Park models are very popular in Florida, especially for a large number of snow birds that don't want to invest in a large home with all the upkeep that has to be done during the summer - mowing lawns and such.

I need a bit more insulation for Maine.

I live in a tiny house. It's called an "apartment."

I'm not sure I follow the charm of buying a tiny house until you can buy a big house. Why not just rent an apartment?

(Not saying I don't see the charm of tiny houses for various reasons, but for the sake of ownership seems odd to me.)

We drove over that once. I read that the explosion was delayed because bad weather slowed down the preparations.

Bureaucrats can be so insensitive to the interests of taxpayers! They should announce implosions well in advance and nationwide as tourist attractions.
