    Calculated Risk is a really good blog on the housing meltdown. It’s also really depressing. And from the Department of Personal Anecdotes I note that as recently as 3 months ago I was preparing to take out a HELOC to put a metal roof on our home. That project is on indefinite hold, due entirely to the problems in the housing market.

    I’m starting to worry more about the trickle down effect (of the housing crash) leading to a major credit card meltdown, too… rather depressing to think of what it could mean for a lot of families… (probably no gov’t bailout on that one).
    and oh, Happy New Year.

    Stupid me did take out a HELOC in July when our central air shot craps.
