Good Morning! It has been a while since I blogged. I guess the combination of bitter cold and very dark mornings plus being very busy with real estate could be my excuses. They are the same excuses I choose to use about not walking daily right now. Since this area is doomed to have morning temperatures ranging from 8 degrees to 20 degrees, I suppose I will just have to suck it up and go anyway. Say hello to my last day of waiting for warmer weather to walk. Pretty funny if I end up with the flu or something.
We have a closing today, yippee. A young man buying his very first house and we are excited for him. There is another closing in 10 days and everything seems on track with that one. We just got the appraisal back and the opinion was that the house is worth more than we negotiated for the buyer. Good work team. On the same day, in theory, there will be a second closing…let’s not talk about it, wouldn’t want to jinx the deal. A fourth closing is scheduled for early in March. In the meantime we are busy with other buyers and listers.
We got a delivery of propane yesterday so we can relax a little about heat. Out of the next closing we will order some oil. The oil furnace does a fantastic job of taking the chill out of the house immediately. It has been between 49 and 56 degrees in the house in the morning. We use small space heaters to warm bedrooms and pets, so the entire house isn’t that cold…just the kitchen and living room. Still a might brrrr though.
Our snow is slowly melting, but there is still a tremendous amount out there. In some areas on the property it has turned into an 8-12″ sheet of ice. We have a few days forecast to have temperatures above freezing, let’s hope we can get major meltage before the next wintry blast of mix occurs.
Have a really great day.
