Numbers Grow In Search Of A Safe Haven Across The East End
"This is my fourth winter with Maureen's Haven, and I think this winter has been the biggest challenge. We thought last winter was the biggest challenge when the numbers jumped up initially in the first couple of weeks because of a cold snap in November. Then the numbers shot up and hit highs of 62 in January and February. Now we're talking highs of 82 a night already in January."
