Feeding and counting birds
A heavy mast crop last fall was one sign that led those who use old-time folk lore to predict conditions to warn that the winter of 2013-'14 would be bad. It was a good call. March blasts of arctic air make seeking out the remaining seeds, berries and nuts a matter of survival for wild birds and animals. Insect-eating creatures find food scarcer due to cold, as well.
Bad weather hurts the bottom line, but warmer weather is on the way
As a resort community, much of the revenue generated in Fairfield Glade relies on visitors. So far this year, cold weather has put quite a damper on outdoor activity. Due to the freezing temperatures and snow, January golf rounds recorded 943 18-hole equivalents – about 325 rounds under budget and 528 less than last year.

That answer is simply wrong.

My daughter –in–law insists on me getting a pedicure when I visit her in Florida. Since the plans for the week included the beach, I was in favor. Well, to be honest I would have been in favor beach or no beach.
