If you made it through Memorial Day weekend unscathed, the rest of the summer should be a breeze. With the horrible weather, road construction and tourists who had little to do, it is just a good reminder of what we can expect for the weeks ahead. I actually heard one local comment that there are 13 more weeks until Labor Day. I personally do not want to rush the season, I just hope it’s peaceful and lucrative for all the business owners, including myself.
