"Oh, The Weather Outside is Frightful..."

By The PEiR Group

Tough winter weather conditions made life miserable for delivery people and shop owners this week as a pre-Christmas blitz of icy cold and snow blasted the Northwest, Midwest, and north-eastern portions of the nation.

A blustery winter storm front left a trail of slickened roads, darkened power grids and downed trees as it moved from Seattle into Maine.

Reprographers in the affected area kept generators close at hand, cautioned their drivers to be extra careful while on the road and did everything they could to make it “business as usual” for their customers. Two feet of snow fell in the Northwest, with Boston seeing similar amounts and a second front bringing more snow early this week.

Hard-hit towns from Ohio to Michigan took unusual steps to keep their roads open, in one case using a donated shipment of garlic salt donated by a local pizza manufacturer to extend dwindling reserves of road salt.

Apparently, the “garlic combo,” worked just fine.

If your shop was affected by this sub-zero cold snap, drop in a “comment” below and tell us how you fared.
