Well, it’s not going to happen. Nope. I just had that feeling.
We were promised a snow storm. It didn’t happen in the Lake Vermilion area. We were told to expect a dump of shovel-able snow. The only thing that got dumped were the people who were anticipating the storm.
Count me in as disappointed. Actually, I’m sure there are many more closet storm lovers who enjoy a good winter weather event. These are people who secretly slip to a quiet place, rub their hands together, fist pump the air, and do a one-person high five when the weather professionals announce big snow.
But no. Ain’t gonna happen.
So now we stoop our shoulders, lower our heads, spin in our tracks, and revert to our regularly scheduled lives. I will continue efforts to track local real estate market activity as 2012 progresses. Historical sales trend comparisons, inventory levels, pricing adjustments, and other actions from the market should appear over the coming weeks and months.
Maybe, if we’re lucky, we’ll get a call from the National Weather Service with an invitation to a March snow storm. Wait by the phone… just in case.
