Expect the Unexpected

Here in the Northeast, winter is finally winding down. As far as winters go, this one has been a heavy-hitter. We were slammed with four nor’easters in as many weeks - two of them happening within the span of five days. 

As of April 2nd, the total snowfall for the season as recorded in New York City’s Central Park was 40.9 inches. Last Friday snow flurries were floating by the office window and we were all crossing our fingers hoping that it would be the last we would see of snow for the season. Unfortunately, you can never be sure what the weather has planned in April. Snow showers, rainstorms, heavy wind, temperatures of 65 degrees: it’s all possible, and it could happen within a single day. Spring is at best, unpredictable and at worst, temperamental. At Veoci, our mentality is: Be prepared. Always. While getting ready for harsh snow and ice in the winter is second nature, you might be less apt to prepare for spring weather. According to the CDC, thunderstorms are the major weather phenomenon to look out for during the spring months. Particularly nasty storms can bring tornadoes and flooding. Being caught unprepared can increase the toll of severe weather.  For individuals and families, the CDC recommends a keeping an emergency kit on hand. For companies, however, there are more moving parts. Veoci is designed to keep your organization's business continuity plans (BCP) streamlined, up-to-date, and easy to activate. With Veoci, you'll always be one step ahead of the unpredictable spring weather.
