Wordless Wednesday...Cedaredge, Colorado After the Rain. It started raining yesterday night and it kept raining throughout the night. I live on a mesa outside of town, so I get a bird's eye view of the town every morning as I'm driving in to work.  I leave the house early to take my daughter to school, and we had some pretty great scenery to help wake us up. It was a beautiful morning, and I just thought I would share these pictures. Cedaredge, Colorado is a small mountain town with about 1800 people. It sits at the base of Grand Mesa...the world's largest flattop mountain. The Grand Mesa Scenic Byway runs north and south through Cedaredge and up over Grand Mesa. The clouds are hovering along the sides of Grand Mesa. Click here for more information on The Grand Mesa Scenic Byway. For mo...

There's No Blue In This Blue Moon, Cedaredge, Colorado. This is the last blue moon for 3 years. Blue moon is a term used to describe a month that has two full moons. The phrase isn't used to describe the moon's color, but apparently is used to describe the infrequency of this occurrence.   My daughter took this picture as we were driving home on Thursday night...one night before the official full, blue moon status. The moon is a difficult thing to photograph, but she did great. Our next blue moon will happen on July 31, 2015. A full moon happens every 29.5 days. Due to it's short number of days, February is the only month that will never have a blue moon.

How Does Your Garden Grow??? Cedaredge, Colorado. Well mine does pretty well with very little effort from me, and thank goodness for that, because I've been really busy. I elect to grow all of my veggies and herbs without chemicals. I've grown all my gardens organically for about 20 years now. But how does my garden grow so well with so little attention from me? It's because of my husband. Dan's out there every morning checking the plants and pulling weeds. ( I reserve my weed pulling fun for the weekend, when I tend to have more time. )                 Dan really likes to hear about the blogs I write and he asked me over a week ago to do a blog on our garden. I thought I would share his pictures with you. He's so proud of his efforts. Melons are a real challenge for us due to our eleva...

Wordless Wednesday...I Guess This Property Owner REALLY Wants a Change. My daughter and I saw this sign yesterday in a very rural area of our rural area. I guess someone is really unhappy. I've never seen a political sign quite like this one, and it's too good NOT to share. This sign stands alone. I hope you all get a chuckle out of this one or an awakening.

The Top 10 Signs You Live In a Rural Area. Many of you have heard me refer to my area as an extremely rural area, but maybe you don't really know what this distinction really means. So I've compiled a list of things that should help you see just how rural my area really is. These things describe Western Colorado living perfectly. The Top 10 Signs You Live In a Rural Area: 10. You are surrounded mostly by National Forest Service or Farm Land. 9. Your traffic jams are caused by livestock or tractors moving down the road. 8. Your real estate signs are frequently used for target practice. 7. You can get all the business owners in your town to agree to wear Hawaiian shirts on Fridays... and they do. 6. You have town events celebrating things like apples and sweet corn. 5. Your town just got ...

The Recent Rains Have Left Us With Some Great Cedaredge, CO Area Photo Opps. These pictures were taken from my deck by my daughter. Lately we've had some rain in the Cedaredge area of Delta County, but we are still at a level 2 fire ban, and that is pretty serious. When you get the rains, it feels nice, but the next day it warms up in the 90's again, and that doesn't help the fire danger situation. But as my daughter reminds me, with these pictures, there is still a bright spot and there are still wonderful things that Mother Nature has for us. Cedaredge, CO is located at the base of Grand Mesa. The world's largest flattop mountain. We are considered part of the banana belt, so our winters are mild. I can say this because I grew up in Iowa and Illinois and I think the winters are just g...

What A Sight For Sore Eyes...Cedaredge, Colorado. People Were Coming Out To The Street To Look. Unless you've been living in a cave for the last two months, you know how dry the west is. Today it rained, and it was a great sight to see.   You have to love the sound, the smell and the feel of the rain...especially when you haven't seen it in many, many months. It rained for over an hour and a half. We get a bit of relief from the heat and the dryness. The forecast is calling for rain for the next few days...just isolated thunderstorms, but we'll take what we can get. For today we have some relief, and no worries of fires. This storm should be heading from the Western Slope to the Front Range of Colorado and I hope you all get some relief there as well. What a great day. Covering Delta an...

Wordless Wednesday...My Daughter Took This Picture At Our Pond. She used the inexpensive Kodak Play Sport. It's an under water camera and is good under water down to 3 feet. It's a five mega pixel little video and still shot camera. It's really made for video and does a nice job. But the still pics come out great, too.                     For more information on Delta and Montrose County Real Estate, give me a call.

Cedar Mesa, Cedaredge, Delta County, Colorado...Talk About Views. Just past the Cedaredge Saddle Club Rodeo Grounds and up the hill is Cedar Mesa. This area is to the east of Cedaredge, Colorarado in Delta County. Cedar Mesais at the base of Grand Mesa and runs south through the Surface Creek Valley.             Whether you are looking for a panoramic view over the edge and down into town, or you want a sweeping view of the valley and surrounding mountains, Cedar Mesa has it. The above picture shows the view of The Black Canyon of The Gunnison. It's too bad there's still some smoke haze in the air from the wildfires.     The area is a mix of older and newer stick built and manufactured houses. Lot sizes range from just over an acre to parcels over 80 acres. Prices vary according to lot ...

Brookdale Subdivision, Cedaredge, Colorado. All homes in this established neighborhood have at least two acres, so it's a great place for horses, or that hobby farm. Brookdale Subdivision sits just outside of Cedaredge, Colorado for that country feel, yet you are less than two miles from town. The north end of Brookdale Subdivision has great views of Grand Mesa and larger parcels. Cedaredge Land Company has one listed right now that includes a large pond suitable for fish and eight acres with a very large house.                   There is another smaller house with smaller acreage also available. Cedaredge Land Company has this one listed as well. This is a popular area for many buyers in the Cedaredge, Colorado area. Irrigation water is available through the HOA, which is the only reas...

The After Effects of Carelessness...Cedaredge Fire, Delta County, Colorado. In spite of the Delta County fire ban, and noticeable winds, some people decided to burn some weeds around their house. The upper end of the Surface Creek Road area outside of Cedaredge, CO, caught on fire. One young man was hospitalized with injuries received from trying to warn the very neighbors that started the fire. The picture to the left shows the after effect of the Cedaredge Fire. Both Delta and Montrose County, Colorado, have a fire ban in effect. This means no open fires, agricultural burning, fireworks of any kind and weed burning. Oops, I guess someone forgot about that.                   In a few days this forest service fire danger sign will go from very high to extreme fire danger. There's no sig...

Scenes From The Cedaredge Fire, Delta County, Colorado. At about 2:00 this afternoon you could hear a steady stream of sirens heading north out of town. With the hot, dry weather we've been having, this could only mean one thing. Every truck our volunteer fire department has is in use right now. Other area fire departments are also on the scene, with some firefighters coming from as far away as Montrose, Colorado. That's about 50 miles away. The slurry planes and helicopters are on the scene, too. This helicopter is grabbing water from a pond just a quarter of a mile from where he's dropping the water.                     This scene almost made me cry. I know what that black smoke means. This is a house that caught fire. Several structures have burned, but this is the first house I know...

What Should Have Been My First Choice, Was My Last Choice. This is NOT an advertisement for my company, but a bit about me. Cedaredge Land Company isn't my company...I don't own it, but I've called it my home away from home for two and half years. This is where I spend a good deal of my time, and where I've made some really great friends. I got my real estate license in July of 2007, right when the market tanked in my rural area. The slow market conditions made my new career venture seem very scary, but I had just finished up ten years as a stay at home mom, and this career choice was going to be something I did for me. It was difficult enough being new to the business, and not knowing the different local real estate offices made it even more challenging. Which office should I choose? F...
