Record-breaking Weather in Ontario

Last week the Toronto weather broke all existing records for February with an 18 degree Celsius high recorded in downtown Toronto. Pearson measured 17.7 degrees. More to the point, I saw people in sandals, t-shirts and eating take-out lunches. I bet quite a few people ditched work in the afternoon!

Friday, the ski resort I usually go to sent an email with a cut'n'paste weather forecast for this week and the headline that there is still good skiing. But, while that may be true, weather like we had Thursday, or the rain and mild temperatures on Friday have melted pretty much all the snow and seems to re-set our minds to summer.

Will Canada enjoy another hot sunny summer in 2017? Weather like this is certainly a boost for the boat business and with people thinking about summer, this week would be a great time to send your customers a "Spring Thaw" email to get them thinking about their boats. Carpe diem!
