Yet another day of cancellations. Just what we need after Christmas. |
Much more of this and I'll have to consider laying-off staff.
How is everyone else coping?

we have been cancelling most of our work |
customers unable to get here its unfair to expect them to wreck there vehicles to get here
today black ice everywhere no grit or salt to be had
yard is like a sheet of glass !!!
so another quiet day

I guess it depends on where you are.Only a couple of inches of snow in S.Bucks. So working fairly much as normal. |

After 22 years doing this, I have a routine that works for me. Being mobile, I book in my first appointment for about mid-day because where I live (out in the sticks and at the bottom of a hill) I have to wait for the country road to become passable after tractors and the like have used it. I do not book in a 5 0'clock appointment to ensure I do not get caught out in plummeting temperatures. Finally, I try to prioritise my appointments, ie non-starts etc and leave the routine stuff for next week. No big problems yet, but it is daunting trying to conduct diagnostics in the snow. Worst is attending a non-start up some-ones drive, parked the "wrong-way" round with 2 other cars behind it - in 2 feet of snow! Roll on summer.

'How is everyone else coping'? |
Hi Joe, personally, I am coping by relying on my employer being solvent enough to 'weather the storm' and not resort to 'laying off staff'
we were snowed in at one point, but our firm has always said if we get to work,we get paid.
