As we move from winter toward spring, we can breathe a sigh of relief that we have once again survived several months of unpredictable weather, ranging from extreme cold (and a little snow) to unexpected and almost balmy days (often within a day or so of each other!). We are especially fortunate that while many of our Northern Virginia neighbors suffered serious power outages caused by Winter Storm Riley, our underground utilities protected us from such inconvenience and possible expense.
This issue of Ripples, Lakeport’s community newsletter, contains a great deal of important and useful information to keep you informed about both Lakeport and the broader Reston area in which we live. I urge you to read these articles and to consider ways that you can contribute to helping Lakeport (and Reston) continue to be the wonderful community that drew us to live here.
As always, we welcome your comments and responses (firstname.lastname@example.org).
