As many of you may know, the east coast will be expecting some heavy rain, winds and snow in the next couple of days. This includes a blizzard right on our main network operations center and headquarters. Please also consider that you may be impacted by this in a couple of ways:
1. Weather at your home could impair your connectivity (strong winds, snow buildup on dish, thick cloud cover)
2. Weather at the network operations center or gateway that provide signal to your home
In addition, technicians in the way of these storms may not be able to safely get to your home and may need to reschedule appointments, so please be mindful of that.
Essentially, if you can wait the snow out on the dish to melt that is a great way to go. If you cannot, lightly brush off the snow and if your dish is not mounted to a pole, be very careful climbing ladders!
Stay safe and warm this weekend everyone !
You haven't lived until you've seen "lake effect" snow coming ashore across Lake Michigan. Getting 18" overnight right along shoreline is common along with 50-60 mph winds.
Its a lot like looking into the south end of a polar bear facing north.
