For landscaping, property management, and lawn care companies as well as independent contractors, as autumn fades and winter looms, thoughts turn to ramping up their snow removal operations. But there’s a catch: winter is unpredictable. There’s no surefire way to know if the cold weather will consistently deliver heavy snowfalls.
According to the Farmers’ Almanac, the Canadian winter in 2021-22 will be a “yo-yo type of winter with notable polar coaster swings in temperature”. A normal amount of snow in each province is expected, although there will be significant monthly fluctuations across the country. We’ll see our share of major snowstorms and it’s going to get downright frigid at times – no big surprises there.
For snow removal companies, now’s the time to plan and be ready for whatever comes our way from November to May.
