Spring is Here – Order Your Metal Shelter Now!

With an allergy-filled spring season already here and a hot summer approaching, there’s no better time to build your own custom metal shelter.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, it’s no surprise that Spring has arrived early this year. Flowers are already blooming, the trees are budding, and a thin coat of pollen is already beginning to form. Soon the bees will begin their work and the familiar buzz of springtime will fill the air.

Hot Hot Heat

According to CNN, nearly 6,000 high temperature records have been set in the United States during the month of February alone. Some records were broken by more than 10 degrees, while other areas saw record high temperatures for the entire month of February. The heat has been felt as far north as New York and Chicago. In fact, temperatures in the Windy City climbed over 66 degrees for six straight days. In the 145 years of record-keeping prior, there were only nine days above 66 degrees during February. Dozens of places on the eastern half of the country are experiencing the warmest February on record. These cities include Dallas, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, and Washington DC.

What Happened to Winter?

Snow has also been a non-factor during much of 2017. Chicago has seen only 0.6 inches of snow this year. The normal amount for the same period is usually close to 20 inches. Minneapolis has also seen significantly less snowfall than usual, with only 0.3 inches falling during the month of February – tying a record for the least ever in that month.

With records being broken all over the country, the February heat has allowed spring to arrive early – and plants are following suit. Such a sudden change of seasons means many people are likely unprepared for the coming barrage of pollen and other allergens. Keeping your vehicle exposed to this green invasion can wreak havoc on your allergies.
