  1. I’m going house hunting in Tucson this weekend and my daughter, who is also going, told me about a friend of hers who lives in LA and owns a house in Flagstaff AZ that she rents through AirBnB and it pays her mortgage.

    No hurricanes in AZ. The Mexican hurricanes come to Tucson to die as “Monsoon season” in August.

    Be safe. I have another daughter in Charleston. SC.

  2. I just learned what AirBnB is today. It would take a special kind of tenant to move in while a hurricane is coming i would think.

  3. I had a friend who used to trade houses for vacations. She lived in Newport Beach in a very nice house. They would go to Paris for three weeks and the Parisians would switch with them.

    I suspect it is a similar idea to AirBnB. No rent, just a trade for a few weeks or a month.
