In case you need further proof that this past winter has been a long and arduous one, here’s a weather report from the Akron Beacon Journal:
The number tells the story of a winter that will not end.
And that number, 69.5, is no April Fools’ Day joke.
It represents how many inches of snow had been measured at the National Weather Service office at Akron-Canton Airport through the end of March.
That is the most snowfall since the winter of 1977-78, when a record-setting 82 inches fell.
A total of 10.2 inches of snow was measured in March, making this the sixth snowiest winter season.
That standing could change if there are snowstorms in April. According to the National Weather Service, no snow is forecast over the next several days, but a blast this month would not be totally unexpected.
With the cold season extending well into spring (so much for its having been officially announced), it’s hard to get into the spirit of the new season. It’s one thing for the weather to be colder than usual, but another thing entirely when you’ve still got powder falling in the middle of April. But since you can’t exactly tell Mother Nature what to do, the only remaining choice is to wait the weather out. And to make sure you and your Akron home will last through whatever kind of weather we get, you’re going to have to make sure that your roof is up to the task. This is where Akron roofers come in.
Your roof receives most of the damage your property gets from the elements, so it makes sense to make its care a priority when you’re doing routine repair and maintenance work. D&M Roofing understands all of your Akron roofing needs because the company has had more than a thousand successful installations under its belt and is itself part of the local community.
