Mad as hell? Blame winter

Chances are, even if you tried to get away from the cold and snow, you had problems at the airport with flight cancelations, delays or reroutes. Then, when you got there, it rained or was darn cold.

This type of weather is good for Vermont's skiing interests, as it has not been wickedly cold for more than a few days. Also, if you are getting paid by the hour or overtime for plowing, you are tired, but you are at least paying your bills.

Online shopping is likely doing well, while local retailers are probably being negatively impacted by cold and frequent snow, unless you own an outerwear/winter gear store, or a car wash.

The frequent applications of salt and plowing operations will likely have many cities, townships, counties and states struggling with budget issues and contemplating raising taxes come spring to compensate for the lack of funds.
