It is time to prepare: Winter is coming, and with it, the unpredictability of cold and icy weather. This year, the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) is forecasting a La Niña winter for the Upper Midwestern portion of the country, which includes Fridley, MN. In a word, a La Niña winter means snow—lots and lots of snow. Snow, of course, is beautiful, fun, and hushing as it freely falls and settles heavily on outstretched branches of Minnesota’s majestic green pine trees. The contrasting colors make for a great postcard, but they also can be a recipe for disaster. And when disaster strikes, you’re going to need a disaster restoration team available immediately, and we are ready and waiting.
Along with all the snow that a La Niña winter may bring to Fridley, MN, may also come unpredictable temperatures as these are associated with La Niña winters. This could mean that all that beautiful, but heavy, snow could melt just as easily and quickly as it fell, creating flash flooding. Flash flooding can result in waterfalls in your basements and rivers in your crawl spaces; in other words, a disaster! Heavy wet snows are notorious for collapsing roofs and exposing structural weaknesses and leaks. We all remember when the Minneapolis Metrodome roof collapsed after the city received 18 inches of snow in 24 hours. That was a sight to remember! However, what is not on video are all the other local roofs on homes and business that also collapsed. Interestingly, the Metrodome Roof collapsed in 2010, which was also a La Niña winter. Yes, winter is surely coming.
