Located only 63 miles from most of Weber State housing is Park City, Utah. One of the great yearly attractions in Park City, Utah is the Sundance Film Festival. Every January this 10 day event is the most attended independent film showcase in the USA showing more than 100 films to over 40,000 people. The festival is attended by celebrities, movie industry executives and lucky members of the general public who are able to purchase tickets.
Originally chaired by Robert Redford, the first incarnation of the Sundance Film Festival took place in Salt Lake City in 1978 and under the name “Utah/US Film Festival.” Among the films shown at this first festival were A Streetcar Named Desire starring Marlon Brando and Deliverance starring Burt Reynolds. The festival moved to Park City in 1981 and was renamed the Sundance Film Festival in 1991 after The Sundance Kid, a character famously portrayed by Robert Redford in the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in 1969.
TRAVEL A SHORT DISTANCE FROM WEBER STATE HOUSING
TO SEE INDEPENDENT FILMS
The Sundance Film Festival has been the vehicle to launch many now famous independent directors to prominence. Notable independent directors receiving their start at Sundance include Quentin Tarantino with his movie Reservoir Dogs in 1992 and Kevin Smith for his movie Clerks in 1994. In recent years many other independent films showcased at the Sundance Film Festival have gone on to mainstream success including Whiplash in 2014 which was subsequently nominated for Best Film Editing, Best Sound Mixing and Best Supporting Actor (J.K. Simmons) at the Academy Awards.
The Sundance Film Festival is one of many attractions that draw tourism to Park City adding by some estimates $80,000,000 to the local economy annually. Tourism, including skiing and other outdoor activities has been the mainstay of the Park City economy since the 1990s. Prior to this, mining was the main economic force in the area. But it is tourism that now makes commercial real estate in Park City such a hot commodity.
It is the end of March and of course that means it is now time for our annual list of top 100 incidents of water damage Farmington for all to enjoy.
100. The incident where the Farmington river flooded and inundated the Jones homestead.
99. The incident where it rained for three straight days and water seeped into the basement of the Smith house.
98. There was the time when (during the same three day rain storm referred to in incident number 99) where the Taylor home down the road from the Smith home experienced some moisture which caused mold to grown in the crawl space underneath the stairs.
97. There was another time where the Pullen family experienced water damage Farmington to their barn where the hinges to the doors rusted and broke three months later.
96. There was another time when the Lindgren family experienced water damage to their dog house in their back yard. The wood from which the dog house was built rotted out over the course of two weeks and the dog house had to be thrown out. This was not such a significant loss as the Lindgren family dog (who never used the house by the way) had died the previous year and no one ever got around to getting rid of it.
95. Then there was another incident of water damage to the downstairs powder room in the Maher house. Water seeped in through the roof. Apparently some shingles had blown off in a wind storm not too long ago. The water seepage caused the dry wall to sag a bit. The Mahers repaired the damage with spackle and paint. It is unclear whether the shingles on the roof were ever replaced.
94. Then there was another incident of water damage where the Farley family car which had been parked at the bottom of the street was flooded out.
To be continued…
My neighbor has not displayed signs and banners from his porch in some time. Susan, his neighbor to whom his signs were directed has presumably finished her treatment and is doing well. Moreover, we know that the home owner’s association sent him a letter to stop hanging signs from his front porch because many of the neighbors complained. It is clear to me that this sign hanging neighbor has a creative urge to communicate to the public through the use of signs. It is equally clear to me that this urge has been squelched by the powers that be. I have to wonder, however, if this urge had not been squelched what new signs might we have seen?
WHAT SIGNS AND BANNERS MIGHT WE HAVE SEEN?
One has to wonder what new signs we might have seen displayed from my neighbor’s porch. Perhaps he might have found another neighbor who was suffering from a sickness or other misfortune to whom he might address a whole new series of signs. Perhaps he might start a running commentary on the current political situation. Perhaps he might continue his sign dialog (or monologue) with Susan on some topic other than her sickness and treatment.
The possibilities are literally limitless. Conceivably and idea could be translated into an image or words and then displayed from a sign. What if everybody started displaying signs from their porches to the people living across the street from them. What kind of world might evolve from that situation? What if we were all mandated by law to display signs from our front porch indicating our thoughts on various subjects? Obviously, in our free society, such a law would be unenforceable as well as unconstitutional. Still, we are free to speculate on what is, what is not and what might be.
In this episode of the Home and Garden Top 100 Blog we shall endeavor to deconstruct the maid service Salt Lake City and examine it for what it actually is. At its most basic level what we are looking at is a maid service. That is a business that provides cleaning services to its customers. Specifically this business has employees who will go to the house of a customer with cleaning equipment and proceed to clean the customer’s house until it reaches the desired level of cleanliness. The specific activities these employees will perform are varied but can include mopping, vacuuming, dusting, emptying garbage, cleaning toilets and surfaces, washing dishes, washing clothes and generally tidying up.
GETTING DOWN TO THE NITTY GRITTY REGARDING MAID SERVICE SALT LAKE CITY
In the first paragraph we discussed the maid service and the activities it generally performed. The second part of this equation is the fact that the maid service is located in Salt Lake City, Utah. This means that the offices of the maid service are located in Salt Lake City. This also means that the customer base of the maid service is also likely located in Salt Lake City. This of course makes sense as it would be an inefficient use of resources for a maid service that is located in Salt Lake City to service a customer base that is located in some other place.
At this point, the reader should now be well versed in the component parts of a maid service that happens to be located in Salt Lake City, Utah. In this final third paragraph I would like to express the hope that the reader get a sense for our deconstructed subject of inquiry’s holistic self. Because this is the level on which people will interact with the maid service when it arrives at the customer’s home.
It is with extreme reluctance and a heavy heart that the Home and Garden Top 100 blog must report the existence of water damage Ogden this week. The water damage happened to a house in Ogden late on Monday evening. The water damage seems to be the result of heavy rains and the resultant flooding. Rising waters began to surround the house around 6:00 Pm in the evening. The inhabitants of the house did not see a reason to leave at that time but their anxiety levels were clearly rising. By 8:00 PM the water had risen to a level where it became apparent that the family should seek higher ground.
FAMILY ESCAPES WATER DAMAGE OGDEN
The family left their house around 9:00 PM with as many possessions as they could pack and carry with them. They found accommodations in a nearby town and waited out the rains. On the following day they returned to the house to assess the damage. Unfortunately the water seems to have inundated the first floor of the house as well as the basement. At first glance there appeared to be minimal structural damage. The most significant damage was to the sheet rock in the walls of the first floor.
The carpeting and wood floors on the first floor and in the basement will have to be removed and replaced. Obviously the saturated sheet rock will have to be removed and replaced as well. As of yet there does not appear to be any significant mold issues but that is always a concern after a house has undergone water damage. A mitigation crew has been assigned to the house. This crew will remove the damaged materials and deploy fans and heaters to dry out the affected areas of the house. By all estimates it will take a month or so to return the house to its pre-flood state.
For those of you in the market for Weber State housing there are several factors that you should be aware of. The first factor that you should be aware of is that there are a great deal of options available close to the Weber State University campus. These options include private rentals and apartment building style housing. Having an apartment near campus should be a top priority for any Weber State University student. This is true because having a home that is conveniently located near campus will decrease the time spent commuting to campus and thus providing more time for studying and attending class.
WEBER STATE HOUSING OPTIONS ABOUND!
Another very important factor that a prospective Weber State University student should consider are the pros and cons related to living with a room mate. On the one hand, living with a room mate will generally reduce the living expenses associated with housing. This makes sense because a room mate will decrease the monthly amount of money spent on rent as well as potentially decreasing the amount spent on food if these sorts of expenses are shared between room mates. On the other hand, however, living with a room mate can be difficult especially if there are personality differences between the two (or possibly more) people sharing a common living space.
The final most important factor that a prospective Weber State University student should be aware of is the condition of the housing he or she may ultimately choose. An old, dilapidated building might save a person a few extra dollars a month but this might not be worth it if the living conditions are too low. For example, it is important that the heat work properly, that there is a reliable internet connection, that the water is drinkable and that the housing is free of mold.
There are many Utah travel agencies to choose from if you are looking to take a trip in 2017. When considering the right travel agency for you the Home and Garden Top 100 Blogs suggests you also consider the following factors. First of all you need to make sure that the travel agency has a good reputation. This determination can be easily accomplished by reading online reviews about the travel agency in question. If there are no reviews at all you might want to consider that a red flag. Yelp.com is always a good reference for this type of research. Second of all you will want to know if the travel agency can make the arrangements you want them to make. For this information you can ask your friends and associates, check out the travel agency’s website or even call up the travel agency and ask them in person. You will want to know that they can do what you want them to do before you engage their services.
Do Your Research About Utah Travel Agencies
Effective travel agencies have connections in the world of travel and tourism. This means that they should know all the tricks of the trade. They will know what sort of travel you will need to get to the destination of your choice. For example, the effective travel agency will know if the best way to get from where you are to where you want to be is by train, plane, bus, car, boat or some other mode of transportation. They will also know or be able to find out what tourist locations are available in the vicinity of the location to which you intend to travel. This might include museums, monuments, restaurants and other attractions. A good travel agent will also be able to make suggestions that you might not have considered about your destination.
The Home and Garden Top 100 Blog wants you to hire a maid service Salt Lake City. We want you to do this because your house (which happens to be located in Salt Lake City) is a complete and total mess. Allow me to be a little more specific. You have left dirty socks on the floor. The trash can is overflowing. The sink is full of dirty dishes. The toilet needs a good scrubbing. The dust on some surfaces is an inch thick. And quite frankly, you are not capable of cleaning it yourself or you would have done it already.
A Maid Service Salt Lake City Will Change Your Life
Hiring a maid service will change your life for several reasons. First of all, by hiring a maid service you will liberate yourself both from having to clean the house yourself but also the worry (if such a worry exists in your mind) that you will have to make the time and expend the effort to clean the house at some point in the immediate future. Second of all (and perhaps most the obvious reason) once you hire a maid service to clean your house your house will finally be clean.
Not only will your house be clean but it will be professionally clean. That means it will be much cleaner that you are willing and able to clean it on your own. Moreover, if you hire the maid service to visit your house on a consistant and ongoing basis your house will be clean on a more consisent basis than you are willing or able to make it clean. This makes sense because your time is valuable and cleaning your house is not your full time job. Because cleaning your house is a maid service’s full time job they will always do a better job than you will or can.
Most loyal readers of the Home and Garden Top 100 blog should be well aware of the necessity to protect their home from water damage Utah. This is true regardless of whether they live in Utah or any other state. Certainly if said reader lived in a state other that Utah they would be protecting their home from water damage (whatever the name of their state is). But really, this distinction is of no matter because water damage is water damage no matter what state (or country for that matter) it happens to occur. So in that respect, water damage Utah can really happen in any state when you think about it.
Proceeding from the well established proposition that water damage Utah can happen in any state let us now discuss how a reader of the Home and Garden Top 100 blog should go about protecting their house therefrom. One of the best ways to do this is to not build your house on a flood plain. It goes without saying that floods are more likely to happen on flood plains than areas that are not designated as flood plains. Accordingly, it also goes without saying that it is a good practice to avoid building a house on a flood plain in order to avoid that same house incurring water damage.
Another way to protect a house from water damage is to make sure that it is ensured against flood damage. Of course this type of protection occurs after the water damage has been incurred. Nevertheless, most home owner’s insurance policies do not protect against flood damage. It is for this reason that the Home and Garden Top 100 Blog strongly recommends home owners purchase a separate flood insurance policy. This is especially true if the house in question has been built upon a flood plain.
Many people speculate as to whether life exists on other planets. On the one hand, the universe is so vast containing not only billions of stars but billions of galaxies each of which potentially containing billions of stars. Each star system has the potential of containing planets. Most planets are inhospitable to life as we know it. But given the sheer number of potential planets it is not difficult to imagine that even some small fraction of them could and do contain life such as we know it. On the other hand, despite the un-provable and random reports of encounters with aliens there have been no creditable reports of actually seeing any of this potential extraterrestrial life.
Another aspect to consider (one that probably not people consider) regarding this topic is whether the aliens that may potentially exist might have maid services the way we do here on Earth. Hear me out on this one. The fact that we live on a habitable planet not only confirms that such an occurrence is possible but also suggests that it might also exist somewhere else. In the same way, the fact that a maid service Salt Lake City exists suggests that not only there are maid services in other cities but perhaps also on other planets as well.
Many people might make the observation that this sort of speculation is ridiculous. Why would anyone waste their time speculating about whether a maid service Salt Lake City might exist on another planet much less write a blog post about it? There is really no credible argument to refute this sort of criticism. In many ways it is a ridiculous sort of speculation. On the other hand it satisfies a blog post’s word count requirements just as well as any other topic. So in that sense it is not so ridiculous as one might think.
