Another Snow Day

by Buddy Frey

Good morning from snow/ice covered Charlotte, NC.  A very unusual 3 weeks of weather for us, as we have seen 2 major storms the first coming on Christmas day and the 2nd, yesterday. 

For those of you who are used to snow, 4" or so doesn't seem like much.  True.  I'm originally from Chicago and it took the "Great 1968 Blizzard" to shut the city down.  A little different story around here though...we just don't have the removal capacity and a couple of inches of the white stuff slows us down to a crawl.

I miss the snow and actually look forward to our infrequent winter storms.  To me it brings a sense of peace and natural quiet...kinda reminds me of home too.  So I say let it snow...another snow day never hurt anyone!

Oh, by the way...If you know of anyone who is looking to buy or sell real esate here in the Charlotte area please pass their name and number on and I will make sure to follow up and take great care of them!

Rain Rain . . . Hey, It's Sunny!

by Buddy Frey

I thought it was April showers bring May flowers...not this year!  What a month.  So far here in the Charlotte area, Mother Nature has sent us 6.8 inches of rain.  A normal May month for us here in the Queen City is 3.3 inches.

May has been crazy wet.  Events like Quail Hollow, Coca-Cola 500, my Golf Game and others have been delayed, postponed and cancelled due to the over abundance of rain.  This month the precipitation has come in what I call the soothing mist form, the all day drizzle and like last night, the monsoon down pour...you know, the kind of storm when you're driving and can't see 50 yards in front of you!

Year to date, we are actually 1 inch above our 18.19 average yearly precip.  Most lakes around the here are getting close to "Full Pool".  And the air quality...Good to Excellent with little to no readings on the allergy index. 

All this rain has but ended last year's drought conditions and water restrictions.  My lawn has made an almost full recovery from last season...(thank goodness for all this rain 'cause I'm not the best lawn farmer in the world).  And across the Piedmont Region...green, green, green.  I can't remember when I've seen it so lush around here. 

So I say enjoy, enjoy all this rain!  Get out there and get wet and muddy.  Hey you know "Singing in the Rain" and "Rain Drops Keep Falling on My Head" (anyone else have others?) just enjoy.  A few sunny days though would be nice too  :-)

Back to Work!

by Buddy Frey

Well, the Holidays are over...the Carolina Panther laid an egg last Saturday so I guess it's time to get back to things that are really important-like work and GOLF.  Although it is a bit cold to play golf this week (18 degrees today), we often get to knock it around here in the Charlotte area during the winter months.  Temps in the mid 60's is pretty common.

Speaking of golf, if you're planning on visiting friends or family or just heading in to the area, for sure bring your clubs.  We have several championship courses to choose from and most have public access.  Many of the courses are right within their own community or subdivision.  You can actually visit the "Links" section on my web-site to get information on the different courses available.

And while you're here golfing enjoying the beautiful Carolina blue skies and inviting weather, why not check out the Charlotte NC real estate scene as well.  It's the perfect time to stop by and see what's available.  We have plenty of golf locations from Lake Norman to Ballantyne to Ft. Mill, SC and more. So give us a call...we would be happy show you around  We look forward to hearing from you!
