Issaquah, WA (PRWEB) January 27, 2012
January in the Seattle area brought below normal temperatures, cloudy skies, rain, snow, freezing rain and high winds after what was a relatively mild December.
“The snow storm in late January forced us to pull together all our resources to stay open so we could service our customers without interruption,” said Scott Hanna, CEO at QuickMedical. “During our five days of power outages, our shipping, warehouse, sales and customer service staff went well beyond the call of duty by traveling through the snow to ensure that all of our customers would have the products and service they have come to expect from us.”
An arctic front moved into the Seattle area around January 15 that changed the rain to snow with amounts accumulating to around 3-9 inches. Another devastating snow and ice storm hit the area again on January 19 downing trees, power lines and cutting off power to more than 300,000 homes and businesses.
“Living in the Pacific Northwest, we must be proactive during the winter months to anticipate these rare yet severe winter storms,” said Loren Timmons, Marketing Director at QuickMedical. “QuickMedical anticipated such weather events by installing electrical generators and other support equipment designed to keep the facility up and running through most weather conditions; our staff plans for it and our customers expect it.”
Unlike most storms over the Midwest and East, which drop their load of snow in a matter of hours, storms in the Northwest often last days. In many cases, the biggest snowfalls in Seattle and the Cascades are a series of storms one right after the other.
The largest snow fall in Seattle was documented between January 31 and February 3, 1916 with a total accumulation of 33.4 inches. January 1969 was the second worst on record with an accumulation of over 30.7 inches.
