Not everyone is upset over dry summer
WAUKESHA - While this drought is no fun for some people, it's a blessing for others.
It was the 5th warmest june on record, and without the rain to worry about, sales soared at Skipper Bud's.
"The summer's been great, we're up 35%, we can't keep everything in stock," Skipper Bud's president Mike Pretasky, Jr. said. "It got people very excited anywhere from accessories to boats to repairs, everything is busy."
Last year one of their marinas pumped 20,000 gallons of gas all summer, they are almost at that point now.
This weather was more than welcome at Don and Roy's Motorsports, it was needed. Owner Bob VanZelst said in February the mild winter left most of their snowmobiles on the showroom floor.
"We'd rather just see an early spring and get the bikes going at this point, this is just kind of dragging out," said Bob VanZelst, owner of Don & Roy's Motorsports. "We started out real strong in March and that got everybody excited and the cabin fever came out early and it's continued all the way into the summer."
And the dry weather has provided perfect conditions for motorcyclists.
"You don't have to worry about getting sprinkled on," said VanZelst. "The best part is you can go out and play with this stuff and not worry about doing your yardwork cuz there's nothing there to do."
And as the drought rolls on, more boats, motorcycles and scooters are sure to roll out the doors as well.
