Links Back to the Week That Was 12/21

By in Week That Was with 2 Comments

Well, first off, it’s been FREEZING COLD! For crying out loud – the lows have been in the negatives and the highs have been single digits.  THAT’S not a comfortable way to live, I tell you!  It was worse in Spokane, and near tragic in Seattle.

And in case you had some bright ideas about running a generator inside, or hooking up a space heater for the dog house, the Herald offered some better options.

I remember when I was a little girl, asking my dad if there was ANYWHERE in the US where I could live and not have to worry about tornadoes or hurricanes or earthquakes.  Dad shrugged his shoulders and said, “Some corner of Missouri, maybe?”  Well, Dad, this one’s for you.

My beloved Matt McGee found this about snow removal in Richland this week, and its the kind of thing I like to know about.

And, ending on a good note – the Tri-Cities actually gained a few jobs recently.

Stay safe and warm, friends!

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.

    Cari: Thanks for the pickup on the Death Map post (“Well, Dad, this one’s for you”). It sounds as if your Dad knew about the looks of the Death Map way back then. Happy holidays.
