Foster Derision
Another scorcher came and went, and it looks like we're going to have repeat days the entire week. Since we haven't had any rain coupled with these high temps, people are going to be out watering their flowerbeds and gardens, just to keep them from being stressed. If these climate changes continue, I won't be surprised if more gardeners are going t … continue reading

My Double-Header

My Double-Header
Another beautiful June day arrived in all its glory with the sun shining, flowers blooming, and birds singing. When I stopped to check on a vacant home very early this morning, there was a cardinal cheerfully chirping away in a nearby bush. Every time I see one of them, I'm reminded of how fortunate we are to have such wildlife and natural beauties … continue reading

Revisiting 721 N. Delaware
I'm hoping you all had a delightful Sunday, and likely even more so if you were spending much of your day outdoors. I think we're going to be needing some rain soon because it's starting to get pretty dry, and now that the farmers most likely have all their corn planted, some long hours of light rain would do wonders for its germination. Oh by the … continue reading

A Quiet Easter

A Quiet Easter
Just about every way I looked at it, this was a quiet Easter Sunday that'll be sent to my long-term memory, and certainly referred back to in the future. There were no church Service to attend, no Easter gathering to enjoy, along with this afternoon's weather not being fit for man nor beast. I was expecting either rain or snow, but not sleet, and j … continue reading

Mini-Metro Areas
Considering how nasty the weather was when driving out of town and back from the five homes I had to show in another community, I was just glad to have made it back without having encountered any road hazards. I sure would've liked to have taken a willow switch to some of those drivers today who must've thought they were driving down roads that wer … continue reading

It was good to find the sun out this morning, but unfortunately the clouds started moving in around mid-day. It looks like we're to have rain again tonight, but I think we're still ahead of the game with our warmer temps. Unless we have some major rain or heavy snow, I'd say our area needn't worrying about Spring flooding this year.As soon as I … continue reading

Reeling Forward

Reeling Forward
Someday soon, this snow is all going to melt away, and in its place, there'll be fresh green grass and smiling blossoms, but until then, we must trod along and remain diligent with keeping ourselves warm and healthy so we'll be all the more readied for another go at enjoying every waking hour of North Iowa's more pleasant of seasons.Today's sho … continue reading

The Hypersane

The Hypersane
I was pleasantly shocked when seeing it nearly 50 degrees in the Downtown this afternoon. Once again, I found myself performing little outdoor chores just so to absorb all the more essence of this beautiful day. I even took time to drive in one big circle of our City after my noon appointment, but a little shocked when noticing so few people out en … continue reading

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

Plymouth has Fiber Optic
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
