Tittle Bros. Packing Co.

It was a rather uneventful Tuesday, and likely because of it being chilly and gray nearly the entire day.  Yes, we had a few cloud-breaks, but they were not long-lived.  I'm wishing the forecasts are going to be correct when telling us it'll be in the 60's toward the end of the week.I'm afraid it's going to be a race getting a home closed nex … continue reading

For a Monday, it wasn't as busy as I'd expected, but with it being Columbus Day, I guess there were all the many who took off for a three day weekend. Since all the Federal offices and most of the banks were closed, there really wasn't much else open other than those businesses that take advantage of every long hour they're open.I had a call fr … continue reading

I arrived at the office earlier in order to call one of my clients about a phone message I received late last night. The phone call came from a caller with an "out West" area code, and the message was a request to see that particular clients home very soon because the caller's husband would be leaving the area sometime today. Since it was far too l … continue reading

Welcome to pre-winter! This has been quite the change from last week, and I don't even want to think what type of real winter we're going to have in store for us if this is a precursor to our months ahead.My morning was a smattering of duties including more office accounting, several visits to stores including a paint store, and all the while, … continue reading

Goodness gracious, it was quite a change in weather today to where it was so cold, I was seeing people walking around with down-filled coats on, and for sure, those icy gusts of wind we were getting, was enough to send us all running to grab our windbreakers.Thank goodness I didn't have a morning filled with appointments because I had to get ba … continue reading

112 N. Crescent Drive
After my early morning appointment left, I busied myself with a file that's going to be closing in several weeks, which created a necessity for me to drive to Hampton, and wouldn't you know it, I drove all the way down, and then back up in rain. I was expecting light rain today, but not the amount we ended up getting. On a positive note, it couldn' … continue reading

As much wishful thinking there was in regards to our days remaining sunny, the cloud cover had to arrive again, and it looks like it'll be sticking around for a while.The early hours of my morning were spent with appointments that were scheduled, and since both of them took longer than expected, there wasn't much of a break before I had to go b … continue reading

It was another beautiful day in North Iowa, and I hope everyone was enjoying the outdoors to their fullest, because I heard we're going to be getting a cold snap towards the end of the week and possibly into the weekend. I'll be shocked if we should have that chance of snow they're talking about, actually arriving. Yikes! It's too early for that na … continue reading

We managed to sneak another good day out of October and I hope they continue to appear. There were several others who felt the same way I did with those seemingly never-ending days of rain, and wouldn't you know it, the weekends were the days they felt worse.Since I wasn't able to get my little project finished up yesterday morning, I went to t … continue reading

Go Out and Patronize
Oh how wonderful it was to see the sun shining today! I was beginning to think Mother Nature placed some sort of rain curse on us for something we did or didn't do. I couldn't believe how high the Winnebago River was when driving over Carolina Bridge this morning. I'm keeping my fingers crossed in hopes we're not going to get the predicted rain thi … continue reading
