This morning I woke up to about 5” of fresh snow blanketing the world.  As beautiful as the snow was, it was covering the driveway and deck and porch and walks. And it had to be removed, so out I went to take care of it.  I shoveled the easy stuff first, the sidewalk, the front porch, the back de...
I posted the following on my facebook wall this morning, and I thought it was a good topic for a blog: "Shake yourself up a little!

Yesterday, it was 25 degrees Fahrenheit at 1pm.  I was bundled up in silk long johns, silk socks, wool socks, warm sweat pants, a ski shirt, a sweatshirt, a down jacket, sheepskin gloves, a hat, and thermal hiking boots.  I am ALWAYS cold, even sitting in the house, so I was hoping this would be ...
HAPPY NEW YEAR!  2013 is upon us!  What a great time to look back at 2012 to see where the real estate market has been going in the Monroe NY area.
