Planning Ahead

Yesterday, the Atlanta area received a winter coating of about 2 inches of snow. The snow and ice set the whole area into a grinding halt of slippery gridlocked madness, including abandoned and crashed vehicles everywhere on main roads and back roads alike.  Many people were on the road in their vehicle when the bad road conditions became very real and some people ended up taking 4-8 hours or more to reach their destination, even if it was only a few miles away. Though the forecast did not even predict snow in the area, people could have been more prepared for the chance of snow and the outcome might not have been the same.  This snowy event goes to show that advance preparation is a wise thing to become familiar with.  People will not know the exact details of a winter weather advisory ahead of time but they can be ready by what they choose to do in advance, such as stocking up on supplies and preparing their environment. One of the things a person can do to be ready is to have a secure, dry place for storage.  In the Northern states, people expect to see snowfall during winter.  The accumulation of snow on a structure can add thousands of pounds of weight to the roof.  Wouldn’t you want to have a roof that you can rely on?  It just makes sense to have the right structure for the environment, one that will withstand the weather.  To be ready before the weather gets bad includes having a metal carport or steel garage that is built to handle severe weather conditions. When we plan ahead, we can be happier with the outcome and although no one can predict exactly what will happen in advance, showing forethought is just plain smart.
