Retailing is weak because of it.
I once had a tackle shop in Orleans tell me not go to to Nauset because the water was too warm, but instead go to Race Point. It must have been a contest to get as much junk science into one sentence as possible. (For those that don't know, Nauset never gets above 65 degrees and RP is probably 10 degrees warmer than Nauset on the outgoing tide...)
