I am setting in my motel room in Ottumwa watching the snow blowing around. I would hate to be out measuring a house here today. I am here visiting family. I appraise in Bakersfield CA. Talked to my wife this mornig at home and it was 60 degrees. Do you charge more in the winter? I lived here for 27 years and couldn't imagine doing an appraisal in this weather. I guess after 9 years in California I have become a fair weather person.

Hey Ken, as long as you are in Ottumwa, give my cousin (by marriage) a holler. HIs name is Mike Gowdy and he lives over on Dahlonega Rd.

My wife and I have property just NW of there... it is west of Lovilia about 8 miles & NW of Albia about 18 miles).

TEL2002...I am quite fimiliar with Dahlonega Rd and also the Lovilla area. I got out of there as fast as I could. If it was not for my daughters living there and my two grand daughters I would not have gone in February. I got on the plane in Des Moines and it was 16 degrees, got off the plane in L.A. and it was 64 degrees. Any bets on where I want to live?
