Below are just a few examples of how we've helped our customers deal with the weather recently...
"Not Exactly Chamber of Commerce Weather"
A customer recently had a ribbon cutting cermony scheduled for a
particular day. More than 7 days ahead of time we warned them that
rain was likely - possibly heavy. A few days later, with our
forecasts continuing to indicated the potential for a washout, they
decided to postpone the event. Over 1.5" of rain fell on the
day in question.
"They Didn't Have a Field Day with This One" A school district client had their field days scheduled over 2 particular days. We had been forecasting widespread thunderstorm activity for several days in advance of the event. As the event dates drew nearer, the district consulted with us again and ultimately decided to reschedule the events for a later date. Over 2" of rain fell over the two days in question, and frequent lightning took place as well.
"To Pour or Not to Pour - That's the Question" Pouring concrete is serious business. A client recently had to decide whether or not to proceed with a large pour that had been scheduled on a particular date. We had been forecasting 1"+ of rain for several days, and one final phone conversation confirmed that a deluge was still in the offing. The client postponed the pour - and saved over $65,000 as 1.6" of rain fell right on schedule.
"Sometimes the Best Advice is to Do Nothing At All" Hospitals have many considerations to make when it comes to severe weather preparation. One such client was recently placed under a "Tornado Watch" by the National Weather Service. Only one problem: there was no threat of a tornado in their area anytime during the valid period of the watch. We issued an advisory explaining that they were not in an area favored for tornado development. As a result, they decided to stand down and not execute their pre-disaster preparedness plans. Not even one drop of rain fell at their location during the duration of the government issued watch. The client estimates that the decision "not to act" saved them over $12,000 in additional salary cost and prevented the unnecessary alarm of hundreds of patients and their families.
