We received .64" of rain last night, remnants of the hurricane down in the Baja region.
It was coming down so hard that it woke me up about 0230, and the rain gauge showed about .25" at that time, so it must have continued for quite some time.
The future daughter-in-law from Fort Collins was in town this week, so she came over yesterday and we all went out for dinner to a local Greek restaurant.
She said real estate is still "hot" out there, but I guess a "hot market" has different definitions between Fort Collins and L.A.
She looked at the properties I had in my "saved" folder on the real estate websites I use, and said they were all within a 15 minute drive from where they live, and suggested I open up my search parameters a bit to include some areas I thought were too far.
*I* don't mind driving, but my wife does. She absolutely hates driving on the freeways here, and will spend an extra 30~45 minutes using surface streets vs the freeway to go to certain places.
I'm not sure how she'll do in the Fort Collins area. The freeways/Interstates seemed wide-open to me, even when the locals were commenting that the traffic seemed heavy, and the secondary/"County" roads reminded me of driving on similar roads back in Illinois. My wife is not used to driving for 5 miles without a side street or street signs to guide her, and her nav skills are pretty poor.
Guess I'll just have to keep that 7" color screen Magellan Road Mate updated, and get a decent mount for it for her car!
