Snow Storm Preparation

Dear Val­ued Land­forms Clients:

We are going to have another storm impact our area this morn­ing. This storm will be fueled by mois­ture from the south com­bined with a rein­forc­ing push of arc­tic air. The tem­per­a­tures will be ris­ing for most of the day into the mid to upper thir­ties. Unfor­tu­nately not until after the snow starts. The storm is pre­dicted to reach us early this morn­ing with a com­bi­na­tion of snow, sleet and freez­ing rain. Even­tu­ally turn­ing over to all rain. How­ever snow and sleet accu­mu­la­tions are fore­casted to be between 1 and 2”. With ice accu­mu­la­tion of up to .2”. Our goal for today is to keep the snow, sleet and ice from pil­ing up and to keep every­thing open and safe until the rain comes. After the rain stops the tem­per­a­ture will drop cre­at­ing a icy con­di­tion on the back side of the storm. Tem­per­a­tures will fall back to the low twen­ties. Our plan is to pre salt all loca­tions so they do not become a skat­ing rink or slush pile dur­ing the morn­ing com­mute. We will then be on site to remove accu­mu­la­tion if it starts to build up. After the tem­per­a­tures drop we will apply another appli­ca­tion of deicer to pre­vent every­thing from turn­ing to ice over night. Please make your ten­ants aware that all of the sites have been ser­viced before they have arrived and that we will be com­bat­ing the storm as it changes through­out the day. Return­ing at night to clean up every­thing for Wednes­day morn­ing. Thank you for choos­ing Land­forms as your snow removal provider.

WEATHER UPDATE (3/3/2015 3:00 PM):

The snow has now all switched over to rain and freez­ing rain. We have cleared all side­walks at least once and are re-clearing them again. When they are being cleared we are apply­ing a heavy coat of deicer. We are going extra heavy because the rain is wash­ing a lot of the prod­uct away. The ground tem­per­a­tures are very cold so if the deicer gets washed off, the rain is start­ing to freeze on con­tact. We will be re-applying and clear­ing until the pre­cip­i­ta­tion stops. We will be com­ing back out tonight after the traf­fic emp­ties out to plow, shovel and address any areas that were inac­ces­si­ble ear­lier in the day. Please be care­ful on your way home tonight, the roads are get­ting bad. Thank you for choos­ing Land­forms as your snow removal provider.
