether rain, snow, or fog--adds a lot. Thanks for sharing!

3 Facts Crippling California's Housing Recovery

Source: HousingWire

While California’s job growth and economy continue to improve, major hurdles remain for housing’s recovery. Firstly, affordability is a huge concern as rapid home price increases, mixed with a lack of affordable inventory is leaving little room for first-time borrowers to jump into the market.
