After a long and dry December we finally received a snow fall around three inches. January 8th was bitterly cold with a wind chill around -30. The crews fought through it and managed to get the route finished in a timely manner.
Most snow events are a “schedule on the fly” situation. Meaning, there are certain factors that play a part in what properties take precedent. Factors such as:
- Business Hours
- Call from property
- Time of Snow Fall
- Employee Punctuality
Communication is a big player when attempting to service as many properties as we have. The number of properties we have may not seem significant, but the ratio – Equipment to Property is significant. It really does not matter how many properties you have, being serviceable should consume you as an owner/operations manager.
Hats off to the crews for toughing this one out! With no snow in sight for all of next week, back to working on lawn care service agreements.
