Polar Vortex

January 29, 2014

Let’s take a look

 

At our extended weather forecast…

 

 

Well…

 

 

Tomorrow is going to be cold

 

 

 

The next day…

 

Should be just as cold

 

 

Possibly colder

 

 

 

Then

 

The day after that…

 

 

Will probably be just as cold

 

 

 

However, we also show that

 

There could be a chance of….

 

 

Freezing rain…

 

 

It might be snow…

 

 

Or

 

 

Possibly a Wintery Mix

 

 

 

This can all bring icy conditions

 

 

 

 

Let’s be careful out there

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s take a minute to look at

 

 

What may be causing

 

 

This weather pattern

 

 

 

Normally

 

We would be looking to the

 

 

Western Pacific

 

 

 

However it seems that La Nina

 

 

Is taking the winter off

 

 

 

Instead…

 

 

We have been visited by

 

 

A polar vortex

 

Pushing down from the Artic

 

 

 

In the first two weeks of 2014

 

 

Much of the United States weathered

 

A cold snap of unprecedented proportions…

 

 

 

A weather phenomenon known as…

 

The “Polar Vortex”

 

 

Shattering temperature records across the country

 

 

 

Just when you thought it was safe

 

To go outside…

 

 

 

Another polar vortex is on the way

 

 

This one is due to hit

 

 

This week

 

 

 

 

Is this a new phenomenon?

 

 

 

I thought it was just cold outside

 

 

 

Because it is…

 

 

January

Meanwhile…

 

The energy markets

 

Have been in a reaction mode

 

 

 

Put a name on the weather conditions

 

 

And they are all in

 

 

 

Prices jump

 

 

 

You wait a day…

 

 

They jump again

 

 

 

You wait a few more days

 

 

Prices start to ease back down

 

 

 

 

Prices never come down…

 

 

As fast as they go up

 

 

 

With another polar vortex

 

 

On the way

 

 

 

You can almost hear

 

 

The energy market’s teeth clattering

 

 

 

While all this is happening

 

 

 

We find it best

 

To look past

 

The frenzy

 

 

One thing I have learned

 

 

Being in the energy business…

 

For 13 years

 

 

 

Patience is a virtue

 

 

 

Our goal has always been

 

 

 

To educate our clients

 

 

And…

 

 

Provide the best opportunity

 

 

For savings

 

 

 

 

With a lower basis (transportation) cost

 

 

And increasing natural gas supplies

 

 

 

Most experts feel

 

 

Natural gas prices will settle down

 

 

 

Once again bringing

 

 

Great opportunities for savings

 

 

In both

 

 

The Natural Gas and Electric markets

 

 

 

We just have to wait for the Polar Vortex

 

 

To pass
