The Snowfall Sentinel
We’re excited to roll out the first edition of our new Snow team newsletter, the Snowfall Sentinel this week! If this is your first winter working with us, then welcome!
Every month or so, you’ll get a text from our fun line number (603) 803-6690 with a link to one of these letters. They’ll be sent to the entire Snow Team and will come in the form of a blog post. In these letters, you can expect to read:
An update from us regarding any work updates, or anticipates storm patterns coming up
An in-depth weather update from WeatherWorks, and what will entail for upcoming work opportunities
A trivia question! We’ll have a trivia question each time, where you can reply back with your answer and you may win a prize! The prizes will be small (roughly $25 to $50 in value), and will change each (time increment)
North Atlantic Update
It’s a busy season at the North Atlantic headquarters right now! We’ve been spending the past several weeks drawing out all of the snow routes we’ll be doing, hiring the best people in the game, and getting Regional Manager’s (RM’s) set up with their workflow for the season.
Throughout the next couple of weeks, all of the Regional Managers will be calling through their lists of employees (new and old) to coordinate schedules and routes. If you haven’t heard from your RM directly yet, you can expect to hear from them in the coming weeks!
In the meantime, feel free to checkout this onboarding webpage that we’ve put together. It will give you an idea of what to expect this season, and had some great training resources!
With Thanksgiving around the corner, it’s safe to say that we probably won’t be seeing a major snow storm for at least another month. But you never know! So that being said, there’s not too much of an immediate weather update.
Although looking ahead to this winter, we could be gearing up for quite a busy season. The Old Farmer’s Almanac is predicting that we’ll see a lot of snowy weather paired with mild temperatures.
Here’s a little bit more information on what they’re saying about the Northeast:
Will There Be Snow?
Yes! Precipitation and snowfall will be above normal. The snowiest stretches occur in mid-to late November, mid-December and early to mid-January. There will be a white Christmas in the mountains, but it’s less likely in the foothills and along I-95.
We’ve already seen some teasers of winter in parts of Maine and New Hampshire, so I wouldn’t be surprised if we had to activate our team this month. So let’s stay on our toes, and stay diligent!
How Cold Will Winter Be?
Winter temperatures will be above normal. The coldest periods will occur in mid- to late November, early to mid-January, and early to mid-February
Additionally, you can check out this forecast that we got from Weatherworks. It confirms the predictions of the Farmer’s Almanac, but gives us a visual representation of where we can expect storms to fall throughout December. Looking at this chart, it appears that we’re going to have a lot of work ahead of us across the properties that we plow in Massachusetts and the New Hampshire Seacoast.
Don’t forget to check all of your bases before the first winter storm to ensure that you’ll get paid
- Have you received your email invitation to Paylocity from Alice?
- Have you successfully set up your Paylocity account?
- Do you have all of your necessary emplyment documents uploaded?
- Do you know who your supervisor is?
If you answered no for any of the above questions, or were unsure of any, please reach out to Alice at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So here’s how our trivia questions will work—
We’ll pose a trivia question to you with every newsletter, and the first person to respond back with the correct answer will win a prize! It’s super straightforward.
While most of these trivia questions will be things that you can look up on your computer or phone, we ask that you guess! Even though we can’t verify either way 🤷
