What Tickles Me

What Tickles Me
It was quite the hectic day with appointments and drop-ins.  I think people were out and about getting everything they wanted accomplished while the sun was shining before the storm arrives.  The nasty things I've been hearing about what we're to e … continue reading

Between Taxation
If someone would've asked me as I was leaving the office to recall my day from beginning to end, I would've had to stop and think because of all the intervening circumstances that took place.  Every so often, days like this appear out of nowhere, an … continue reading

Have you Found
Oh Mercy!  We certainly had our workout with the snow today.  I'm not sure how much we ended up getting, but it was more than enough to keep me busy shoveling.  Thank goodness it wasn't so heavy because there must've been another six inches or mor … continue reading

Smell Inside
It was a pretty un-eventful day in real estate other than the normal calls, drop-ins, and appointments to schedule.  Once again, I believe we are running too short on new listings coming on the market for this time of year.  It's nearing the end of … continue reading

Another day in snowy North Iowa  arrived with all the more to be shoveled.  Thank goodness I was proactive about keeping at it yesterday while it was coming down.  The cold was biting until the sun rose high enough to warm the air.It wasn't th … continue reading

Frigid Friday

Frigid Friday
As I was driving to work I viewed yet another spectacular set of sun dogs in the eastern sky.  This morning's was a repeat of a set I spotted about two weeks ago.  Never before in my life have I seen them as large as they have been this year.  It … continue reading

I was shocked to see how quickly our weather changed when seeing it went from a delightful morning and afternoon, to a very windy evening.  I couldn't believe how quickly the roads started drifting over.  Hopefully our City workers will be out earl … continue reading

Thank goodness the wind stopped blowing, but soon realized this morning I had to do some re-shoveling due to overnight drifting. At least the sun was shining brightly which made the cold more bearable.  Having not seen it in some days, it seemed all … continue reading

The Northwood Anchor
In spite of all the complaining being done about this snowstorm, at least we didn't get as much as predicted.  I'd say we ended up with somewhere around four inches on average, but with the wind blowing again, there's definitely been some drifting g … continue reading

I guess I was off by about 24 hours when thinking it was going to snow last night when now seeing it starting to snow.  There were appointments cancelled earlier today because of a winter weather advisory which claimed we were supposed to be getting … continue reading
