Mint Hill, NC - Brrr, the cold weather is finally here!  We have been experiencing an Indian Summer of sorts here in the Carolinas.  Don't get me wrong, I love it.  The temperature reached almost 70 degrees over the weekend.  That said when the cold arrives and our thermometer reads in the 40's for the high and the 20's for the low freezing temperatures can play havoc with the routine of our daily lives.  My favorite handyman that I use personally and recommend to everyone I meet was kind enough to send out an email with these helpful hints this morning. It's that time of year again when:      If the water in your home is supplied by a well please be reminded of the potential for your water pipes to freeze due to being located above ground at the head of the well (under a dome or inside...

Mint Hill, NC Happy 4th of July!!  I live in Mint Hill and and sell Mint Hill, NC homes  and I must say we are a very patriotic bunch.  My subdivision, Ellington Farm,  has a contest every year to see who can decorate their house, yard, mailbox in the most patriotic manor.  We have great fun starting with a parade from all willing neighbors who compete for most patriotic costume, float, bike and dog.  After we parade around the neighborhood we break for lunch and have a neighborhood picnic along with games and even a watermelon eating contest (we're also very competitive). This year's events did not disappoint and I think you will agree by the pictures how much fun we have.  If you are thinking of moving to Mint Hill, NC  and are interested in Mint Hill homes for sale or homes for sale ...
