Back to Normal…

Well, for January!  Flurries and sunshine this morning.  A light coating of snow.  And, it’s COLD.

Stormy Night Ahead

Only rain so far in Avalon and Stone Harbor, NJ.  Earlier, I checked out the inlet without getting completely drenched from the ocean spray (just a little salty!)

Will post snow pictures (??) tomorrow on Twitter.

Weather?

Winter weather at the shore is a roller coaster of temperatures and conditions.

The wind is a huge factor of course:  north west = COLD; north east = stormy/damp; south west = a winter reprieve; and south east  = a chilly spring like day.

Still worthwhile to dress accordingly…and enjoy the views!

Shore House Odors

Yesterday, I previewed a totally renovated townhouse on the bay.  Custom kitchen and baths, beautiful wood floors, attractive furnishings…AND a plug in air freshener that took my breath away!

The owner may believe the scent adds to the appeal, but I assume it’s covering up a problem.   And potential buyers could have the same reaction.

dampridShore properties are closed up for long periods of time.  Plug in air fresheners (even the scented oil diffusers) are just too strong for the space.

If you want to eliminate a damp smell (after confirming it’s not caused by water issues in the crawl space or a leak), I suggest Damp Rid.

The crystals absorb moisture and remove musty smells without adding a fake, perfume odor.

Potential tenants, buyers…and their real estate agents…will appreciate the difference!

Open or Closed?

PathThis is a tough time of year.  Many island business owners take a well deserved break, and others keep the lights on for the loyal year round patrons.

There are breakfast, lunch, and dinner options (not just Wawa!)

You can still buy a bottle of wine from Fred’s, or a trash can from Seashore Ace.

And, several gift/clothing shops offer weekend hours.

See?  It’s not THAT quiet!
