In addition, Timber Greens Country Club is a 18 hole golf community. The residents must be 55 plus to buy a home or villa there. It is one of the top 10 golf communities in Tampa Bay and Ron Garl designed. My  golf playing friends tell me the course is a challenging one. The many conservation areas surround Timber Greens and the scenery is beautiful.

Furthermore, the 18-hole championship course at Timber Greens Country Club in New Port Richey, Florida features 6,133 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71. The course rating is 71.5 and it has a slope rating of 124 on Bermuda grass.  

Certainly, the residents enjoy the fabulous pool, the clubhouse with many activities, the restaurant/bar, the dining room, and the pro-shop if you are a golfer. Many of our residents don’t play golf; they bought in Timber Greens because it is such a great place to live. The residents are fun and friendly.

Why Does Lightning Change Colors

Why Does Lightning Change Colors. After Storm Hermine in New Port Richey FL things are much quieter. Last night, well it was early a.m. today, the storm was spectacular. Noisy, and full of lights and colors.

Why Does Lightning Change Colors

The lightning during that storm was red, yellow, orange, blue or plain old white.  I thought I imagined it (the effect of not enough sleep and too much storm) but I searched Google and, yes, lightning does appear as different colors depending on the atmosphere.

Why Does Lightning Change Colors

 

From Dan Robinson,  Storm Chaser/Photographer

 Lightning traveling through open air emits white light, but can appear in different colors depending on local atmospheric conditions. Distant lightning can appear red or orange the same way the setting sun does, due to moisture, haze, dust, etc in the lower levels of the atmosphere. Light emitted by lightning has a similar visible spectrum as sunlight (white light), so the atmosphere should shift the colors of both the same way – given there is enough distance between the lightning and the observer.
Since shorter wavelengths are scattered more, red light is more likely than blue light to reach your eyes directly from the source, and blue light is more likely than red light to reach them after being scattered.

Hurricane Hermine is gone from here now.

 
It was a very exciting show of lightning and I hope I get to see it again sometime. I even woke my husband who said (grumpily, I thought), “Oh, nice” and promptly fell asleep again.
Hurricane Hermine did lots of damage to our area but no loss of life. Flooding is a big problem in some neighborhoods. Trees fell down like matchsticks. The trees roots and the ground around them become 
saturated and cannot support the tree so down it goes. Unfortunately, they tend to target cars, roofs, and screen structures around pools.  The insurance companies will be busy. What a disastrous start to the Labor Day Weekend. 
In the meantime, I have a closing today in Timber Greens Country Club (where I live) where there is no flooding, no trees down. 
Have a wonderful holiday weekend and stay safe and dry.

TS Hermine may bring flooding to our low-lying areas so please drive carefully. If a street looks flooded, do not drive onto it. 6 inches of fast moving water can knock an adult down and carry them away. 12 inches of fast-moving water can carry away a small car.

Remember: when flooded, turn around. Don’t Drown.

Pasco County has dealt with some flooded streets and subdivisions during previous storms. Some have been upgraded but some have not. 

Those of you who are new to our area, don’t panic. Most areas do not experience flooding. Hopefully, when you bought your Florida home, you checked out the Florida flood zone maps before purchase.

Finally, if you are heading for a shelter, be sure to ask if you can take your pet(s) with you prior to heading over there. Or find a boarding kennel that is accepting pets for the storm period.

What are the best type of pools for resale value?

Definitely in-ground, and most people like to have it screened in with a walk-around deck and a covered patio area for getting out of the sun. As for what it’s made of, that seems to be a strictly personal choice. Some prefer concrete; others like vinyl. It’s up to you.

Port Richey Home Sales 2nd Quarter 2016

Port Richey Home Sales 2nd Quarter 2016 shows a significant decrease of homes on the market at 139. Inventory keeps slipping away. 1st Quarter 2016  totaled 172.  You can view last quarter’s post here.

To clarify: What does this mean? The buyers are looking for the right home to buy within their budget. However, homes come on the market and are sold within a day or two before most of the buyers are made aware of them.  Sooner or late, prices rise due to the shortages which eliminates some buyers who qualified for a lower amount.

*Statistics are courtesy of MLSMFR for Pasco County.

Formerly, the two most popular subdivisions in Port Richey are Embassy Hills and Regency Park. These were started in the early 1970’s and built for the more affluent Northern buyers; mostly retirees. They tended to have Spanish exterior styles, barrel tile roofs, and small backyards.  Today, these homes sell from the $40’s and up.

Trinity Home Sales Report 2nd Q 2016

Trinity Home Sales Report 2nd Q 2016

The big question is: Does Trinity, FL really exist? And, yes, it does; even though it shares the same zip code with New Port Richey, FL (34655).

To clarify; Trinity was a subdivision when it started and since has become it’s own entity.  No, there is no town/city of Trinity. However, the southern area of New Port Richey is known far and wide as Trinity.  Occupying the area around Little Road and State Road 54, it has it’s own highway known as Robert Trent Jones Parkway which carries folks into the many individual complexes. And, to the Fox Hollow Golf Club and recreation areas.
