Economic Winter

By
Mortgage and Lending with Lynn Meldrum with Verico Canada First Mortgage

As i sit here in my office I'm looking out the window and what do I see but a depressing snow storm.  This is about the time that it feels like winter is never going to end here in Calgary.  All the doom and gloom of the season here in western Canada,  It's so easy to get into this type of head space of feeling depressed.  It's like the ecomony right now, I believe we are in the winter of our recession and we need to ride it out because it's not going to stay winter and the ecomony is not going to stay this bad.  We will have the spring to look forward to all the warm air and the nice hot sun.  We can go and swim in the outdoor pools and enjoy the longer days of summer.  This will also happen to the economy, it might not be as soon as the spring but it will change for the better.  We will looking at making money in our RRSP's and selling our homes when we need to without taking a hit.  We just have to make it through this ecomonic winter. 

There's always a bright side to both.  In the winter time we can go out and ski and snowboard and skate.  Just like the upside to this recession, we have low interest rates so that you can use some of the equity in your home for a buffer so that if it gets bad you can ease the way a bit financially.

Hope everyone's winter comes to a close soon.  See you in the Spring

I hear you the winter in Ohio bring the "Ohio Grey" little sun lots of overcast skies.  I start thinking spring by the 2nd week of Feb.  although it is still a month plus of yucky weather ahead.

I am just excited to write a mortgage this week, lol.  Things have been so slow until recently that I was thinking of running off to Mexico for a couple weeks.

What a great way to look at this "economic winter" - I could almost feel the sunshine coming thru the window as I was reading.

Hi Lynn, love the comparision!  Yes, spring is right around the corner - though we may need to make things bloom ourselves.

Lynn: I like your analogy. We've been awfully busy here but that's after a pretty awful 2008. I see alot of hope for 2009; the only unknown is the bad news that's still out there. And I'm afraid there's still quite a bit. Have a great day!

I agree with Paul, great analogy. In a similar vein from a warmer climate, I also have a post with a surfing analogy. I'm not sure if it will help you through the winter, but maybe you'll find it entertaining...? I do believe the market is coming back, just like the warmer seasons. Come visit us if you need a break from the cold!

Lynn, I know I'm late to comment, but I liked the optimism of your post. It's time for Spring and all the growth and opportunities that it may bring. If nothing else, then it's renewed hope :-)
