The foreclosure house across the street is REALLY looking abandoned now.
The people who lived there have been gone for about 6 weeks so the yard is really, really overgrown; there are flyers sticking out of the mailbox; yellowed newspapers on the driveway, and the whole place just has the "look" of an abandoned house.
It's the first thing I see every morning when I step out on my front porch. It's really a bummer. There's no for sale sign yet. I guess, because there are so many foreclosures now, that it takes a while to work through the system... I'm sure eventually there will be a for sale sign, and then hopefully someone will buy it before long. Until then, it looks quite pitiful. :-(
The whole thing kind of underscores the "crappy economy" we're all dealing with right now. (I still can't believe Senator Phil Gramm said America is full of whiners and we're in a 'mental recession'. Could he be more out of touch?!
