      Not looking too good when you have some people complaining that some areas are ghost towns. Many will be staying away just because they wish to avoid the crowds and the fact they are not going to change anything isn't great.

      Obviously I feel for the shop owners who've had their hopes set on this super-busy two weeks to give them a boost.
