Throw Back Thursday  When The Rains Were Too Much It Was 66 Years ago today when the results of 3 days of rain caused by Hurricane Diane left the tate with never to be forgotten memories.  There were no flood control dams in place, and the valley created by the normally  mild Naugatuck River became a deadly and violent tsunami destroying all in it's path.The Naugatuck River cuts south from the Mass state line and ultimately flows into Long Island Sound after merging with  the Housatonic River.  From where I grew up in Waterbury's South End, I could walk to the end of the street and see the tops of the factory buildings that lined the banks of the river.The vew I got was considerably different than the  photo below offers.When the waters inally receded, 47 people had been killed, some ne...

Not A Normal Summer Haze Our sky has been hazy for a few days now and it will continue as such for a while longer.When the wind blows that haze carries more than just a tint. It also carries a fragrance of burning wood.The effects of the west Coast wildfires have crossed the country and people are being warmed to protect themselves from the hyper haze.  At risk are people with allergies as well as anyone with respiratory ailments.  WOne would think that with a heavy rain the haze would clear out, but it is replaced with the winds coming from the west.These photos are of the sky over Waterbury valley taken on a late afternoon.We can only hope that the western fires get controlled and even then we will feel the results long after that. That's Not a Normal Hazy Summer Sky

A Five Star Review for a Short Sale in Connecticut We should all do our best at all times to help our clients with their real estate needs. In the current market, selling a home is not as difficult with low inventory. However, there are always issues with homes that make them a touch more needy when it comes to getting the deal through closing.Such was the case with the family I represented in a recent short sale. After the final letters were exchanged and the family knew they were out of trouble with their lender, I received the review posted below in an email from their daughter. My family had the privilege of working with Realtor® Mr. Ed Silva of MapleRidge Realty in Waterbury CT.  After all of the experiences we had trying to save our home, when we met Ed he placed our minds at ease...

Memorial Day 2021  Remembering The Cost Of FreedomOriginally started after the Civil War as a day of remembrance for the fallen soldiers on both sides of that war, Memorial Day as evolved into a day of honor for all combatants who gave their lives in any war our nation has been involved with since.As a kid in grade school, I well remember seeing veterans on corners with poppies for sale, raising money to plant flags on graves of veterans on this Holiday.  The significance was something that came into focus when we had to learn the poem "In Flanders Fields".The poem was written by a surgeon after a particularly bloody battle in World War 1.  As he viewed the battle field after the carnage and exhausting work, he was startled to see the red poppies waving in the grass stained with the blo...
