Snow Business magazine: December 2016


Our December issue features our 8th Annual Snow & Ice All-Stars section. Leading the way is this month’s cover subject - Akehurst Landscape Service in Joppa, MD. Led by fifth-generation brothers John and Bill Akehurst and cousin Jay Tarleton, Akehurst is celebrating its 140th anniversary in 2016. They share how the company has evolved, how it made it through the devastating death of their snow leader, and where they hope to steer the company as it embarks on its next 140 years.
In addition to our All-Stars features, Neal Glatt, CSP, ASM, takes a humorous look at the new normal of parking lot design. Mike Rorie tackles how technology is changing the snow business and who is driving that change. Frank Lombardo of WeatherWorks provides our long-range winter forecast – buckle up, it may be a rough one! 
On behalf of the entire Snow Business team, have a safe winter. We’ll see you in February with a new look, new enewsletters and more!
