8 Pieces of Tech to Help You Survive the Next Blizzard
Out of curiosity, I spent a some time in the iOS app store looking around for different apps that could be of use during a snowstorm, and there were a few gems in there. Among them, Plowz and Mowz, which is essentially an Uber-like app that let’s you “order” on-demand plowing service. There are real-time updates and photo confirmation of completed jobs. And, as the name implies, this is a year-round service that will let users order on-demand lawn mowing. It’s currently only available in a few dozen cities from coast to coast, but it is expanding. FlightStats is self explanatory. And the NOAA has a pretty useful Snow Forecast app that lets users see how much it’s going to snow over the next few days in their precise location.
All of these, no doubt, just scratch the surface of useful technology to help anyone get through a snowy situation. What’s on your must-have list of winter tech gear? Leave them in the comments.
