What Stalin and Hitler Created

What Stalin and Hitler Created
I'm sure there weren't many out in today's weather with the cold drizzle that started early-on. At least we didn't get hit with what the Eastern Seaboard is now enduring. Yes, our weather patterns are getting quite erratic these recent years. The only productive thing I managed to get done today, was write an offer on a vacant lot. I thought i … continue reading

The Prayer Rock

The Prayer Rock
We finally had a sunny day arrive, and as it wore on, the northwest wind finally subsided enough to where it was actually calm by the end of the day. While on the phone with an associate today, I couldn't help mentioning how much colder and windier this past March was, and later having it confirmed when opening my office's gas and electric bill. Af … continue reading

Start Carrying Off The Many Thugs

Start Carrying Off The Many Thugs
In spite of it being April Fool's Day, the weather finally straightened out enough to where I didn't have to wear my winter coat once the afternoon arrived. It sounds like it's going to be in the 50's tomorrow afternoon, which should allow for a decent day outdoors as long as the wind isn't blowing. Sunday's forecast is calling for rain, so whateve … continue reading

Price Reduction On 1125 W. State Street

Price Reduction On 1125 W. State Street
Our outside temps created another day of wearing my winter coat, so perhaps this'll be a personal record for me with having to wear it longer than normal. Considering we're only a few days away from April 1st, I'd say we've had an exceptionally cold and windy March. Pretty much my entire day was spent working with files which were supposed to cl … continue reading

An Address of 1401 N. Washington

An Address of 1401 N. Washington
This lingering dampness and cold is starting to grow annoying, and when checking on this weekend's weather, it looks like we'll be lucky if we even get close to forty degrees both Saturday and Sunday. The longer this hangs on, the more likely we're not going to have the easing into summer, but rather the sudden happening. When I arrived at offic … continue reading

He Has Asperger Syndrome
I'm sure many of you were staying close to home considering how cold, damp and dreary it was outside today. When I glanced outdoors this afternoon, for a brief period there were snowflakes falling. Thank goodness it was short-lived because I'm definitely not in the mood to be shoveling snow again. I spent part of my morning preparing a closing s … continue reading

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

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

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

Close Alignment with Temporal Affairs

Close Alignment with Temporal Affairs
Another chilly day in March arrived with the gusts of wind strong enough to cause me to a few steps backward while walking. Fortunately I wasn't out in it anymore than I had to be, and glad for it because I'm really getting the feeling of wanting to be over with these cold days. Whenever someone says we have six months of winter in North Iowa, you' … continue reading
