While businesses that rely on a snowy winter are hurting right now, a dry winter isn't always bad news.
Just ask home construction crews around the region.
February is typically one of the least productive months for home construction. So bad that construction crews typically add in a few extra days to compensate for the snowy and cold weather.
Peter Fields, owner of Fields Construction Company in Roanoke, says this year it has allowed the company to get ahead of schedule on several projects.
Fields admits, "construction is a month ahead of schedule," talking about the large project of new builds in Roanoke's Old Southwest Community.
