New House Update

Hi

This update is about the climate of the greater Prescott/Prescott Valley area.

The area enjoys four fairly mild seasons which I think you'd agree look pretty nice based on the info below. Keep in mind that these are "averages of averages" (The average for the month and then the average for each month over a period of 65-66 years. To be certain there are spikes in each month and between the years but generally speaking, I think the data below is a fairly good representation of the "norm".

Retirement Ceremony

Today I spent the afternoon at Ft Meade.

I got to attend Brenda's Retirement ceremony.
It was very nice and well attended.
Lots of fun!

Unfortunately, she will continue to work through 31 December and then at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve Brenda will join the ranks of Federal Employees!
