LOL! Just the word MICHIGAN ushers in thoughts of the nasty Russian front :bigsmile: If I lived in Michigan at this time of the year, I'd be savoring the weather that's passing through right now. I'm sure you're not complaining dpf749!I am in Michigan. 39 degrees is the predicted LOW temp tonight. The inch or so we had is rapidly melting away. 50 degrees and sunny predicted for tomorrow. I am old enough to remember weeks on end of zero and negative temps most every year at this time, along with blowing and drifting snow by the foot. It is either global warming or just because I put my snow tires on last week.
Off topic real quick mate, but where's the bleepin' snow? Sounds like it's abiding by the strategy and ceasing all precipitation. :nuts: Just had to break the monotony of the thread for a minute, thanks!
Can I get a refund on my Epic Pass? :bigsmile: Thanks for the well versed replies, they are always welcomed! A pleasant weekend to you as well.Hi WP
Thanks for your light-hearted note. Yes, the snow has been conspicuously absent! As you know, in the west we're now in a drought. One must travel quite a distance to find good conditions.
Oh well. At least we're not associated with the snow-sports industry. Can you imagine being a ski resort owner? It's as bad as or worse than being a farmer - total dependency on the whims of the weather!
braeburnTom, thanks for all of your very generous help. I have a bit of a unique situation I wanted to get your opinion on. I had a 1st and 2nd (both purchase money loans) mortgage with Wells and I stopped making payments on both last March. In late October Wells sold my 1st to a company. They sold the rights to the loan and the servicing but the 2nd remains with Wells as of now and a debt collector starting calling 2 months ago. I finally spoke with the company that bought my 1st mortgage and they are willing to do a short sale for much less than I owe and will try to help get me a partial release on the 2nd too. WA state is a non-recourse state and from my understanding a non-deficiency state for purchase money 2nds. I called the debt collector for the 2nd mortgage today and he is baffled as to why Wells sold the 1st mortgage but thought maybe they sold the 1st so they might have some deficiency options on the 2nd mortgage since Wells no longer owns the 1st. He seemed to think that if the 1st and 2nd mortgage companies are different then Wells might have options for the getting a deficiency judgement for the 2nd. Have you ever heard of this situation or any advice? Thanks so much.
