I can’t believe it is December already. As I am writing, I am watching it snow. It is so beautiful and quiet outside. A perfect day to sit in front of the fire with a good book.
According to all the weather folks and NOAA, this storm promises to be a major snow producer. The prediction varies according to who you listen to, but at least a foot is predicted. So stay warm and safe. Please take the time to check on your neighbors and friends. And please don’t be afraid to ask for help if you need it.
I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving. We are so thankful for family and friends. Out grandchildren provided us with lots of joy and give us so much for which to be thankful.
The Ranch of the Rockies Christmas party is the big event this month. It will be on December 14, 2013 at Fire Station #5 located of Ranch and Campfire Rds. It is scheduled from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. You are asked to bring a side dish, salad, or desert. The Ranch will provide the meat, rolls, soda, coffee, and water.
We will again have a gift exchange. There is a $10 maximum spending limit. Children’s gifts will be separate. New this year will be an Ugly Sweater Contest. So now is the time to dig out those sweaters you said you’d never wear again and wear it. We will have door prizes and address sign certificates again this year.
Please call the ranch office at 836-2079 if you plan to attend so we can get an idea of numbers. We hope to see everyone there to share the holiday season with us
Take time to reach out to friends and loved ones and share the joys of this holiday season. Reach out to those who may find the holidays a painful time of year.
The Board of Directors wish all of you Happy Holidays. May 2014 be as good as 2013 or better.

The morning after our first real snow of 2013
I thought about what to write this time, and because it is so busy and people don’t have a lot of extra time to sit and read someone else’s thoughts, I’ll keep it brief. I want to share a few things that I’m thankful for.
- My faith in God and knowing He takes care of my family, friends and me.
- My husband, Terry. He’s my best friend, and I feel so blessed to be able to say that!
- My children, their spouses and my grandchildren. I love being Mema!! I know what it feels like to have my heart melt when they wrap their arms around my neck, give me a hug and say, “I love you, Mema!”
- My/our wonderful friends.
- Our beautiful home that my husband built.
- Our beloved dog, Dammie who is still running around and doing well at over 20-years old! He’s a marvel!
- The jobs my husband and I have. We’re very lucky to have such great jobs living up here in the mountains where jobs aren’t always plentiful!
That’s a good start. Have you taken time to think about what you are thankful for? It’s a great exercise in realizing the wonderful things we are surrounded by every day.
One more thing I’m thankful for: YOU! Thank you for being a neighbor. What a wonderful place we live in!
Hope to see you at the Christmas party on Saturday, December 14th! I’m looking forward to seeing everyone there!
Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!
Treasurer, RORA BOD

Where does the time go? How many times have we asked this question? I know I am guilty. We only have 3 weeks until Thanksgiving, Winter Solstice on December 21, 2013 @ 10:11 A.M. Then Christmas right on Old Man Winter heels.
The annual Ranch Christmas party is in the planning stage and the date and time will be released in the next few days.
I have no new information concerning the blocking of CR 55. When I receive new info I will have it posted on the RORA web.
The BOD is working on the budget for 2014. If you have any ideas or suggestions please let us know.
Please feel free to stop by a Board meeting, or let the BOD know if you see anything we can do to make life better on Ranch of the Rockies.
