Nothing Ever Upsets

Nothing Ever Upsets
How often have we seen a 24 hour temperature change like what happened over these past two days?  Yesterday morning it was in the low 30s, yet early this morning it was already 52 degrees, but the real jaw-dropper was finding our Downtown temperatures hovering around 85 degrees this afternoon.  Looks like we're heading into what appears to be ano … continue reading

While Looking Downward

While Looking Downward
It was a bit chilly outside again this morning, so I made sure to dress for it since I'd already planned on getting some much needed yard work done, and as always, several little chores regarding real estate had to get finished first before I could venture out.Believe it or not, I had my nose to the grindstone for nearly eight hours, and for su … continue reading

Down to the Riverside

Down to the Riverside
It was a bit of a surprise to find it not getting much above 55 degrees today considering how clear the skies were.   I'm glad I did dress warmly this morning, because while out showing homes, it was a bit on the chilly side.  When seeing some young men walking about in shorts, I dismissed their hardiness as being far more warm-blooded than I am … continue reading

I was Purged

I was Purged
It would've been a very nice day today if that cold wind hadn't been gusting so much out of the northwest.  In spite of it, I carried on with business as usual, including walking up and down the block where my office is located and picking up all the trash that's been building up in our public flowerbeds and green areas.  What irritates me the mo … continue reading

Cafe Mir

Cafe Mir
With it being in the low 30's before I left home for the office this morning, I figured it best to dress warm, and later glad I did considering how cold that north wind was blowing all day.  Believe it or not, there is still unmelted snow in shaded areas of our City.  After getting out of my car to look at a vacant house this morning, as I turned … continue reading

In-appropriate Language

In-appropriate Language
My day started earlier than normal due to a scheduled appointment.  I managed to get there in plenty of time without being rushed.  Everything went well, and I'm hoping my meeting with my new customer will be an incentive for him to take an active step in getting himself pre-approved for a loan so he can purchase a home.Later this morning I m … continue reading

Self-induced Failures

Self-induced Failures
Since nearly all the big snowbanks are melted, along with that which was piled up at our curbsides, I figured it time to get my broom out and sweep off the front sidewalks of my office before the wind started picking up.  I couldn't believe how much sand and dirt I swept over the curb.  Really not liking all the sand that gets tracked into my off … continue reading

Better to be Naive

Better to be Naive
The normal Monday morning I was expecting, turned a bit upside down by having to deal with several dastardly events that took place over the weekend which were likely created by those who live in darkness.  As the old saying goes, "If it doesn't kill us, it just makes us all the stronger."  At least the sun was shining and our temperatures were g … continue reading

It is Man’s Fate

It is Man’s Fate
As I suspected, it looks like Mother Nature skipped over Spring and is heading right into  summer.  I couldn't believe it was 67 degrees Downtown this afternoon.  I didn't get a chance to look at our extended weather forecast, but it's likely predicting blue skies and warm days ahead.A prospective buyer called around noontime yesterday askin … continue reading

Must be Abolished

Must be Abolished
I was delighted to find it 40 degrees outside early this morning, and figured it would get really warm once the cloud cover cleared, but didn't seem to be the case. At least it stayed above freezing which was a great plus.One of my early appointments was to deliver some pictures to a seller who forgot to take them while moving out of her house … continue reading
