We Dodged A Bullet

It looks like we dodged a bullet with respect to this winter storm, January 19 & 20, 2019. This particular winter event has changed and morphed many times in just the last 24 hours. Looks like now much of our area will be spared the heaviest snow and many of us see a long period of rain. Icing will be a concern as ice can bring down branches and power lines.

Ice does, however, encapsulate branches and plant material which protects them from extreme cold and wind, both of which can be damaging to plant material. With respect to wet heavy snow, you can look back to my blog, Heavy Snow Can Damage Plants March 10, 2018.

Snow Is Getting Closer to Home

This past week, many locations in Bergen county hit or exceeded 80° in temperature. Today, temperatures will struggle to reach 60°. Tomorrow morning’s lows will be about 47°. The Catskills meteorologically speaking, are just a stone’s throw away, to our north, and will probably see wet snow tomorrow morning.

So why the weather report? Because, it is mid October and the weather only gets colder from this point forward. The first snow storm does not have to wait until December or January. The time to prepare for winter’s worst snow and ice events is now before they occur.

Snow Today

Snow today, that is, if you live in Minnesota. Some people are waking up today to snow. It won’t be very long before Bergen county residents will be waking up to snow as well. Soon we will all be paying more attention to weather forecasts as the possibility of snowfall is not that far away.

Recent temperatures have been averaging 5-10°F above normal so far this fall season. This has allowed for most folks to leave the sweater behind. But don’t be fooled. Cooler weather will arrive as it always does. All it takes is temperatures of 32°F or lower which changes rain to snow.

Professional snow management contractors are and have been gearing up for the 2018-2019 snow removal season since the end of last snow season. For us, we are always thinking of snow plowing and salting operations year round. However, now is certainly the time for you to be thinking about snow and ice management for your commercial property.

30 Inches of Snow. WHAT?!?

In the last few days we have had a little over 3 inches of rain. That would be about 30 inches of snow if the temperature was below freezing. 30 inches of snow. If you are a skier your eyes have just opened up wide to the possibilities of 30 inches of fresh powdery snowfall. BUT, if you are like most of us, the thought of 30 inches of snow might just be a bit scary.
