Surviving the Polar Vortex…. Steve the Window Guy Style.

Wowza. What a few weeks! If you are like most Minnesotans (especially those with kids at home) you have experienced the following emotions over the last few weeks:

  • The inability to get warm.

  • The thrill of a snow day, followed by the dread of the 3rd snow day in a row

  • That claustrophobic feeling of being trapped in your home but knowing it is too cold to go anywhere. Made infinitely worse when your appointment schedule clears and your whole family is just in the house staring at each other.

  • Feeling like you’re supposed to be doing something but not being able to do anything.

  • Running out of the essential groceries and not caring enough to drive to the store to get more.

Of course, as a window replacement company we had different things happen to, like we started fielding calls about cancelled appointments, cancelled installs, stress cracks in windows caused by insanely cold temperatures and 70 degree temperature swings, and concerns about indoor humidity showing itself on glass.

Aside from all of that our last few weeks have been fairly normal. Our new radio campaign on KS95 started, our Billboard is up in Downtown Minnneapolis, we had a great show at US Bank Stadium, and our office is moving forward on all the important stuff that keeps us moving. We remain, as always, committed to our customers.
