Winter Storm Jonas – Provencher Ready to Respond!

WINTER STORM JONAS

Winter Storm JonasProvencher & Company is on alert as Winter Storm Jonas threatens the eastern coast of the US. Winter Storm Jonas kicked off Thursday with an initial round of snow and ice, and will turn into a major snowstorm later today into the weekend over a large swath of the East Coast. Heavy snow is expected to fall across parts of at least 15 states, with blizzard conditions possible over parts of the Washington D.C., Baltimore and New York City metro areas. Winter Storm Jonas will also feature strong, possibly damaging winds, significant icing and coastal flooding.

Snow and Ice Impacts

  • At least 1 foot of snow likely: Eastern Kentucky into most of West Virginia, Virginia except southeast portion, most of Maryland, D.C., northern Delaware, far southern Pennsylvania and extreme northwest North Carolina. Parts of these areas may see more than 20 inches of total snowfall.
  • At least 6 inches of snow likely: I-95 corridor northward through New York City/Long Island, westward into the Ohio Valley and northwest Tennessee. 
  • Sharp snowfall gradient: There remains considerable uncertainty regarding snow amounts on the northern edge of Jonas’ snow shield from Pennsylvania to southern New England. These areas could see snowfall exceeding 6 inches, but confidence is not as high as areas just to the south.
  • Ice: The highest probability of accumulating ice to the extent of not only leading to slick roads, but also some tree damage and power outages, includes parts of central and eastern Kentucky, northern South Carolina and western and central North Carolina. Lighter ice accumulation may still lead to slick roads from eastern Arkansas to southern Virginia.

Hello My Name Is ….

I remember when I was in college, the first day of class would start with role call—the professor reading out last names, Robbins (here), Smith (here), Fogarty (here), and usually just before my name was called there was a long pause followed by some close scrutiny of the student roster and then…Lisa? I used to wait and watch for it. Why? Because my last name back then was difficult to pronounce!Lisa Marshall, Public SpeakerHello-My-Name-Is-Hard-to-Pronounce

Are you faced with a name and have a tough time trying to decipher how to pronounce what you are seeing on paper? Yes? How about being face to face with someone and not knowing how to correctly pronounce their name? I think we have all been there a time or two. Advice: If you don’t know the correct pronunciation of someone’s name, ask!

People wince inwardly when you mispronounce their names. Even worse, it is a serious breach of business etiquette. If you are in doubt, ask apologetically for the person to recite it for you. Additionally, jokes or wisecracks about a person’s name are not funny and are offensive. Always remain professional.

If your own name is difficult to pronounce, please do people a courtesy and help out the person who is trying to pronounce it – promptly. No need for them to stumble and stutter uncomfortable for your mere entertainment purposes. You can simply smile and say “It’s a tough name isn’t it?” Then pronounce it clearly without making a big deal out of it.

Here are a few resources to help you out, hopefully, before you find yourself in a sticky situation with a new & hard to pronounce name:

  1. PronounceNames.com
  2. HowToPronounce.com
  3. HearNames.com
  4. TheNameMachine.com

It’s always great to get a difficult name to pronounced correctly, but at very least you should get it wrong politely.
