New Year's Eve day started with an unexpected blizzard in Sedona. By mid-morning there was already a half a foot on the snow on the ground, and the 2 main highways in town were closed. Traffic and town were at a complete standstill and shutdown, and if you were out, you were literally trapped for hours. When the roads finally opened up at 3:30 in the afternoon, I made the quick dash out the door from work. It was time to make the 9 mile drive home. My quick dash to the car in the parking lot was all that was quick, as the normal 20 minute drive home, took 3 and a half hours. What an experience that was.
Now for the big dips in the roller coast ride ... February started off fine, and then the 2nd week of the month, we got a phone call from the Property Management Company that the owners of our rental house decided they were selling the house, and we needed to move by the end of March. For those of you not familiar with the Sedona rental market, well there is none unless you are extremely wealthy. It took about 1 day to realize there were not any livable homes available to rent for less than a couple thousand bucks a month. We quickly decided that if we were going to be over-extended and broke paying rent, what about being broke and buying a house. Sounded like a great idea.

Whew ... what a busy 5 months. Pam and I are looking forward to the continuing journey of making our new home, OUR home. We are also looking forward to celebrating our 20th Anniversary in June, and a return trip to Maui and Kauai where we were married and honeymooned.
As we slide through Spring, and towards Summer, I hope all of you are well, safe, happy, healthy, and wish you all the best always. ~ Jeff
