Waiting Their Turn

Waiting Their Turn
Thank goodness the arctic vortex has finally ended and we're all in hopes to never see such horribly cold temperatures in our area ever again.  I was terribly saddened when hearing about all the deaths that occurred due to that cold.  My nerves were on edge the entire time because of my fears something terrible would happen with clients, customer … continue reading

Last night's wind and cold was quite the experience.  Most of us can certainly attest that once the temps start dropping down to such wicked degrees, our homes start making those creepy noises at night to where you think the cold has awakened them.  Thank goodness the wind went down before the sun came which meant we didn't have to deal with anot … continue reading

With our cloud cover this morning, I certainly wasn't expecting it to be -1 degrees when I got up this morning.  Indeed it's cold and I'm feeling it all the more as these days continue.  It seemed no matter where I was, I could feel the cold radiating from exterior walls which during these times, that same old question I've asked myself comes bac … continue reading

To the Far Corners

To the Far Corners
Having a few early morning errands to run before heading to the office, I was on the road about an hour earlier than normally, and for sure, it was pretty creepy while driving on vacant roads with a fog looking too much like a graveyard haze.   I was surprised to see it well into the 30's by mid-afternoon, and likely due to the sun finally decidi … continue reading

Heed its Warning

The temps seem to be tolerable today, but oh how the cold humidity seemed to saturate every fiber. I was hoping to see the sun shine but unfortunately that wasn't part of Mother Nature's plan.Most of my morning was spent working on up-coming closings which will hopefully take place before our year's end.  There'll certainly be some happy campe … continue reading

Oh how wonderful it was to have the sun out all day today!  It actually warmed up enough to melt some of the snow off the sidewalks and streets.  Of course with the cloud cover lifted, we'll be having some colder nights along with early mornings and late afternoons.  I'm in full agreement of global warming, but it sure hasn't been felt these pas … continue reading

To Such Limits

To Such Limits
Most of my morning was spent performing my normal first of the month accounting tasks as well as paying the monthly bills that seem to magically appear every 30 days at my office.  When writing out checks, I once in a while think of the times several in the general public have made a few unkind remarks about how Realtors makes such big bucks with … continue reading

If we have to endure weather like we've been having for all the many winter days ahead, I'd say there'll be crowds of our residents ready to pack up, move, and never come back.  I'll wager I was the coldest thus far while showing a vacant home today that had no heat or lights.  For some reason, those ice boxes always seem colder on the inside tha … continue reading

Between Holidays
So much for the sunny day I was expecting.  It was almost like we were trapped somewhere in the Nor-East near a body of water considering how damp the air was.  Oh well, at least it was above freezing which is always a good thing.Having a few hours to kill this morning, I figured I'd go change my clothes and work at a project. While there, I … continue reading

For me, it was a bit unusual Sunday morning due to an early appointment I had to show a home to some buyers I've been working with.  Many apologies were made for such an early time--especially it being Sunday.  I'm always quick to remind buyers that an active Realtor will always try to work around their work schedules.  Little did those buyers k … continue reading
