On Saturday, February 15, Indiana broke the record that had stood for over 30 years, officially reaching 51.6″ of snow for this winter season. Just how unusual has this winter been? According to the National Weather Service, Indianapolis averages a total of 25.9″ of snow per winter, so this winter, we have nearly doubled that average! Much of central Indiana has been under a blanket of snow since early January — over a month!

This winter is making news, not only for the record snowfalls and extreme cold, but for the effects of the fierce conditions. Local economies are suffering the financial impact of the amount of salt and manpower needed to keep roads clear. Business owners have lost revenue as travel warnings prevented them from opening or patrons stayed home instead of braving the weather. Families are feeling the impact of higher than normal heating costs. Flash floods were triggered by melting snow and heavy rains during our brief periods above freezing. Casualties on our roadways have mounted as whiteouts and ice made travel treacherous. No doubt, this will be one of those winters Hoosiers talk about for years to come.

Landscape Solutions Has Fought the Elements

The Landscape Solutions team has been busy providing snow and ice removal services to our valued clients, helping them safely get back to business as usual after these weather events. We’ve done everything in our power to make sure our clients are inconvenienced or threatened by these extreme conditions as little as possible. Since the average last date of measurable snow in central Indiana is March 30, and measurable snowfall has occurred as late as May 8, few doubt we will see plenty more snow before it’s all over. Our clients can rest assured we will be there for the last flake!

What is Behind this Extreme Weather?

Scientists believe the extreme weather we are experiencing are caused by is caused by climate change. Whether or not you believe the crazy weather is a result of a man made crisis or just nature doing what nature does, few argue that taking care of our environment is important. The quality of the air we breathe is something we should all be concerned with, not only in the hazy days of summer, but in the winter months as well. Snowplows, cars left idling to heat up, and heating systems pollute our air. Landscape Solutions, we have committed to incorporating green technology into the services we provide to reduce our carbon footprint and our negative impact on the environment. Our production vehicles, the trucks we use to combat snow and ice, are 100% fueled by propane — an alternative fuel that is a more responsible choice than gasoline. Propane is one of the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels and is nontoxic and not harmful to water or soil.

Pollution Prevention with Less Harmful Emissions

When compared to gasoline, the use of propane to power our mowers and fleet vehicles cuts the amount of harmful greenhouse gas emissions in half. The use of propane over gasoline reduces the amount of carcinogens and toxins released into the air, such as toluene and benzene, by as much as 90%. The exhaust from propane-powered mowers  & vehicles releases 60 – 70% less smog-producing hydrocarbons over that of gasoline-powered mowers & vehicles. The use of propane significantly reduces the amount of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and nitrous oxide released into the air — gases that contribute to climate change.
