Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent: February 2018

Bizarre Weather in Sacramento for February

Most of the day I work intensely on my computer, answering emails. Unlike the old days when you'd be on the phone for most of the day. Why, I can recall my escrow officer days, in the 1970s. I was so happy for the newly automated IBM Selectric because I could catch up on my paperwork, which was my job, after 5:00 PM.

The reason I couldn't whip out escrow instructions during business hours was because I was on the phone most of the day, talking to sellers and buyers. It surely ate up a lot of time. Today, it's emails.

And that's what I was doing yesterday when the storm hit Sacramento. Working on my computer and being oh-so-happy I have a power back-up and a laptop with a 5-hour span on battery. You can read more in my personal blog today and see the video, too, at this link: Freaky Hailstorm in Land Park Sacramento with Photos and Video.

New Listing in Hampton Station Built in 2014
