No not really except if it's over 6" or so. The 1st storm is always the worst as people have to get used to driving in it.
It makes me want to schedule our ski trip to Utah. A
no, this is new england.... most have SUV's with 4 wheel drive....we go through anything....
If it snowed out here, we'd have to declare a state of emergency!
Depends on if it is 2 inches or 2 feet
Snow, what's that?
Not since 1989.
It doesn't come before December or January and yes it slows things down some but it is also hard to say if it is the holidays or the after holiday blues and bills.
If it's just a few inches of snow it won't make any difference. Now a foot of snow tends to slow things down.
1 inch will cause devastation here
Only if it's more than six inches deep. The federal government shuts down, but I don't1
No worries here. Although there are people in the area who can't wait to travel to the slopes for skiing and snowboarding. It's one of the appeals to living in So Cal with winter stuff not all that far away
At soon as it starts to snow the entire DC/Northern VA area goes into a tailspin. It can take people 7 hours to go 20 miles. 7. Hours. I'm not kidding.
Not unless it's a foot or more. LOL
Sure would love a little frozen wet stuff here in sunny So Cal but not happening. Not even the wet non-frozen stuff. If it did you betcha it would affect my business in a good way. I'd be the one jumping up and down and not getting anything done. Okay...back to reality! I was thinking out loud again.
Thank goodness! We don't have to worry about snow in San Antonio.
No it is an every year thing.
Not really and we have little snow in Oklahoma City.
not usually, it's the second and third one that slows things down
Not usually, but it depends on how much snow, and if they pre-treated the roads.
Here on Kauai if we ever had snow I am SURE none of us would be working, we'd be out experience the never-in-our-lifetime event!
It shuts us down!
Will Hamm Traffic usually comes to a stand still.
Yes...and I am in Florida. It is the stimulus that brings snowbirds!
It's more the black ice that creates dangerous road conditions.
Now that would be a miracle in Naples, Florida!
Yes. The first snow in town usually delays school which can impact agents getting to work and home showings. But it also triggers winter tourism which creates opportunities to meet potential buyers.
Yes as it takes the first one to get acclimated to driving with the white stuff!
I bet it would if it did - I'm in Florida LOL
The local municipalities here in the Greater Danbury, Connecticut area are well prepared for the snow. They take to the roads through the night, well equipped with plows, sand or salt & the roads are usually passable by early morning... for most storms. Sometimes it will snow all day & then everything shuts down & I will get showing cancellations.
We had a trace of rain earlier this week and it had an impact on traffic - I can't imagine what would happen if there was snow in the Los Angeles area.
not much...it's the later snows that are heavier and stick that slow down business.
I can not believe you guys have the first snow. We are still in 90F days weather.
Yes, it drives the snowbirds to us!
Snow in our area does impact business.
I think it would, because if it snowed on Coastal San Diego, we'd all be a little distracted! Never too busy for your San Diego bound referrals!
I have not seen snow in my area for maybe 40 years. No, it does not effect my business.
A dusting, no; a foot, Maybe; two feet, YES!
Not unless it is a blizzard and then only a day or 2. Ice slows down business greater.
Don't know. Just moved back to Chicago after 26 years in Florida. While in Florida, phone calls picked up after big snow storms!
No, not one prior to JAN.
Good day Will,
We do not see snow here in Florida. The only snow I see is at a park in Orlando during the holidays and is fake:(
Depends. If bad enough not only will it effect business it could shut down the city.
I just wish it would snow here
It depends on the severity of the snow and cleanup and the nature of the business being transacted at the time of the snow.
It affects us even before it snows as everything starts shutting down.
Will Hamm - the first one may not. Recurrence of it, yes!
Depends on the projects we are working on, if very remote in the mountains it generally will shut us down for a while.
Saw snow ferries once since 1970s. It melts in about 5 minutes.... Over the years it gets warmer each year and I can tell global warming contributes to the cause.
We would rejoice if we got snow as well as play in it too. Please snow
