Our American partner “Parish Conservatories” to whom we have supplied dozens of conservatories over the past 7 years has been in the eye of the storm. They operate their business from a small industrial unit in Connecticut and the roof has been blown clean off.
We were only today loading components into a container to ship out to them when we heard the news. We might complain about how the weather has disrupted business this year, delaying building works and losing fitting days. However we have nothing to complain about compared to them. Even in a normal year they regularly have several feet of snow with the ground frozen for months. We complain about our weather, but we do have a lot to be grateful for.
