This time of the year, every year, I ask how Spring sales are going in your area. Here in S.E. Texas our sales boom generally starts around March 1st. and fizzles out way before those of you further North get into your heavy sales. This year is no different. I noted on the mid-day news today that it is still snowing up North yet down here we are looking at a high of 87F today and we still need rain terribly. Two of the last three years have shown us in dire drought conditions and the future forcast is not good. Folks here don't buy for their yards when the prospect of drought and water restrictions are looming on the horizon. So how goes it in your area?
Send me an envelope and I'll send you all the snow you want! You can melt it down and use it to water! Sales are still very slow. People can't get into the mood when they have to shovel the driveway and can't even see their lawn. Sales usually pich up around April 1st to 10th
Funny about your "snow in a envelope" comment. When I was about 4-5 I heard the adults complain one Summer how hot it was that year so that next Winter when we had a rare cold day I confiscated a empty mayonnaise jar from the pantry, went outside and collected some cold air in the jar by threading the cap on really tight. I thought I would surprise my Mom and Dad the next Summer by presenting them the jar. I thought they could open the jar and enjoy the cold air I had trapped inside. Well, you know the conclusion. Life can be dissapointing to a 5 year old! :)
As a wholesale operation we got off to a good start but are now watering in our winter coats.LOL
Were no longer growers. Were maintainers.lol
