Greetings!  Deep Creek Lake was not spared the Friday night storm.  We were personally lucky to have avoided a power outage but some others were not so fortunate.  The radio said there were roughly 4,000+ people without power after the storm.  There are still a few isolated areas without power.  We did, however, fare much better than areas to our East.  Many of our clients and friends made an unscheduled visit to their vacation homes at Deep Creek Lake because they were without power in the DC and northern VA areas.

The DockDogs event that was held at Wisp this weekend was quite a site to see!  I was out of town but my wife Betsy was fascinated by how far some of these dogs can jump, from Chihuahua’s to German Shepherd’s.  It’s definitely an event that will go on my 2013 calendar.  P.S. The dog is hard to spot in this photo; he’s flying through the air just to the left of the red ball!

Now, on to the beautiful weather and fun 4th of July week ahead of us.  The fireworks display will take place at dusk on Wednesday evening from the tubing park at Wisp Resort.  You can watch from your car along Garrett Highway, by boat in McHenry Cove or from the Independence Day Concert taking place under the tent at Garrett College (beginning at 7:30pm).  This week, July 5-7, at Garrett College under the tent is “Chautauqua”.  “Exploring the War of 1812 in Maryland” is the theme.  The complete schedule is on the link below.


Looking ahead…The 91st Annual Western Maryland Tennis Championships are scheduled on the clay courts in Mountain Lake Park August 2-5th.  Whether you are a tennis player or enjoy being a spectator, you can catch some great tennis!


The Spiker Team’s featured listing of the week is a beautiful home within 5 minutes of Deep Creek Lake on 5 acres with its own pond, stream and barn.  Convenient country living!
