Tropical Storms or just storms
(Posting early due to the storm)
(Colin came and I had just had my hair done)
We went down to Port Richey today to help Son Mark, who has a broken wing and can work with only one hand. Grandson Luke is also down. Tropical Storm Colin came by I think. We went to Jersey Mikes because it was close to Lowes and I saw some of the weather on the tube. I noticed they had clocked some gusts above 50mph.
WE did some electrical work, made a couple window screens (one worked one didn't (not a good average)). Sherry painted (yep even in the humidity), and did some clean up.
When we got to the house there was a man looking at it. He told Sherry he was interested in the house and was sorry Mark already had a contract, because he had the cash and was ready to buy.
I have sold many houses and I do not give credence to all the stories I hear. In the example above, the man may have had the price in cash (his idea of the price, which may have been 1/2 what Mark is asking.
I am always reminded of the guy looking for a tire for his car and finally found one that fit for $35. He told the dealer, "I was just down at Tommy's Tires and he gets $22 for the tire!"
"Well sir, why didn't you buy it there?"
"He didn't have any in stock!"
Looking very serious the dealer said, "Mister I do better than that, when I don't have 'em in stock, I sell them for $15."
AS I type this entry the remnants (or continuation) of Colin is passing thru Wildwood. This is some of the hardest rain this motor home has ever been in and the winds are high. We have found one leak. It will have to be treated after the storms have passed. Funny thing, we have one awning still out. In the winds the straps sound like someone is knocking or beating on the door to get in. This last time has been over 30 mins straight. LOL
We have lost power only once for a short time. Very unusual in a storm this big. At times the rain sounds like it is going to beat thru.
(Especially for sister Shirl, pig lover)
My Sherry’s family always gathered in one area of the house during a storm. My family paid no attention to it. I loved to play outside barefoot in a summer thunderstorm. I though lightening was beautiful, not scary (still do). Are you okay in a lightning and thunder storm?
