You may not have known this, but bad weather improves our sales. There's nothing like a rainy day to keep kids in the house, and if you're a parent, you're probably looking for a distraction. As an adult, it's a great opportunity to get some painting done, provided you've already primed your miniatures. You shouldn't prime in the rain or under high humidity unless you want unusual results.
The counter to bad weather resulting in good sales are storms. If there's a storm warning in effect, customers stay home. It's a great time to clean or do paperwork, if there's electricity. The sales the next day seem to indicate people temporarily held off on their purchases.
I'm just giddy after Iowa. It's the youth vote, the vote for change over experience, the fatigue with politics as usual. Now I'm just waiting for the press to start chipping away. I was a supporter of Dean and was shocked when the press killed his campaign over his rallying the troops with his yell. It just didn't register as a problem for me. Just as the Republicans hope for a Clinton victory to rally their troops in opposition, I see Huckabee as the anti-Clinton, and an easy target to rally Democrats. I was excited for McCain in his previous campaigns, but he's gone all loopy.
