I just looked outside and it was snowing! Today is April 9th, and it is unseasonably cold and windy in Williamsburg. The temperature outside is currently 49º with a windchill in the low 40's. I guess it was just a fluke that it snowed here for a few minutes.  We had a mild winter here, but it appears to me that spring has not yet taken up residence yet althought the high Monday is projected to be 76º.  Have you had crazy weather in your area today?

Under contract 3488 Frederick Drive Toano! This was a bank owned home and now all the paperwork is in and it is under contract.  The buyers drove here from Kansas this past weekend with their two children. and they will be living in temporary housing until it closes, so it can't happen too soon for them!      The house is still showing as active in the MLS but as soon as my managing broker reviews the contract tomorrow it will show as pending.

Does my grandson love his daddy or what?! I just have to say, that my grandson is a very lucky little boy.  He has grandparents that love him and help take care of him when both of his parents are at work. Just look at how he and his daddy bond!
