Some people love snow! A lot of people really hate snow! Every year millions of people move south to get away from the snow, but then they travel north to play in the snow. And no one can make the snow go away, unless they have a snow shovel or a plow.
A Snow Expert is a Valuable Asset When Wintry Weather Possibly Contributes to an Accident
Weather of all kinds impacts our daily lives, but snow and ice are probably the weather conditions most likely to cause accidents. Over 25% of car accidents happen due to ice or snow, and over a half million people are injured every year in accidents directly attributable to winter weather conditions. When accidents happen, a lot of people get involved and often the assistance of a winter weather expert is required to figure out the cause and effect for legal reasons.
