Over the next few months, several trade shows will get underway and will confront new issues affecting the industry.
February is one of those months when I really like my job. Outside my office window, about 7 inches of snow currently cover the ground. Those of you who aren't used to snow may find it romantic or beautiful, but the fluffy white powder quickly turns to ugly gray slush as city and county road crews clear the freeways.
That's why I'm glad my job as Snips editor allows me to travel during the coldest months of the year, usually to warm-weather locales such as Texas and California. This month, I'll be in Orlando, Fla., again. I was just there in January for the International Builders Show, and this time I'm attending the AHR Expo and the International Roofing Expo, formerly the National Roofing Contractors Association's annual trade show.
