Should I Have A Private Weather Service?
As a former landscaper and plow truck driver, I was so frustrated waiting for those first flakes to fall. You know how it is, wake-up, check for snow, *try* to sleep, then wake up again, check for snow falling, look at radar, back to sleep...man, it was a vicious and stressful cycle! I NEVER wanted to miss when it started snowing, because I knew if everything was covered without my knowledge, I was bound to receive an angry call from my client or boss...then scrambling to mobilize. On the other hand, I NEVER wanted to be too early either, as I would waste precious man-hours and money with my guys just standing around playing with their phones.
This stress is one problem a private weather service can solve for you. A product like Storm Alerts, will save you time and money simply by the "heads-up" notifications. Our heads-ups are quick texts or calls from your meteorologist 1 - 2 hours in advance of snow arriving. Think of that, our meteorologists will be your wake-up call and you can get much needed sleep ahead of that grueling 24+ hour shift. We'll even contact you for those rogue snow squalls that cover you in the middle of the night! Plus, you'll have a forecast tailored for your area, that not only includes start/end times and total snowfall confidence, but also points out things like the potential for 1 inch per hour rates, quick pavement coverage, and the risk temperatures fall below 20°F (just to name a few). All factors to consider when planning snow removal operations. And if you're still uncertain about how you will tackle the storm? Give us a call. We have meteorologists staffed 24/7 and 365 days a year to answer your weather questions. How great is that?
