Analyzing June new home sales & pricing figures from our monthly builder survey. As one builder noted: “It’s not fun to be a builder anymore.” Lumber relief is nice but pick your poison on other issues. Market commentary from across the country to follow...
#Richmond builder: “It's not fun to be a builder anymore. Cost pressure is killing us. Not only will builders like myself who take 12-24 months to build a house lose margin from increases, but the affordability is becoming a major issue.”
#Atlanta builder: “Costs have driven up prices & we’re no longer preselling. We will not sell a home until frame stage, so our sales numbers are off for June while awaiting framing stage.”

New home sales fell in May, Y/Y & M/M. Theme of the month was sales decline by builder design. Few comments on demand slowing or skittish buyers, even w/new home prices +18% Y/Y nationally (survey record). Builder commentary from across the country per our survey to follow...
#Nashville builder: “Gapped out. Sales resume in June as new communities & phases start to open. By moving ability to contract on inventory homes later to finished drywall stage (window installation stage previously), expect sales to show continued decline. Decline by design.”
#Charlotte builder: “Paused sales from mid-May to mid-June in all communities & will selectively release homes for sale in the last 2 weeks of June & coming months. Sales look lower vs. last month but was capped due to limited lot availability & no inventory.”

A little snow in #ColoradoSprings made our bighorn sheep spectacular today. @COParksWildlife is baiting the Rampart herd daily as it prepares to capture about 20 to relocate in Beaver Creek Canyon south of Victor to establish a new herd. Here are some photos and videos. (1 of 11)
The predecessor agency to @COParksWildlife was the first in the U.S. to capture and relocate bighorn sheep in 1944 after they were hunted to near extinction in the 1800s-1900s. Today, we have about 7,000 Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep in Colorado. (2/11)
After a snowfall, the Rampart bighorn sheep herd in #ColoradoSprings was feeling feisty. Look closely as one ram launches from a tall rock with a ewe close behind. (3/11)

Protest leaders here referencing some of the violence in other cities, and saying that they will not engage in any sort of escalation, blocking of traffic, jumping on cars, and asking everyone to do the same.

Leading the crowd in chanting "Peaceful Protest!"

Going to march now, with direction to stick to the sidewalks and not mess up the community.
There's a drone watching us as we march.

We did move to the middle of the road for a bit, in the median as traffic flowed around us, before moving on to a side road closed to traffic.

So, today, I'm declaring a #SocialMedia #War on you. Your #PrinthouseParkway location is a #clusterfuck of carelessness and stupidity.
Daughter was seen there by a Nurse Practitioner on the 10th of March.

NP provided two scripts, to be transmitted electronically, including a steroid and pain relief.
Daughter went to pick up scripts.

No scripts.

Oh, there's a record, according to @Walmart pharmacy in #ColoradoSprings. They say, electronic record shows that @PVCHC #cancelled the scripts.

Ten days to get transmitted electronically?
Cancelled scripts?

A thread about COVID-19, asking young people including US college students to please stay home despite all the temptations and the low mortality rate for young people so far.
One person I know has already died and now at least 4 are sick because of transmission at a duplicate bridge club in my home town. This thread shows data from a study of transmission in a mall in China.
This is from a study published in Emerging Infectious Disease on March 12, 2020. The authors studied a chain of transmission in Wenzhou, China (which is not in the Wuhan quarantine area).

See this bobcat? Notice its large teeth? Imagine the claws within its big paws. A #ColoradoSprings woman picked up this injured wild cat and put it in her car where her child was seated! NEVER PICK UP WILD ANIMALS. She was lucky. Please call @COParksWildlife and let us handle.
@COParksWildlife We removed the bobcat, which was mortally wounded. Luckily, it was too injured to react to being picked up and placed in a car. But no one should EVER try this. This could have been tragic.
@COParksWildlife This is the sight that greeted @COParksWildlife officer Sarah Watson when she responded to a call about an injured bobcat on Wednesday. An unrestrained wild bobcat in the back of an SUV under a blanket. A child's car seat was just feet away. NEVER PICK UP WILDLIFE!
