November brought some cold weather in parts of the United States and Canada, and that was the general theme that resonated on the Direct Energy Business blog.

Two out of the three top visited posts had something to do with weather and preparing for winter.

It’s obvious that many of you are preparing your businesses for the cold winter months.

2. La Nina is Here, Weather Experts Say. So What Does it Really Mean?

Next up is another post about weather. This time, we spoke to our very own in-house meteorologist to get an idea of what La Nina means.

This came after weather officials in the United States announced that La Nina climate conditions arrived and are expected to stick around through at least the first part of 2018.

Direct Energy Business Meteorologist Beau Gjerdingen said La Nina patterns typically favor warmer than normal conditions across the Southern United States and cooler than normal conditions across Western Canada and through the Midwestern portion of the United States.
