Sharing is caring!

We had some localized rain storms in the area yesterday, but the rest of the day was really nice and the early evening was really beautiful.  Today we’ll have patchy fog before 7:00 am. Otherwise, sunny, with a high near 82 degrees. Tonight will be partly cloudy with a low of 63.

Here’s a photo Sarah took in my yard after the rain yesterday.  It’s the little things…

Recent evidence shows that millennials are fleeing large, more expensive cities for more affordable, smaller locales (like the Deep Creek Lake area). The COVID-19 pandemic may continue to fuel this trend as dense city living becomes less attractive. Additionally, the economic and financial uncertainty that many Americans now face will make buying a home in pricey, large cities less feasible. In Maryland, 42.8% of millennials own their homes. Check out this new study for more insight. 

And, here’s a photo of a triple bloom that my wife took yesterday in our yard after the rain. This one even has an added bonus with the grasshopper included at no extra charge.
