Men may have a valid excuse for not showing up with a bouquet of roses this Valentine's Day.
Florists across the country say snow and ice have foiled their busiest day of the year. And some aren't even going to bother delivering, giving up a third of the year's profits.
One hundred million people have been hit by this week's storm, putting an estimated 67-million flower orders at risk. And it's not just mom-and-pop shops.
FTD, one of the largest florists on the internet stopped taking orders yesterday. If your bouquet doesn't show up today, florists say if you don't receive a cancellation notice, expect it to be delivered tomorrow.
