  • The Most Effective Ways to Winterize Your Northwest Home

    The Most Effective Ways to Winterize Your Northwest Home Nearly every winter without fail, my parents lose power for an unpredictable length of time, from a few hours to several days. They live in a lovely home in the woods in Gig Harbor, and their house is surrounded by tall evergreens, which, though beautiful, tend to topple over or drop large branches onto the power lines whenever it’s windy or snowing. Also every year without fail, my siblings and I gently suggest that they invest in a generator. (One year my brother even bought them this baby for Christmas.) My parents always reply that generators use too much power, are noisy, etc., and insist that they like living Little-House-on-the-Prairie-style every winter, with candles and canned soup and coffee on the wood-burning stove. To each their own. It is true, however, that you don’t have to go to the extremes of buying a generator to winterize.

    Cozy Island Getaways Around the Puget Sound The stretch right before Thanksgiving often feels like one of the hardest periods in the work year—the weather is turning colder and damper, and many of us feel tired, a little burned out, and badly in need of a pause. This last weekend, Pickett Street enjoyed a team retreat on Vashon Island, and the team highly recommends that you take some time out for yourself, too!   Every year the team takes a day away from the business and the office to reflect, connect and plan for the year ahead. This is critical when it comes to ensuring that all team members are on the same page and understand the history of the team. 2020 is going to be an epic year for Pickett Street.   If you’re longing to get away, but don’t have the time or money to go far, you might consider that the Puget Sound area is known for its gorgeous islands. With the currently chilly fall weather,            islands can offer weekend getaways or day trips with plenty of opportunities to bundle up and enjoy fresh air, views, and good food.   Vashon Island…Read more
