Lynnwood Is Hosting Community Disaster Preparedness Town Hall on March 15

As many/most of you know, Western Washington is due (perhaps even overdue) for a major earthquake. The best thing we can do is prepare. And our friends at the City of Lynnwood have pulled together the following event below to do just that.   What would you do in a natural disaster or emergency? Would Read More …

Reflecting On Edmonds

It’s been a lovely weekend here in South Snohomish county. Yesterday I made my way down to the Edmonds Barbershop. For me, that’s John’s barbershop. When I lived down there, I’d walk there once a month or so. He always did a fantastic job. Then we moved to north Lynnwood, nearly Mukilteo. Slowly, the drive Read More …

Real Estate thoughts on “Is Now The Best Time To Buy A Home?”

As a Realtor this is a regular question: “is now a good time to buy?” Ultimately, my answer is “it depends”. The question boils down solely to economics. After the last few years, people are looking for a guarantee that their investment will only steadily increase from this point forward. Well, that’s impossible. Prices fluctuate. Read More …

Random Randomness

Well, it’s the Friday Eve of a rather maniacal week. February has nearly completed its arc, March is queuing up its show. This month felt solidly off balance. Busyness facilitates that sensation. This past Tuesday my son and I went to see Roman vs Fousey. They’re two YouTube stars popular amongst near sociopathic youths, so Read More …

Lynnwood, My Fair City, Is Looking For A Human Resources Director

This is a very diverse community with many languages spoken, different cultures represented, and business types in place. Lynnwood employs 333 FTE’s Read More …

The Lynnwood Wendy’s Remodel Is Coming Right Along

While driving to work the other morning and waiting for the light at 196th and 52nd (right next to Wilcox park), I got this glimpse of the work being done on the old Lynnwood Wendy’s. It feels funny to consider it “old”, and it was built when was in junior high or high-school. Most importantly, Read More …

Edmonds “I Love Dicks” Video

This was shot and posted just about a year ago. Sadly, I completely missed this car show. It’s mindblowing to see the parking lot this full, especially since Winco hadn’t opened yet. Check out the number of cars backed up onto 99 waiting to just pull into the lot. This is a bit long at Read More …
