October 31, 1991 vs. October 31, 2011

The Story of a Buyer and a Blizzard


In the fall of 1991, I was working with a buyer who was purchasing a condo. She closed on her new home on the morning of October 31st. She left the closing and immediately began the process of moving.

On that same autumn day, snow began to fall. The first few inches fell on warm pavement and turned to ice. By late afternoon, heavy snow was falling and by midnight over 8″ of snow had fallen.

I contacted my client that evening and learned that she and her daughter were finished moving into her new place. The storm continued over the next two days, dropping over 28″ of snow on the Twin Cities. My client and her daughter were snowed in and had plenty of time to unpack. We were thankful for the early morning closing.

Twenty years have passed and she is still living in her condo. Today there is no blizzard, no snow, no ice. We have the more normal fifty-degree temperature and the beautiful fall colors. My client has her lovely home and, perhaps, some trick-or-treating children knocking on her door.

Anyone care for a dip in the pool?

There’s something quite relaxing about swimming in the evening. There is generally less visual and auditory noise, and fewer people. It can be wonderfully romantic with the right person. If you are somewhere without a lot of city lights, you can float on your back and look up at the stars and the moon. Hmm, the pool beckons. Time to go.

I love the interior window above the vanity. It allows natural light into what would be a windowless space without it. I think this is a great design feature and wish more developers would make use of it. This bath also features a soaking tub and a separate shower with glass-framed surround.
