Sitting On Cursed Soil

Sitting On Cursed Soil
With our temps up in the sixties, we were offered another pleasant day, and it would've been even better if the wind wasn't blowing so hard from the south. At least the last remaining piles of snow around our City are slowing melting away. Good riddance.Since I'd accumulated a large amount of refuse over the weekend, I decided to get it loaded … continue reading

One Look At That Raging Fire

One Look At That Raging Fire
It was a bit chilly and very foggy outside when I left for office this morning, which was a more than un-nerving while driving because darkness and fog can be deadly if both eyes aren't glued on the road ahead. I made it just fine, but while driving past the hospital, I noticed some crazy person driving without their headlights on. Sometimes I thin … continue reading

Beyond A Sickness That’s Curable

Beyond A Sickness That’s Curable
Now if the wind wasn't out of the north, it would've been an absolutely delightful day, but of course while I was working outdoors, I had to wear a warm hat and stay slightly bundled.With all of our snow melted, I figured it to be the best time to start picking up sticks and fallen branches which were the by-product of our exceptionally windy w … continue reading

Only If It’s Read Backwards

Only If It’s Read Backwards
Another overcast and wind-chilly day came and went, but hopefully our weekend temps will be back up in the 60's with no wind. I think that northwest wind has been blowing for so long now, I swear I can smell a Siberian or two in the air.My morning closing went as smoothly as ever to be expected, and just before the listing agent left, my buyer … continue reading

Hacking For Good

Hacking For Good
Another great swing in temps took place again when considering it was over 70 degrees outside yesterday, and then today gray skies, a cold northerly wind, and a dampness that quickly reached to the bone. Oh well, what does one expect when knowing it's only the 17th of March?The final walk-thru I had in Nora Springs today went very well, and whi … continue reading

Lasting Trails Of Tears

Lasting Trails Of Tears
I was in shock when seeing the outside temperature in our Downtown being 70 degrees around three o'clock this afternoon. I'd say that was another big swing in degrees considering how much cooler it was yesterday. You can bet I was enjoying every moment I was outdoors today.There'll be a final walk-thru tomorrow on a sale of mine that's closing … continue reading

Bow To Their Courageous Acts

Bow To Their Courageous Acts
The fog was pretty thick this morning which hung around until around ten, and in spite of it being above freezing, the dampness from the fog cover caused it to feel all the colder than it actually was. Every time I find myself walking in fog, I'm reminded of the times I was visiting on the West Coast and out walking the beaches at the break of dawn … continue reading

Put The Spotlight On Them

Put The Spotlight On Them
I would say this was likely the most pleasant day we've had so far this March, and likely because the wind wasn't blowing. I can't wait until Sunday arrives where we'll be basking in 60+ degree temperatures. It's time to get your porches, decks and patios cleaned off because summertime temps are on their way.When looking at my calendar at offic … continue reading

Those Glowing Eyes of Some Off-World Demon

Those Glowing Eyes of Some Off-World Demon
I thought it a bit odd having awakened an hour earlier than I normally do, but with the springing-forward of Daylight Savings Time, I was right on schedule. It normally takes me weeks to get adjusted to the time change, but perhaps this will be the year my internal clock jumped right in line with our new time.Since I didn't have to play at St. … continue reading

Everyone’s Afraid of Putin’s Musketeers

Everyone’s Afraid of Putin’s Musketeers
As much as I was expecting a complete about-face with this weather today, it didn't happen because that wind was still coming from the north, so much of my morning was spent enduring another chill. At least our warming trend will be starting tomorrow which will also be the first day of Daylight Savings Time, so be sure to set your clocks one hour f … continue reading
