century21: Spanish Trails Village, Zephyrhills, FL has 2019 Xmas Golfcart Parade - 12/22/19 01:29 PM

Yesterday evening Spanish Trails Village in Zephyrhills, Florida held its annual golf cart parade. Many of the residents decorated their carts with flashing lights, tinsel, ornaments and even music to help usher in the holiday season. My mom and her little dog Daisy in her festive red coat rode along on a tour of all the streets. The people who did not have carts sat out to watch the parade go by. And those of us in the carts got to drive by all of the homes, many of which were elaborately decorated with lights.
After the parade, everyone retired to … (0 comments)

century21: Last Post on Hurricane Dorian - Florida Bids the Storm "Good-Bye" - 09/04/19 09:32 AM





This will be my last post concerning Hurricane Dorian. As of 11 AM today, Wednesday, 9/4/2019, Hurricane Dorian is continuing its northern trek and is no longer a threat to most of Florida. It will pass by our northern border soon. The experts now say that it will likely stay just off shore in the Atlantic as it moves more northeasterly in the days to come. From what I hear on the Weather Channel, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina are preparing their coastal areas for high tides and possible flooding. With North Carolina being the most probably landfall site.

century21: Projected Path of Dorian Still East of Florida with no Landfall Here - 09/01/19 10:00 AM



As of 8 AM today, 9/1/2019, Hurricane Dorian's projected path continues to be off the east coast of Florida by quite a few miles. The experts now say that it will likely stay out to sea in the Atlantic as it moves more north and northeasterly on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of this week. Dozens of different projections say this. If you look at the "cone" you will notice that most of western Florida, including Zephyrhills, Pasco County and Tampa are no longer included. That should give us a modicum of relief. Those things could change, the experts say it is … (2 comments)

century21: Tropical Storm Dorian enters the Caribbean August 27, 2019 - 08/27/19 03:28 PM

As of today, 8/27/2019, Tropical Storm Dorian has passed Antigua and Barbados and continues on a projected northwest path. We are still several days away from any Florida landfall, if it makes it as far as here. But if you look at its trajectory, you will note that the National Hurricane Center is predicting that it will remain a tropical storm for now. However, as in the past, these storms can be unpredictable and can strengthen quickly. It does appear to go over Puerto Rico and they certainly don't need more problems from the weather. I hope they are luckier this time … (1 comments)

century21: 2019 Truth in Millage Notices Arriving at Homeowners Properties Now - 08/20/19 04:47 PM

When I opened my mailbox today (8/19/2019), I found a letter from Gary Joiner, the Pasco County Property Appraiser of the county where I live, telling me what my proposed property taxes for 2019 would likely be. Probably most of Florida's residents are also receiving these notices, also called Truth in Millage (TRIM). notices. It is worth your while to closely examine the one that pertains to the property(s) that you own.
The notice will show you 3 main things:
What your property taxes were last year. What they will be this year if proposed budget changes are not made. What they will be if … (0 comments)

century21: Hurricane Matthew gets Closer to the Eastern Coast of Florida! - 10/05/16 09:42 AM

As of today, 10/5/2016, Hurricane Matthew, a Category 4 storm, is now north of Cuba and heading for the Bahamas. I was there many years ago, and most of the islands there are just a few feet above sea level. So storm surges are going to be a problem for them. As they will be for the eastern coast of Florida. As you can see in the above image, its projected path has it moving in a northwesterly direction, with its center grazing the eastern coast of Florida around Thursday and Friday of this week. The most western part of the cone … (0 comments)

century21: Bid a Fond Farewell to the 2015 Hurricane Season in Florida - 11/30/15 07:30 AM
Today, November 30th, is the official "last day" of the 2015 Hurricane Season. Though it sometimes happens, it is very unlikely that a storm will form now. The waters of the Atlantic Ocean are just too cool. And warm water is what powers these massive storms.We did not even get a decent tropical storm this year that affected our area. Earlier in the summer we did have an abundance of rain, but not from any hurricanes or other major storms. 
Often people call me looking to buy a home and they want it near the gulf beaches. I work in an area … (1 comments)
