It’s funny how people look at weather differently.
I know farmers already look at rain we might get now as much needed moisture for next year. Every bit helps. Although rain isn’t a bad thing, when we get it, the first thing I think of is what a pain in the rear end it’s going to be letting my dog in the house. Every time he comes in from outside in this wet weather I have to wipe all of the mud and wet leaves from his paws. I never get it all, so it seems like I’ve got the vacuum out and running every couple of days trying to keep our carpet dirt free.
Harlan Sanders, better known as “Colonel Sanders” had a great quote. He said, “There is no such thing as bad weather, just different types of good weather.” How right he was.
Personally, I hate the winter weather. However, many businesses rely on a snowy winter to keep food on their tables and bills paid. It’s been a tough couple of winters for those businesses. The same thing goes for businesses that rely on a hot sunny summer to sell their wares. That’s the problem with seasonal businesses. If you sell winter gear, you’re not going to make up for a bad winter by selling your product over the course of a long hot summer and vice versa.
If you sell rain gear, you might just enjoy a busier day than normal today.
Me? I’ll just keep thinking about my dogs feet and pulling the vacuum cleaner up from the basement again later today.
