Title: Philly News (1-29-16)

I hope everyone enjoyed their snow weekend.  I went to West Virginia to do some skiing at Snowshoe.  Enjoyed the snow and the entire WV experience.  First time I have ever driven south to go skiing from Philadelphia.  The mountain was not as enjoyable as the Catskills (NY - Hunter/Windham) but is substantially better than the Poconos.

I thought today's article on the PPA vs Uber was interesting.  I do wish the city government would allow us to evolve with technology instead of protectionism.  

I did not comment on the Chip Kelly firing.  I do wish he had one more year in Philly to see how his plan would have played out.  I think he will learn from his personality issues with the Eagles when he is in SF.  I keep thinking about Bellicheck and Pete Carroll

On the real estate side, I do have a new listing at 802 N 16th.  Triplex at $799,900 with annual rental income of $66,540.  Know anyone looking for an investment property purchase?  

Ski wise, who can take some short notice trips up north or out west to catch some fresh snow?  If so, please let me know as I am always searching for the next storm.
