Perfect Snow Storm Impacting Millions

OPM

As a child snow was the perfect storm for play, purpose and planning. As an adult snow can still be the perfect storm with larger implications on travel, power, work, safety and economy. Today’s storm effecting millions from the Midwest to Eastern sea board has produced large snow, power outages and dangerous roads with impending drops in temperature leading to ice. The “Mid-Atlantic braces for late-winter storm that could bring up to a foot of snow” effecting millions today.

The accumulation of snow days has cities in salt deficits.  There is a net-net effect to snow and poor weather conditions. This alone prevents today’s salting as a critical path plan to identify what are the most significant roads to clear. Further, the rush for snow bounders to stockpile foods depleting shelves and produces  a demand on stores to restock from warehouses while considering poor road conditions. The act of weather creates a threat to infrastructural safety and is an optimal time to evaluate system efficiency and sustainability.

“Snow began falling in the nation’s capital early Monday, and officials warned people to stay off treacherous, icy roads. The latest frigid blow of the harsh winter threatened as much as 10 inches of snow by the end of the day in Washington, Baltimore and elsewhere in the Mid-Atlantic region. Up to 6 inches of snow was predicted to the north in Philadelphia, while nearly a foot of snow was expected in parts of New Jersey,” reports Fox News.

Consider the nation’s capital “U.S. Office of Personnel Management, which sets leave policies for 300,000 federal workers in the region, says non-emergency personnel are granted excused absences for the day. School systems in Baltimore, Washington and many suburban areas were closed, as were all Smithsonian museums except for the National Air and Space Museum.”

Today, due to snow schools and city services are closed around the nation. The impact of weather is an opportunity to manage threat level changes and diagnose actions to maintain operations. Today, there is snow, tomorrow rain, hurricanes, tornadoes and floods but there is always planning for sustainable outcomes.
