October 24, 2011
The month of October is speeding by and the holiday season is approaching fast. Here are a few observations.
The local leaves have dropped from the trees. Significant rainfall has been scarce and the lake (Lake Vermilion) is currently near a historically low water level. The hazard and navigation buoys will be removed from the lake starting October 25th. The NOAA has the extended winter forecast in place with a fair chance of colder than normal temperatures and above average snowfall. The ongoing Ruffed Grouse season has been productive. The Whitetail Deer season is approaching and hunters will need to know changes in the hunting regulations, as well as, ideas for cooking venison.
The local real estate market will start to see dwindling inventory levels as late summer sales are closed and some Sellers remove their properties from the marketplace. A large number of very attractive listings are available, however. The Fall season can be the best time of year to approach a Seller with a purchase proposal.
Buy now and enjoy the lake as soon as the ice melts next Spring!
