A Good Scare

A Good Scare
With it being a slower morning which was likely due to the overcast skies and biting cold wind coming out of the north, I managed to get caught up on some bill paying and accounting. It's amazing how just ten for fifteen degrees can change one's attitude towards being outdoors.One of my mid-morning appointments was to meet an out-of-town Realto … continue reading

I wasn't the least bit happy when finding it had started raining in the night, and still drizzling as I headed to the office before attending a church Service. I made a quick call to one of my dear friends just to torment him for a moment or two before heading back out again.It had been at least a month since I darkened that church's doors, and … continue reading

The First Snow

The First Snow
You can believe I was exceptionally disgusted when seeing we had snow on the ground early this morning. Ugh! This is something we normally start finding the week around Thanksgiving, and most times that's even early. Oh well, like someone said yesterday, "We didn't have a Spring this year, and now no Fall." Perhaps climate change will convert our f … continue reading

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

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

I'm sure we're all glad it didn't get even close to freezing last night, and it looks like the next days ahead are going to be pleasant ones. I'm hoping tomorrow's public open house at 413 - 19th St. SE goes well, and it looks like one of my competing offices has pulled out all the stops on open houses this weekend. I think each and every one of th … continue reading

Benefiting Only A Handful

Benefiting Only A Handful
This was quite the un-inspiring day with all the random cloud bursts that seemed to wait until I had somewhere to go or something to do outdoors. I don't even want to think about the possibilities of flash flooding if this keeps up these next days. I must say these broad swings of temperatures have been something to write home about. Oh well, there … continue reading

It was an absolutely beautiful morning with the sun shining and pleasant temps, but as the hours passed and the afternoon arrived, I found it getting a bit too warm for my liking. It sounds like we've got another storm coming our way tonight, and let's hope it's not going to be one of those with high winds.The hours seemed to fly by with all th … continue reading

That was some kind of hell-raising storm we had early this morning.  It was one more reminder of how living in the "flatlands" gives our wind the ability to blow rain in a horizontal direction instead of straight down.  If anyone had a window open last night that was facing westerly, you can be sure they had a big puddle of water on their floors. … continue reading

403 N. Monroe Ave.
Once again I found today that the best laid plans of mice and men do so often go awry after discovering that my 8:00 am appointment was postponed for another day.  Cancellations in and of themselves don't really bother me, yet often times it's a sudden change which causes that particular day's routine to be out of balance, and normally ends up las … continue reading
