Let It Snow! Why Last Year’s Winter Wonderland Will Create Extra Opportunities for Contractors this Year
You would think that people living in the northern part of the U.S. would be used to long winters and lots of snow, but this past winter there really seemed to be more than usual: seven major cities in the U.S. experienced more than 100 inches of snow last year! Maybe it was the subzero temperatures that made us all think it was the worst winter we had ever experienced. Maybe it was because the media focused on the hardest-hit cities and states, making it seem as if the season would never end. For example, there was a lot of media coverage about Boston getting pummeled with snow; yet Boston wasn’t even among the top 3 cities that received the most snowfall. As well, the media rarely mentions cities like Syracuse, NY that get comparable levels of snow every winter. Why? Probably because the residents of Syracuse are used to a lot of snow and know how to handle it. It was just another winter for them!
