Snowstorm Hits Northeast part of U.S.



A snowstorm hit the Northeastern side of the U.S. last night. A lot of people's supplies blew away and many people lost their possessions. The temperature of the snowstorm got to 60 degrees Farenheit and left 6 inches of snow. The major snowstorm hit New York the hardest and left it covered in snow.

This connects to the invasion of Poland from Germany. We learned about this in class and how this was the start of WWII. During this time it was really snowy and there was a major snowstorm there.

Do you think snowstorms have a big impact on the economy? Do snowstorms have an effect on air travel?

  1. I mean snowstorms are an annoyance but, I doubt it'll effect the economy that much. It will be a pain for air travel though (Also it can snow at 60 degrees Fahrenheit?)

  2. Snowstorms are definitely a big impact on the economy because they affect the way businesses work worldwide. People are unable to transport goods which adds delays and ultimately leads to a decline in economic productivity. Air travel is definitely related because they are unable to fly due to the air temperature and ice buildup in engines that need to operate correctly.

    1. I agree because the products that they're shipping get delayed, and then they lose money because their product wont be there on time. Also, the planes wont work that good in that weather.

  3. I believe snowstorms do effect the economy because it determines whether businesses are going to be able to be able to work. People wouldn't be able to use the internet or transport things to other countries. Also, the air travel would be bad because the flight attendants wouldn't be able to fly the plane because of the snow.

  4. Air travel is impacted heavily when there are snowstorms. When the air travel is impacted, businesses are therefore impacted because people are unable to travel which causes a lot of inconvenience for many huge airlines and the people who use those airlines.

  5. Sure snowstorms could effect Air traffic or the transportation of goods and services. With snowy roads trucks can not transport goods as efficiently. I am pretty sure however the snowstorm was not 60 degrees Fahrenheit, because snow does not fall above 32 degrees.

  6. I do think that snowstorms and bad weather in general affect the economy since people are less likely to go in bad conditions. Businesses are stalled from tranporting/shipping goods which also slows down the amount of products bought by consumers. Snowstorms affect air travel which in turn affects how quick/slow goods are transported and people working in airlines.

  7. I believe that it could affect traffic, more car accidents, air traffic and delayed flight, transportation to get goods and getting goods to the stores would all be hard things to do in a snow storm.

  8. You have to remember that in the winter, areas like this are used to heavy snow storms and businesses and residents know how to adapt and work around the snow. I doubt it will hurt the economy since these area's businesses probably don't all close down, plus it allows for other businesses to profit like snow plows. Sure it impacts how well people can travel around but this is just a normal part of nature, big snow storms on the east coast happen every year

  9. I don't think snow storms really impact the economy, although they can get in the way for some people who need to get to work. They definitely get in the way regarding air travel as well as automobile travel, as snow can block up the road.

  10. I think they have a big impact on businesses such as the trucking industry because of the traffic that is caused by these massive storms. I don't think they have as big of an affect on air travel as much as the travel on the ground

  11. I think snow storms have a big impact on the economy. Weather conditions affect how much people go out and leave their houses, as well as how crops may be growing. Snow storms also have a big affect on air travel because if a plane does not have the correct weather conditions on the ground the plane cannot take off and land safely which leads to many flights being delayed and cancelled.

  12. I do not think storms impact our economy because it is not really taking anything from us.

  13. Yes I believe snowstorms affect the economy because snow storms affect pretty much everything . They affect how the crops grow how people get to work and how they come from work. it also effects school. And yes snowstorms do you affect flying because you can't fly in snowstorm.

  14. As someone who has lived in the midwest and was in multiple snow storms, I say that it does impact our economy but not by a big amount. To have plows come through to plow and spread salt on all the roads does take a price. And yes snowstorms do affect flying because it can cause the pilots not to see.

  15. Of course snow storms have effects on air travel and on peoples economy.

  16. I agree with Alex because snowstorms cause damages which affect the economy and also, snowstorms have a drastic influence on air travel since it makes safety an issue.

  18. It does impact the economy but not by much, it slows a lot things down because traveling in the snow is harder. It does cancel a lot of flights because they avoid flying in snowstorms.
