Lemon Meringue

Lemon Meringue
Thank goodness the sun finally began peeking out from behind the clouds today.  I told a couple from out of town who were closing on a property, "With your arrival as new homeowners to our fair City, you've possibly broken this weather curse we've had hanging over our heads since, simply because the sun started to shine when you arrived."  I'm ho … continue reading

Untold Good News

Untold Good News
What in the world are we going to do with all this rain we've been getting?  It seems like a vicious cycle that was created earlier this Spring beginning with all the snow we received in April and May.  People can't even get out in their yards to mow because their lawns are so soggy.  What was even more creepy cool, was when a client of mine tol … continue reading

With the thunder and lightning nearly knocking me out bed last night, I'd say we've been on a wild ride with our weather since April.  Here we are only a day away from the Summer Solstice, and it sure doesn't feel like it's time for the sun to start marching south again.   I'm afraid everyone in North Iowa will be fit to be tied if we're not giv … continue reading

I didn't even look to see how much rain we received last night, but there was enough to create larger puddles out in the fields. While driving on the edge of town today, I noticed areas of corn damping off due to their roots being saturated with water.  There'll be some dead patches of corn if our high water tables don't go down soon.  I had a sh … continue reading

Chronic Combative Disorder

Chronic Combative Disorder
Another real estate day in the life of yours truly came and went with a few memorable happenings which have been stored safely away in my "hard drive".  One of the many blessings and curses I have, is that if I'm listening to someone say something to me, it gets hard-coded, and once in a while, when after enough time has passed, that same person w … continue reading

Wishing you All

Wishing you All
The day didn't start out the best after discovering another planned obsolescence item deciding to go kaput not long after its warranty expired.  When I went to buy a new one, the gentleman at the counter asked if I wanted to buy an extended warranty, I couldn't help but say, "No", because whenever reading the tiny print of extended warranties, the … continue reading

The Cruelest

The Cruelest
The morning hours went pretty fast with several extended appointments I had which turned out to be successful.  The temperatures climbed faster than I would've liked, but at least the wind from the south kept the humidity down.  While looking at the skies early this morning, I was afraid we were going to get another un-wanted storm, but it must'v … continue reading

I took part of today off so to get some personal chores done, and glad I did because waiting until the last minute to get time sensitive jobs finished, is not my cup of tea.  I was reminded again how Realtors, no matter where they are, or what they may be doing, are always a text or cell phone call away.  I wasn't surprised by the number of texts … continue reading

It looks like starting tomorrow, we're going to be bracing for a few days with high heat indexes.  With all the rain we've had, there'll be all that much more humidity.  Several more people mentioned today the unfortunate water seepage in their basements from those two storms that started exactly a week ago.  There are several of my current list … continue reading

Falling Down

Falling Down
With my suddenly being in need of a water heater today, I discovered our City's merchants are still without them.  The aftermath of our past two storms is reminding me all the more of what took place after The Flood of 2008.  I'm seeing more driveways covered with wet carpets and rugs from basements that took in water.  Someone mentioned today t … continue reading
