What Property Managers Need to Know

  • Very light snow through the day required a few visits during the day for retail and 24/7 properties.
  • Full plow completed Sunday night if trigger was reached.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!

Good afternoon!

This is a little early to call, but Winter Event #5 is looking quite possible for Sunday night into Monday morning. Temperatures will be VERY cold so any tiny amount of moisture could result in snow accumulating.

There is plenty of time for this to change path or reduce/increase accumulations.

What Property Managers need to know

  • This snow look like it could begin overnight Sunday and fall through the day Monday. This could cause issues like we had earlier this week with triggers being hit right when folks are coming to work. Joy.

Have  a great weekend!!
