Not really. We bought this place in 1986 so we could live here and have my business on the same piece of property. It's about 1 1/2 miles from town in farm country, but this piece at one time was part of some commercial property that housed a truck stop and restaurant, and at one time a tomato grading station. We got it rezoned to industrial in the early 90s, but most of the ground around us is still farmed. It looked like it might all go to commercial/residential at one time, but the slump in the economy changed that. Since we've been here, the field behind us has had a multitude of crops, including wheat, tomatoes, melons, onions, and up until today, alfalfa. It has been nice for the past 7 years with the hay behind us, because it is virtually dust free. That ended today, when the disc came and started working the ground. The alfalfa had reached the end of it's useful life. However, since the possibilities of development have dwindled, the owner of the property leased the ground to one of the local younger farmers, and by the first of the year, there will be a little over 240 acres of almonds planted behind us, which will make for a pleasant "back yard" in the future. My biggest complaint is that I love to be able to see what is going on in the neighborhood, and trees will end most of that. Oh, well. We plan on selling in 2-3 years anyway, so I guess id really doesn't matter. Anyway, I snapped this quick photo this morning. The Caterpillar Challenger 65 is pulling a 24' disc with a ring roller behind it - the first of many pieces of equipment to prep the place for the trees. I took this particular photo so you could also see the crop duster in the center. He's spraying the tomato field across the street. Another item of interest - that long gray building you see in the lower right - that's what will soon be the new Amazon distribution center that should open in a few months. Just out of the photo on the right is Best Buy's warehouse. The mountain range in the background is called The Altamont - home of the rock concert years ago. Beyond that about 70 miles San Francisco and the rest of the bay area. You can even see a little of the fog bank pushing it's way over the mountains. Sorry it's such a crummy photo. Combination of lousy camera and operator.
