Bent Reflections
My first and foremost job this morning was to take a drive up to Northwood to get a document recorded at their County Courthouse.  I've been working diligently at making sure there's nothing standing in the way of a particular loan transaction which as far as I'm concerned, has been taking far longer than normal.  With the advent of internet bank … continue reading

Fall Hatchlings

Fall Hatchlings
Let's hope this rain doesn't continue on into the weekend because like many of the rest of us, I have things I need to get done outdoors.  At least I wasn't as chilled today as yesterday, which is giving me hope I'm finally getting adjusted to this cold.  I couldn't believe seeing several boys climbing onto a school bus with shorts on this mornin … continue reading

It seems everyone was complaining today about how cold it was outdoors.  Even though the temps were up in the 50's, the dampness made it feel much colder.  The way the sky appeared in the west, made me think of snow clouds.  I have to admit, the remainder of the afternoon was so gray, our landscape appeared almost surrealistic.  For the many re … continue reading

A Game of Pool?

A Game of Pool?
It actually got above 60 degrees today and the sun was even shining!  Thank goodness for small miracles, and while I was out on appointments, I noticed a great number of people working in their yards.  It's no wonder they were due to the endless days of rain that just wouldn't stop.  I'm hoping and praying these warmer days and wind will help dr … continue reading

Alas the sun was shining for about four hours today which was better than nothing considering our many days without.  The leaves have certainly been falling all the more since yesterday morning's frost which means we've got some raking to do.Having seen at least ten deer within our city limits today, I'm staying exceptionally hopeful there'll … continue reading

Adieu to Summer

Adieu to Summer
Most of my morning was spent working on getting an acreage sold that was just listed by another office two days ago.   I didn't waste any time getting my buyers in to see it yesterday, and then telling them to have a good talk and sleep over it last night.  Not to many minutes after 9:00  this morning they called to say they wanted to come to m … continue reading

1042 – 1st St. NE
That was quite the turn-about with the weather last night.  We couldn't have had a better example of radical temperature changes.  I just now remembered something I read a number of years ago regarding weather statistics.  At the time, Mason City ranked in the top ten in the Nation per capita as being a city with the greatest temperature differe … continue reading

Well, I'm happy to announce that I made it thru the day without any last minute fires to put out on the multiple, and nearly back-to-back closings I had this morning.  It wouldn't have been so bad if they were all at the same bank or closing companies, but unfortunately, they were across town.At one of the closings, I was in near shock when th … continue reading

As expected, it was a hectic Monday with phone calls, appointments, and a handful of other little to do's.  What caused me extra time and frustration, was when I went to check on one of my vacant listings, and finding the electronic lockbox on the property somehow decided to give me an error code when trying to open it with my code.  Making matte … continue reading

It came as no surprise to see the streets flooding early this morning after being awakened several times in the night by the rain.  To think it's the 20th of September and we're getting this amount of rain, especially knowing this is supposed to be the time when things start drying out.  I drove past the entrance to East Park and wasn't surprised … continue reading
