We had a nice trend in the first quarters since 2011. 2014 has been disappointing. Most of the poor numbers are the result of the record winter we are having. We have had the snowiest winter ever. We shattered our average temperature this winter by 10 degrees. We are still optimistic about the year. We are hearing from Buyers. They wish to view things when the snow and ice are gone (almost!). Happy Spring!!!
