#TBT The Hurricane that Wasn't

Last weekend, we all braced ourselves for the impact of Hermine—an impact that turned out to be, well, beautiful skies and incredible weather here in New York! Before it hit, I was invited to Fox News to discuss the potential economic impact the storm would have on Labor Day Weekend. As it’s often a weekend filled with outdoor activities, back-to-school shopping, and general spending, being trapped inside during possibly dangerous weather could detract from those purchases. On the flip side, in regions around Florida, companies like Home Depot and grocery stores would experience a boom of spending by people looking to batten down the hatches.
