And A Madly Pinging Phone Wakes You...

Your phone begins "pinging" madly at 5:00am with one raucous ping after another.  As you reach for the phone your mind wanders through the possibilities:

  1. Did yesterday's closing finally fund?
  2. Is it a new client wanting to list their home?
  3. Another offer on one of my fabulous listings?

 

With excitement you reach for your phone, your mind not even registering the fact that there is a rumble coming from overhead...you scroll open the screen and discover...

ANOTHER SEVERE STORM WARNING

ANOTHER FLASH FLOOD ALERT

 

Welcome to reality...here's your morning:

 

 

 

And for those of you that may be wondering, yes - this post looks familiar because this was happening last Memorial Day weekend too.  Here's the weather map from May 30th last year!

Lisa - I can't imagine! We are cranky with a week of weather - but you have had record breaking rains all spring! How are your Manolas and Jimmy Choo shoes doing with those webbed feet you are developing

I hope this nasty weather stops soon, Lisa.  I'm sure you're all tired of it.

Lisa: If possible, it sounds like a great day to stay inside and catch-up on paperwork or just curl up with a good book. ;-)

Lisa Von Domek With all the rain you have been having in your area, farmers may need to begin growing rice!

When I read the title, I was going to tell you it was me making sure you were up. LOL Then I realized it would be 3 am. here on the Oregon coast. Not good for me..

Posted by Rob D. Shepherd, Principal Broker GRI, SRES (Windermere/lane county) over 3 years ago

Wow Lisa Von Domek , you guys sure have gotten your share of rain this year. We are actually down a bit and could use a little. How 'bout sending us an hours worth. Should do nicely!

Good morning Lisa. I'm sorry and I hope your forecast is wrong. Be careful.

I am sorry Lisa Von Domek,  Are you turning into a duck?  You had your share of rain this month.  Stay dry!

Posted by Will Hamm, "Where There's a Will, There's a Way!" (Hamm Homes) over 3 years ago

Lisa,

I remember when we were living in Napa, three weeks of rain with "sunshine breaks" of an hour or less!  We both felt like moss would start growing on our skin, it was just that damp.  In the meantime, you can sing, "The Sun will come out tomorrow!"  A

Lisa, Gheez, put those black flippers on and go swimming about your day. Or, stay at home in pjs and hot chocolate and work from home.

We usually get Amber Alerts for missing children but I would rather stay informed than not!

Have a great Memorial Day Weekend Lisa Von Domek

Good morning Lisa. Enough already with your crazy weather. You have certainly had your share of severe weather over the past few months.

Hi Lisa.  Weather warning alerts at 5AM.  Bad news given out too early.

Trying not to get the blues Dorie Dillard but I was so hoping for some sunshine this weekend.  I am worried the rain will put a damper on the Memorial Day events planned to honor our heroes.

I typically do as well Lou Ludwig but when severe storms are predicted we leave them on...just for added safety.

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 3 years ago

I agree Joe Petrowsky and I am happy to share, may I send some rain up to you?  I promise, nothing severe!

Posted by Lisa Von Domek, ....Experience Isn't Expensive.... It's Priceless! (Lisa Von Domek Team) over 3 years ago

But I would rather have them early morning than late at night Conrad Allen it's a bit nerve wracking when storms blow through in the middle of the night.

Good Morning Lisa,

It's hard to grow the business when the grounds are soggy and streets can become flooded in a very short amount of time.

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend!
