Over the last few weeks, business has leveled out. After my last post, the phone has not been ringing as much and it is getting frustrating. Because the company is small, we are able to get by when things aren't going gangbusters. However, I have been hearing rumblings from others that things are slowing for them as well.
Most of the smaller contractors I fabricate for are looking for a decent summer season. The winter has been busy, but mild when compared to other winters. Upstate New York has seen low levels of snowfall this season. Philly, Washington, New York City are all getting clobbered with snow and nothing up this way, strange. The temperatures have been in the 20's and 30's, which is mild for this time of year. February is usually bitter cold.
In order to have a positive year after catching up from 2008 and 2009, we will need to have a quality air conditioning season, along with continued strength through the rest of the winter
