Abt Braves the Blizzard

Thursday, February 3rd, 2011

Just as suspected, the blizzard hit us late Tuesday and into Wednesday.  Roads were swarmed with that blustery, frozen white powder.  Engulfed enough to have them blocked, avoiding any further treachery for anyone brave enough to drive their car.  On Wednesday we closed for the first time, in a  long time, on a day that wasn’t a holiday.  The images below are just a small glimpse of what Abt Electronics looked like amidst Mother Nature’s cold shoulder…

Snowpocalypse Hits the Mid-West!!

Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011

Dr. Ray Stantz: Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!

Dr. Egon Spengler: Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes…

Winston Zeddemore: The dead rising from the grave!

Dr. Peter Venkman: Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together… mass hysteria!

Sorry, I couldn’t help but think of one of my favorite scenes from the movie “Ghostbusters” after hearing the local news and their concern with the impending blizzard.  Everyone in the Mid-West is in the middle of what the media here is calling a “Snowpocalypse”.  As the inches pile up, preparations were made in the form of gas, water and food.  Even though we here in Chicago are familiar with everything but a light dusting, it doesn’t hurt to be prepared.  Nothing says “preparation” more than a generator.  Check out our full line of generators to keep yourself safe during this blustery time.
