Yes, as tough as this year is Two years ago was much worse IIRC. Not even a patch of snow....nothing. I also remember things came in pretty strong from February on. I sure do hope that happens again this year, If not it's going to be an awfully short spring.
I keep telling myself its got to come, I've been saying this since midwinter last year....and each two week window keeps busting leaving things dry. It's really quite remarkable if you think about it, talk about persistent. The areas without major snowmaking in the area got to be hurting along with businesses.
