While this week may have been business as usual for many of our nationwide customers, that wasn't the case for everyone. Being based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, we were in the middle of Storm Cleon as she passed through and reaked havoc on the area and many other states.
The sleet began to fall on Thursday and continued into Friday bringing most commerce to a screaching hault. Many of our customers were not able to open or had to make decisions to close early and most trucking companies shuttered their operations. Over 250,000 people and businesses lost power and roads were closed or blocked. For the first time in 26 years, the Children's Hospital Parade was cancelled, over 1,000 flights were postponed and after much debate, the Dallas Marathon had to be called off.
As the storm moves toward the Ohio River Valley, many more states will be impacted. While we never wish for these dangerous events, we recognize that such occurences are inevitable and out of our control. What we can control is how we react. We understand the impact this leaves on our customers when assembly lines have to shut down, shipments can't move, deadlines are missed, it can leave everyone in a bind and trying to catch up. That's where we are here to help.
