Personal Pearls

Personal Pearls
Thank goodness we didn't get the eight inches of snow overnight that was expected, but the thick coating of sleet and ice on the sidewalks this morning wasn't exactly pleasing to the eye.  I couldn't believe how few people there were out and about, but I'm sure all the many stayed put indoors rather than risking a fall or getting into a fender-ben … continue reading

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 expect, I'm not so sure people will be doing much of anything once it hits.  I squealed when someone … continue reading

Between Taxation

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, and especially when I already had it fully planned the day before.  Oh well, it came and went without … continue reading

Have you Found

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 more dropped on us.  I don't even want to think about what's coming our way this weekend.There wer … continue reading

Smell Inside

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 February and there's still not much to choose from.  I'm just glad my listings are methodically ge … continue reading

Don’t Think Love

Don’t Think Love
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 the busiest of days in Real Estate considering it was President's Day which meant all our Government o … continue reading

Out of Season

Out of Season
When I awakened around midnight and looked outdoors, I was shocked to see it snowing and even more so when I got up this morning.  I distinctly remember reading the forecast several days ago and it mentioned "possible" light snow.  Well, I'd say today's snow was definitely not a light dusting.  I won't be surprised to hear after it finally stops … continue reading

From his Tailgate

From his Tailgate
Thank goodness the sun finally came out and ended up being above zero nearly all day today. It certainly showed by the number of people out and about because it appeared as if half our population suddenly awakened from a deep hibernation.  Thinking I was going to run my vehicle thru the car wash, that idea went out the window when seeing lines of … 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 must be yet another by-product of climate change.I'm not considering myself so special when iden … continue reading

2019 Valentine’s Day

2019 Valentine’s Day
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 early enough in the morning to get the open-road areas plowed out so people can get to work.The woma … continue reading
