In our local market, the small smaple size can lead to some skewed figures.  We saw April slow in Vilas County but jump ahead in Oneida County.

We believe the cold and snow were major contributors to the soft sales during April.  Last year we had an early ice-out and nicer temperatures, but this year we were still snowshoeing!
