A warning system and quick actions prevented one area business from suffering devastating damage. During last weekend’s epic snowstorm, Maas Floral and Greenhouse had to deal with a heating outage and heavy snow that threatened their six greenhouses. Owner Todd Maas describes what they did to help save their structures and plants.
Maas says they also had to move plants out of one greenhouse that suffered a heating outage that their sensory system warned them in the middle of the night. He estimates that the additional heating costs was $500-$600 to prevent the loss of plants which he says could have meant the loss of thousands of dollars in the future.
