It Has Been 10 Years!October 17th, 2011 to October 17th, 2021The image above was snapped by my husband well over 10 years ago.  It was my first day going to real estate school.  Rick ran out of the house while I was backing out of the garage and took a quick pic to commemorate the day.  Just a beginner at blogging...I started selling Sedona real estate back in January 2011.  I didn't know anything about ActiveRain.  I was introduced to it by another agent out of my office.  I mentioned it to my husband and he thought that joining AR would be good exposure.  It looked like the "google-juice" would be value-added.  That was more than 10 years ago.  Neither of us knew anything about blogging.  By today's standards, my first post was pretty embarrassing.  It was a copy and paste job with no...

It's The Last Day Of Summer In Arizona!Know what that means? In general, many Zonies will be glad that the triple digits will be waning (soon).  Bring on the 90ºs.  In the next month, the Snowbirds will be setting up camp and enjoying that wonderful warm winter sunshine that you only get in the sunbelt states.  The most popular states for that migration of Snowbirds are Florida and Arizona. Sedona is a transition area.  Many people have second homes in Sedona to get away from the extreme temperatures of the cold or very warm climates.    In Soldier's Pass West Sedona, as in some past years,  our last day of 100.3º was on August 5th, 2021!  When there is a lot of thunderstorms, the temperatures rarely go over 100º.  This year *Sedona experienced the 4th best monsoon in the last 11 years....

 Javelinas On Parade ~ Sedona Arizona  I got the idea to revitalize this post from the post "Having Whimsy In Our World" by Kathy Streib.  Everyone should have a little whimsy in their world! Inside the Sedona Rouge Hotel & Spa is their restaurant "Reds". I like to go there with clients and my husband because it is quiet and you can conduct business easily.  Besides, the food and service are good!  Right in the hotel foyer, you can find the artwork in the featured image above. Back in 2005, Sedona decided to answer a call to Chicago's "Cows on Parade" which was established in 1999. In Chicago, you would see cows painted in different artistic ways.  I read that someone in Chicago saw a display like this in Switzerland! Here in Sedona, highway construction was about to begin so the Chambe...

Sedona and all of Arizona Pool Safety for the 4th of July! Sheri Sperry July 1, 2021 Pool Safety Sedona Arizona  Drownings in Arizona Rank Nearly Two Times National Average Pool Safety – This is a very sad fact to report but a fact that needs to be brought to the attention of those who will be at pools with children over the 4th of July.  There is a spike in drownings on this holiday likely due to the fact that adult supervision of pools may be at a minimum for various reasons. In 2016, the Arizona Department of Health and Safety (ADHS) started reporting incidents using hospitalization data. Previously, data was acquired mainly through the fire department reports. So data results from 2016 and beyond are not comparable to years prior.   Here is the link to the most recent Annual Report ...

The first 11 out of 12 days were in the 80ºs. Almost the entire month was above 72º. There were only a couple of days we turned on the AC for a short time. May 2021 has been a little cooler compared to May 2020.  The average temperature was almost 3º cooler compared to May 2020. No days reached beyond 93.6º.  Is Sedona's climate Considered Arid or Humid? Here ...
