Summer isn’t technically over yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start preparing for winter already. Early slip and fall expert prevention and planning can ensure that you are not going to end up with any big legal or practical issues.
As snow experts at Jeremy Swenson consulting, we’ve seen far too many people unprepared for winter weather. This leads to slip and fall accidents, legal troubles, or not being able to get the equipment you need. Slip and fall expert prevention and planning can help you avoid this, so it’s never too early to look ahead.
Here’s what to expect for Winter 2022-2023 and how to prepare.
Weather Predictions for Winter 2022-23
It’s impossible, of course, to predict the weather with 100% accuracy. But meteorologists and weather experts can make educated predictions that help us prepare. Each year, the Farmer’s Almanac releases a winter weather forecast for the USA. Here are some predictions for the 2022-2023 winter season you need to be prepared for:
- December 2022 will be stormy and cold nationwide, with the first colds of winter starting earlier than last year
- Significant snowfall is expected in the first week of January, potentially reaching as far south as Texas and Oklahoma
- Heavy rain and snow will continue into later January as well
- Temperature will be colder than in the last several years, with some regions like the North Central region, where it could get to 40 degrees below zero
These predictions mean one simple thing: be prepared for cold and snow!
How to Prepare Like a Snow Expert
With lots of cold and snow coming in winter 2022-2023, it’s time to do some serious slip and fall expert prevention and planning. We’ve talked about how to do this a few times already—check out our articles on how to winterize your property and slip and fall expert prevention.
So here we’re going to focus in on one important part of your slip and fall expert prevention and planning: getting a high-quality snowblower. An effective and efficient snowblower makes it so much easier to clear sidewalks and driveways, keeping people safe.
Snowblowers Direct has an excellent guide to purchasing a snowblower. Here’s what you need to know:
- Snowblowers can be electric or gas-powered. The former is lightweight and can be used on a deck or steps, but aren’t as high-quality and long-lasting as gas blowers.
- Snowblowers come in different sizes, referred to as single-stage, two-stage, and three-stage. The differences are in how deep of snow they can effectively plow.
There are many options on the market. Some popular brands to look for are Toro, Cub Cadet, Ego Power+, Ariens, Snow Joe, and Troy-Bilt. You can find snowblowers at any hardware store or online retailer.
Remember—don’t wait until the snow falls before you get prepared. Snowblowers and other supplies may run out, so do your research and pick something out now.
