Ahhhhh, it's March! Daylight savings time is upon us, the days are getting longer, and with that, presumably Spring is around the corner. But if you have flipped on the news in the past 24 hours, you know what in fact is practically at our doorstep: MORE SNOW. Never fear, Spring will get here, eventually. Until then, we have to continue to tolerate this insane winter (unless you're a skier, in which case, you are LOVING this!). So, bearing that in mind, we just wanted to remind our friends and customers of a few items that you probably already know, but could stand to hear again.
- SLOW DOWN IN THE SNOW. There is no where you have to be that is worth yours, or someone else's safety. Drive according to the conditions, and do not get "over confident" with your four wheel drivin' self. How many times do we see "that guy" in a shiny new SUV in a ditch?? Too many. Don't do it.
- If it's that bad, STAY HOME. No job, no hair appointment, grocery store, etc. is worth your personal well being! Cancel your plans, hunker down, and watch some Netflix. Remember, Game of Thrones returns soon. Now is a good time to catch up!
- There is a salt shortage, BE AWARE! When on the roads, be aware that there is a salt crisis going on due to this hellacious winter we have had. Municipalities are still being supplied, but even they are being more cautious in fear of running out completely. Commercial parking lots being serviced by companies such as ours are slicker than normal due to our supply being cut off. So, slow down. Be cautious. And I love heels as much as the next girl, but for goodness sake, wear boots! It beats a cast when you go for the "big ride" and break your leg!
- Finally, whether we plow your driveway or another contractor does, please cut us some slack in storm conditions. If you wake up to three inches of snow, it doesn't mean it's been there all night and we have had the opportunity to get to you. Often times snow accumulates very quickly, and Murphy's Law states that it's usually right when you are going to work. We will get there as quickly as humanly possible, but sometimes, due to the conditions, it is later than expected. We sincerely apologize, but Mother Nature tends to be fickle like that, and we can't control the old girl!
So, don't panic! We will get thru this one just like all the others! And if there is anything you may need, you know who to call.
