I’ve ordered all my gifts online this year. Sub zero weather, high winds, and storms in the West made outside shopping impossible. On line was much more convenient at this time. Besides, I can’t find what I purchased locally.

I bet after the Holidays the weather and many other excuses will be used to explain the lower 2013 Holiday Sales. Has anyone stated yet that Holiday sales in 2013 have outpaced 2012? Oh one more excuse people were to busy and tied up in ordering health insurance through the ACA website to get their shopping done…and the beat goes on…

I don’t believe a snow storm would cause people to not buy gifts for their family members. The worst it would do it have them buy them a few days later. I personally don’t buy gifts until a week before the holidays, whether it’s snowing or not.
