As much as I was wishing it would continue raining until this storm passed, my hopes were dashed when looking outside this afternoon and seeing those big wet snowflakes falling, and if it keeps at it much longer, there'll be some darned heavy snow to get moved come tomorrow morning.I had only two appointments outside my office today, which affo … continue reading

In spite of being a bright and sun-shining day, it was still just a bit too cold out for my taste. Around 1:00 pm, the sun warmed us up enough to where the snow started melting off the sidewalks and over-hangs of our Downtown buildings and creating puddles, so just to be on the safe side, I swept as much of it away from the front of my building bec … continue reading

It was a welcoming Monday when finding it not so terribly cold as I was driving all the earlier to the office this morning due to some little errands needing to be run before my opening hour arrived.One of my clients called and asked that I post one of his rentals for lease since it's now vacant, cleaned up, and ready to show.

I hope everyone celebrating last night made it safely home without any unfortunate turn of events, and above all, after waking this morning, there were no lingering guilts suddenly coming to mind from something that was said or done to another.There've been a number of times I've been around people who've consumed too much giggle water and then … continue reading

A Merry 2019 Christmas

A Merry 2019 Christmas
As I was heading eastward early this morning on the Avenue of the Saints, I was cursing myself for not having taken my camera with me while driving in the direction of an absolutely stunning sunrise. It actually reminded me of something one of the old masters would've painted as a backdrop of something out of the Renaissance Age. I dare say it was … continue reading

Another beautiful day happened here in North Iowa, and you can bet I was out enjoying it as much as possible. In spite of it being the shortest day of the year, it felt like a delightful Fall day instead of being the official beginning of our Winter.I had a very good repeat showing of 415 - 1st St. SE this morning, and this time the buyers brou … continue reading

I have a feeling we're going to get some precipitation in the night due to how exceptionally damp it grew before sunset. I stepped outdoors for only a minute or two and wouldn't you know it, the chill had already begun reaching into my bones.While visiting with a gentleman this morning, I mentioned how we all get un-accustomed to doing things w … continue reading

When finding the temps in the single digit realm this morning, there was no wasting of time being outdoors for any length. I had a little extra shoveling to do because of last night's wind, and you can be sure I wasted no effort getting it moved.Several years ago, I purchased ear muffs that've been a Godsend whenever having to be out in such we … continue reading

In spite of getting to my office about an hour earlier his morning, it seemed as though I was chasing a tail-wind in attempts to keep up with all the calls, and "immediate" needs of others.  I was beginning to think it was a full moon by the way in which the temperaments of people were spiking, and thank goodness I wasn't pulled into such states o … continue reading

When I left for work this morning, I was shocked to find how it had suddenly turned warm again, and with the those temperatures, the chiggers were back out in force. Oh how I despise those nasty creatures. By the time mid-afternoon arrived, it was registering 94 degrees in the Downtown. It was sort of creepy cool when seeing the sun at a much lower … continue reading
