My sympathies to my readers in the Northern parts of the US and Canada. I understand you're freezing at the moment. This picture of the South Haven lighthouse on Lake Michigan drives home the point!
Brrr! I'm shivering just looking at it!
On the brighter side, ski resorts all across the Northern and Western US are apparently enjoying a booming trade. I suppose that's some compensation - provided your customers are sufficiently skilled to take advantage of the conditions.
Unfortunately, not all of them appear to be sufficiently skilled . . .
