Weather regarding the storms I am very used to. We had huge "thunder boomers" which rolled out many evenings near the ocean. I absolutely love watching the dark clouds rolling in with the powerful winds and you can smell the rain coming...... ah, heaven.
The only thing I can not get used to is ..... it's freaking cold out there!!!!! Everyone looks at me like I have gone completely mad. Not sure if I will ever make the adjustment, but give me 90 degree weather all year round and I'd be a happy camper, lol
Yes, this town is very beautiful, and so are the people.
Looks like the bid was accepted on a home I was looking at, 5 bedroom , 3 bath, 3 car two story garage, living room, kitchen, dining room, office, mud room, basement (but one of those "Michigan" basements so they call them .... maybe 6' clearance? .. so only really good for elevated storage) and game room with wet bar. Balcony off the game room (on second floor) screened deck, open deck w/jacuzzi and tons of room for a pool & garden.
The house needs work.... but then again, could not have afforded something that size ready to roll anyway. Met a lot of the neighbors, they kept coming out and talking my ear off and pleading "PLEASE buy the house!" ... it's an upscale neighborhood and all the neighbors across from me have boats on their docks. So I told them I am going to have a a house warming party and putting a paint brush in every one's hand, lol .... they seemed cool with that
The first occupants husband died of cancer and she moved next door into a smaller home. She sold it to a gentleman who leased it out to a ton of adults who where apparently drug dealers and the police where constantly up there and also watching the house. Those people tore the living daylights out of the interior, so broken glass, holes in the dry wall and had an animal in there, who apparently was not house trained. So first things first, rip up the flooring! I need to run air purifiers and through baking soda down several times before replacing the flooring with something other than carpet (not a fan of carpet). Drywall, I can do, Windows I will have to pay someone to come in for ..... then I can actually move in and do the rest as I go along. I am actually handier than most people realize, lol .... I'll take pictures as I go of the transformation.
