Guess What?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Evolution - Topsfield, MA 92593-B

It SNOWED last night! Just a couple of inches. Since yesterday was freezing rain and the roads were treacherous (Our town's sander truck even slid off the road) we asked our expected guests if they could come today. Pam & I had a very relaxing day and, believe it or not...in the 48 years we've known each other this is the FIRST Christmas it's been just the two of us.

Here we are marching right along to the New Year 2022. It's eye-opening to realize that just 22 years ago it was Y2K and everyone was freaking out about computers crashing AND the excitement around entering a new century (funny how we associate with milestones).

Speaking of that, (milestones), in Massachusetts all the Exit numbers have changed which has many folks messed up as well as GPS's that haven't been updated. Now the exit numbers relate to the mile markers along the highway. Is it the same in your state?

So, the "Guess What?" answer IS.... 365 Days until Christmas

HI Doug- our temps were in the high 70s but we had to make some changes because of some illnesses. 365 days until Christmas 2022...I'd better get a move on it. And Nina Hollander, Broker you are amazing...2022 cards already stamped!!!

We are getting our snow right now Doug Dawes . North Dakota switched out exit signs a couple of decades ago and it did confuse people for a while but in the end it's a good thing.

It was a riot faye schubert. We tested all the telephone computers and identified those that needed a fix which was accomplished and tested prior to the new year. Happy New Year

We live in a small town of 8540 people in the Northeastern corner of MA just south of the NH seacoast border Ed Silva . The big sander was the one I was speaking of. The others are contractors that have fitted sanders on their pickup trucks

Change can be viewed as a nefarious adversary. I never really know the previous exit numbers...lol Michael Jacobs

I hope the west coast receives more rain and lots of snowpack in the mountains to get you all about the drought you've been experiencing Ron and Alexandra Seigel

As I get older, Will Hamm, my tolerance for snow grows less and less. Like you, we got about an inch the day after Christmas

I'm looking forward to 2022 and what it has to bring. I'm praying this virus will vanish and people can get back to some sort of normalcy w/o the media and government always harping at us

Bob "RealMan" Timm  A couple of decades ago? Wow! 

I heard there has been snow dropping in the northwestern part of the country

I grew up in a boarder town (Moorhead MN & Fargo ND) and I think MN had that system right off the bat but ND took a little while to follow suit).

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. 

I had never thought of that and it was just something that hit me as we called family and asked them to come by on Sunday
