Weather in the Tri-Cities

is crazy, natch.

(See what I just did there?  I started a sentence in the title, but ended it on the first line of the post.  My husband HATES it when people do that.  I love it!  I do it all the time in blog posts and e-mails. I’m sure if there were a way to speak in such a manner, I’d do that, too!)

Anyway, our weather does consist of four distinct seasons, which is really nice for a southern California girl like me.  We don’ t often have snow in December, but we often have it in January and February.  This year, we had a light, pretty snowfall on the 28th of December, and again on the 31st.  Then, on the evening of the 1st of January, a veritable Chinook wind blew through town and everything melted away like it was March, all of a sudden.

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.
