Into a War Zone

Into a War Zone
That was quite the rainstorm we had today, and when looking to the west on my way to work, it appeared those ominously dark clouds were on their way here to give us a good pounding, and a pounding we got.  They've predicted rain for tomorrow and Friday, and if it's going to be has heavy as today's, I'd say there'll be more mowing in the days ahead … continue reading

They predicted temps in the 80's this week, and it looks like this time they got it right because we've not only been getting the high temps, but also exceptionally heavy humidity which made being outdoors rather annoying.  I certainly didn't dress for it today, but for sure I'll be wearing something much lighter tomorrow.The first thing on my … continue reading

Having awakened early enough this morning, I managed to get a few things done before attending an early church service here in the City.  Thinking I was late, I discovered the minister  being the one who was tardy.I'm not a regular of that church, and being as such, I happened to notice all the more quirky things some of the attendants were d … continue reading

If there were ever a dead-ringer for a classic Friday the 13th, I'd say today will go down in history as one of them, because beginning at the first hour, I was a spectator of a number of unfortunate events.The first happening, was seeing what the back end of a concrete truck can do to the hood of a Ford F150.  The young owner of that sparklin … continue reading

Today's heavy rains came rather unexpectedly along with the amount received.  I guess we should consider ourselves lucky after hearing how much the Twin Cities received as well as today's news that Austin got majorly dumped on.  It's been a number of years since I've seen such downpours in the month of September.  I'll believe it when I see it i … continue reading

In Case of Emergency

In Case of Emergency
While in conversation today with an elderly client, she veered off the subject and mentioned how much she hates dark gray days like this because they pull her down if she doesn't keep busy, which is why she spent most of today working in her yard, flower garden, and chores around the house.  She went on to say she didn't even what to think about w … continue reading

Oh how I wish the remaining days of this year were like the one that just occurred.  There's no doubt the hurricane out East had an effect on our weather patterns here in North Iowa.  It was unfortunate I wasn't able to be out in it as much as I would've liked, but that's what happens when office work calls.  At least I did manage to get all of … continue reading

I'd say this week went flying by with there being only four real work days for most, and when looking back at it, I'd say there were five days squeezed into four, and yes, we've been blessed with very pleasant days in spite of not having enough moisture in the soil for this time of year.Isn't it crazy when remembering how much snow we had last … continue reading

It was quite the glorious day outdoors with the blue sky and bright sun, and when stopping for but a moment and having a good look at it all, I was reminded how beautiful North Iowa can be when the weather is near perfect.I had no showings scheduled, but I did go out and visit with two different sellers who're moving towards getting their homes … continue reading

Yours truly got a good workout today with a project that's had nearly all my free hours consumed for the past two weeks, but at least I managed to get it finished up on time and everyone's happy including me.As chance would have it, my most recent listing got sold today, and it came as no surprise considering the number of showings we've had sc … continue reading
