Is Your Work Affected By Weather?

Just curious. I see two dimensions: weather affects or does not affect your ability to do work, and weather affects or does not affect customers' ability/desire to use your company.

My business is not affected at all. If there's a big snowstorm nearly all of my employees have laptops and can work from home, and our clients don't slow down in rain or snow. We're pretty weather-independent in the market research industry.

Weather nice and bad affects our customer flow, and bad affects our ability to work somewhat.

I could not believe it when I saw this Question.

I teach and am a weather nut.

This is what I wrote in a weather forum a few years ago.

Quote:
I am working on this theory that changes in barometer changes student behavior.

The last day and a half have been bad. Brick wall

The kids started getting restless and unfocused about 11:00 yesterday. So I looked at the barometer (or as I call it- the student behavior meter Laughing) and sure enough it had started to drop. By 1pm, it was dropping rapidly and my students were losing focus fast. I walked into the hall and it was madness. Very loud, kids running and a buzz about the building. Another teacher walked by and said "What is going on? My classes are crazy and the halls are nuts!!" (barometer)

Today-the same thing. My first period was very restless and unfocused. I would stop talking for 5 seconds and they were gone. It was very surprising since I have the advanced classes-but they are still 8th graders at heart. Second period not as bad after I read them the riot act.

Halls were crazy. Other teachers commented that their kids were very restless today. ISS was FULL- so many kids were being booted from class.


My own kids were not saved. They talk, but it was like listening to 2 chipmunks on the way home from school. Kids are girls 10 and 6.
The ten year old seemed to have lost all common sense and practical thought. The six year old was very jumpy and hyper.

After dealing with this all day-I am stressed, grumpy and tired. I try to handle it, but it takes a toll on me too.

The chart attached shows the dates, time and barometer change. The circled section was yesterday-falling rapidly from 30.35 to 30.18
in 4.5 hours. My station called it falling rapidly.
Since then there has been a constant free fall as the warm front moves in along with a weak low pressure.


Last year- I would take daily data on barometer changes, fronts, moon phases etc. and compare it to office referrals and general behavior in the classroom. Unofficially, I came to the conclusion that changes in barometer makes the kids unfocused and restless. Almost to the point where I could tell the drop in barometer BEFORE I looked at the charts.

I have found a little about this on the net but I think I have groundbreaking information. I am thinking about sending out a daily bulletin with the barometer reading and what to expect and how to adapt.


Have any of you felt like this or observed this as the weather changes. My knee hurts and I get headaches at times. My ten year old gets headaches too.

There is also a book called "The Man who Predicts Earthquakes" Jim Berkland and the author talks about people that get headaches before earthquakes. And animals that act differently or run away before quakes.

I also look at this book
http://www.manfredkaiser.com/book/
That book is my new evidence.
Two years ago, Minneapolis recorded its lowest air pressure ever. There were a record number of births at a local hospital.

If you want to make a bet on a baby being born, look at the weather. Bet it will happen before a rain or snow event.



Amazingly enough, snow does not as much. In the Minneapolis Metro area, most schools do not have snow days. We have enough equipment to clear snow fast.
Our district has had 1 snow day in 12 years. But some won't show up on those days because the bus is 10 minutes late. they go back home.

end essay

Yes, it affects both, but not in the way you'd imagine.

In the TV biz (specifically local news), big weather means all hands on deck, increased viewership, and increased attention to web and mobile.

Bingo. My day job is in HVAC, and you can add heatwaves - even one-day, 90-degree "heatwaves" - because it a) knocks out air conditioners, b) inspires the local power company to start their parasitic AC-cutoff program, which people misinterpret as their AC going out, and c) reminds everyone that it's summer, and they'd better get their annual checkup done.

That said, I'm looking quite forward to some crippling blizzards which I hope we get this year, so I can stay home and study and write instead.

For the HVAC guys, are fire ants in Kansas and if so have you encountered any problems in units because of them? Apparently it is a big problem in Texas.

My business is not impacted directly in any way by weather. However, it can affect me and my productivity. I'd be like Joe Banks if it rained all the time. And yet here in AZ it's sunny all. the. time. and that gets depressing too believe it or not. Best days here are when it rains. LOL

Edit: Not MY business. The company I work for.

We cannot perform our work in the rain but can with snow however we close all deals with no relevance to the weather.
