Cape Cod, while enjoying moderate climate, also experiences some extreme weather conditions such as blizzards. Last month, the climate definitely posed some chilling fears across this area:
Across Cape Cod and the Islands the system is close enough to be bringing snow and wind and prompting blizzard warnings to be issued. A blizzard is issued when visibility is going to be less than one quarter mile for three hours or longer. The reason for the low visibility must from falling or blowing snow with winds of at least 35 miles per hour.
As of this morning, several towns across Cape Cod have reported blizzard continues and the warning remains until 2PM. The highest snow totals are going to be over the southern elbow of the Cape perhaps even in Chatham itself.
With conditions such as this, it is necessary to prepare your home for the worst, particularly with your windows. Glass, however, is a fragile material and requires expert handling. Now that Cape Cod is experiencing some sunny weather, it would be best to talk to Cape Cod MA window companies to ensure that your windows are in perfect shape for the rest of the year.
