Winter Snow Warning a Miss

Published by under General Information

After 24 hours of Winter Watch, Storm Warnings and Snow Alerts, it was the event that never happened. The 12 inch prediction for La Veta turned into only  a 2 inch trace of powder. And the 18 inch expected for Cuchara didn’t happen either.  Too bad, because we do need the moisture.  Forecast next week into the 60’s.

According to the FHA, currently, 3.4 million households with loans endorsed on or before May 31, 2009, pay more than a five percent annual interest rate on their FHA-insured mortgages. By refinancing through the FHA’s streamlined process with the lower insurance costs and lower interest rates, borrowers could save an estimated $250 a month or $3,000 a year. If your loan is current, they waive any new appraisal and credit scoring requirements.
