No April 1st

No April 1st
We certainly had another good bone-chilling today, along with a few snow flurries which came as a surprise, but at least we're soon to be out of North Iowa's most unpredictable month of March. People have been mentioning that come Monday, it's supposed to be in the upper 70's which sounds almost un-heard of, and if such temps do arrive, let's hope … continue reading

Five Pieces of Junk

Five Pieces of Junk
Wasn't it the craziest with our wind having changed directions overnight? So if we don't having it blowing our brains out from the south, it turns right around and pounds us from the north. I still remember that mid-century print of Mason City where the creating artist had it named, "Mason City, the Windy City of the North.", which was most appropr … continue reading

Filterless Fashion

Filterless Fashion
I hope these strong winds are not going to be the mode of our days and months ahead, and if they should be, we're going to have some major tree and structural damage done before it's all over. Every time I went to open a storm door today, I had to hold on tightly or would've been ripped out of my hand. They used to say March winds would bring April … continue reading

The Cutest Home

The Cutest Home
Oh, if only that north wind wasn't blowing so hard today, as if it weren't, it would've been a much warmer sun-filled one. I've noticed tulips coming up on the southern exposures of several homes, which is always the best place for them in our windy North.On my way to office this morning, I stopped at Hy-Vee to pick up a few things I was needin … continue reading

Wondering if Idiocy

Wondering if Idiocy
For a Saturday, the weather couldn't have been more miserable with our wind and intermittent rain. Since it was chilly out this morning, I dressed in warmer wools, and of course when wool gets wet, you can smell it, and today's rain gave me a good dose of it. Wouldn't it be great if we only had rain in the night?My first appointment was to go o … continue reading

Two Should be Better

Two Should be Better
Without a doubt, it was quite the busy day to where I nearly caught myself coming and going more than once. It looks like we're heading into another frantic buying spree this year, as in past years, Fridays were normally our slower days to where we could get a few of our personal errands run, along with having time to plan our weekend schedules. No … continue reading

Makes or Breaks

Makes or Breaks
Another cool and damp day happened again, and in spite of the sun trying to break thru ever-so often, it didn't seem able to get past our high cloud cover, but now that we're on the down-hill slide of March, our days will continue to get longer and warmer. Yeah!My early morning appointments were taken up with getting another home sold which mad … continue reading

Daunting Daily Task

Daunting Daily Task
By the time our afternoon arrived, it was turning quite chilly outdoors to where I was beginning to wonder if it was going to start spitting snow. So much for it being the first days of Spring when finding I had to wear my winter coat whenever outdoors.Most of my early morning was getting caught up on additional market research, along with plac … continue reading

Truly are Evil

Truly are Evil
It looks like the rain will be with us for another day which is just fine by me, as I can already see some of our City's lawns starting to green up, and especially those that were well-raked before winter arrived. Of course the few times I was out in it today, it had to be raining all the harder. Oh how I dis-like the smell of wet wool.My frust … continue reading

Onto Something

Onto Something
I was exceptionally thankful it didn't start raining around noontime today as was predicted, which allowed me to get some decent photos taken of my new listing over at 422 S. Tennessee Place. If there'd be anyone looking for a main floor condominium unit in an affordable price, that's the one. It's been exceptionally well maintained, along with hav … continue reading
