The Dreaded Winter

October 26th, 2011

Across the USA you will find winter warnings, freeze warnings and various storm warnings. Planning for this has been in the works for many, while others put it off as long as possible.

Colorado & Utah weather is quickly changing having several alerts in place with the first winter snow, and even allowing for some travel plan changes without being penalized by the air line companies as some cities could get as much as 8 inches of snow in the next 48 hours. One thing to always remember to look for is the warnings of road closings, top schools closing.

As you watch the changes going east you will find warmer weather, some rain and maybe even some flooding. While looking in Massachusetts, you can’t help but be amazed at the fall colors on the trees, the nice green grass and wonder how much longer before you will find such places like Dover homes covered in a white blanket.

Many people use this time of year to do more and more online shopping. Local searching can include, holiday shopping, car shopping, local classifieds all the way across to real estate for sale.

With the many weather warnings happening and winter fast approaching if you pick a few locations to shop online homes for sale you could as far North this week and find 3-6 inches around New York, and the western mountains in Massachusetts. These random placed storms will affect many regions; while we can all still go shopping for Dover real estate and local classifieds wherever else we might be located across the USA.

Everyone please take note that you if you are anywhere it may snow, you should always have your scarper, a pair of boots, gloves, extra pants, a warm coat and a blanket in your car, and always a first aid kit as well.

Happy pre-winter to all…

Medford, Mass Is A Great Choice

August 8th, 2011

Growing up I remember many of the shows that I loved were based in Medford. Not knowing exactly where this was or if it was a real town or not; it pushed to the back of my mind. Once my high school years came around, I was looking into colleges and universities. Knowing I wanted to move to a new city, I chose to start looking in the east coast. My best friend was going to Harvard. We wanted to be close. I started looking in Massachusetts for schools. It was then that I found a town called Medford. That little town of Medford from my favorite show spurred my interest. I began looking there for a college to attend.

I came across Tufts University which is located in Medford, Massachusetts. Since I was called the “Tuff Girl” growing up; this seemed to fit me well, and they offered many areas of study. I began doing more research on the school. I came across an article stating that Tufts was listed as the 39th overall top college. I filled out my paperwork and was accepted.

In the last few months of our senior year, my friend & I started looking at housing options. Neither of us wanted to stay on campus as it was our dream to room together in college. We were not going to the same college. So, we went online and did a Google search for Medford Real Estate. This brought up many options for us. We found a great site called and were able to contact local realtors about the Medford Homes we liked.

This took place years ago. My friend and I are still very close. We still live near each other. Over the years as we have advanced in our careers, we have had to move into different homes due to our family size growing. Each time we moved, we went back to the site and again were pleasantly surprised with the rapid searches and options available for us. To this day, if someone says they are moving, I will write down the site for them and hope their experiences are as great as ours.
