Winds of Life Speaking of Hurricanes, our own lives resemble one sometimes. Mine has. A minute ago, these baby boys were safely within the confines of my home or backyard. On May 7th, the triplets turned 18. On May 20th, the triplets graduated high school. Pictured here, side by side are John, Francis and Zeke beforehand, and right after diplomas, are Francis, John and Zeke again... looking much relieved I might add. Today, June 1st, Joe and I are taking Francis to the airport to go to Chiang Mai, Thailand, to spend some time with Habitat For Humanity, and then to tour a little on a motorcycle. They rushed into my life, changed it for the better, every day, and now, one by one, the winds of life are under their wings and taking them to wonderful places. And for today, just out of my reach.

HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS

Hurricane Matthew

O

On October 4, 2016, Hurricane Matthew began to make headlines in the United States as the powerful storm swept through Haiti. By that time, the governors of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina had all declared a state of emergency and preparations were underway for the storm. Two days later, a slightly weaker Matthew made landfall in Florida, then blew up the coast through North Carolina over the following three days. THE EFFECT OF HURRICANE MATTHEW ON CONSUMER SPENDING Severe weather events, such as blizzards and hurricanes, can temporarily disrupt economic activity. The imprints of these events on aggregate statistics can make it challenging for macroeconomists to analyze and forecast economic conditions. Weather events present an opportunity to observe how consumers adjust their spending in the face of unanticipated shocks. Thus far, however, there has been little analysis of the spending effects from weather events, partly due to a lack of data. For example, official statistics such as retail sales are only estimated nationally at a monthly frequency. New information

AND CONSUMER SPENDING

technology allows economists to use a new dataset of transaction volumes to examine how consumers reacted to Hurricane Matthew. Our results reveal that the hurricane significantly reduced consumer spending in the affected states (Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina) in early October. Although the level of spending after the storm quickly returned to normal, very little of the preceding shortfall appears to have been made up in the subsequent weeks, suggesting that the hurricane had a negative effect on spending. The drop in activity was most apparent on discretionary spending, such as restaurants, as opposed to necessities, such as grocery stores. Obviously, if your area is dependent on tourism, hospitality and lodging, a hurricane will drop that spending to zero for some period of time. Those dollars will rarely be made up – it’s difficult to reschedule a long planned vacation. The two weeks of revenue your home rental and hotel industry lose will never come back. DESCRIPTION OF THE PAYMENT TRANSACTIONS DATA The data used for this analysis is the outcome of a trial collaboration

between the Federal Reserve Board, Palantir Technologies, and First Data Corporation. The anonymized transactions aggregates originate from First Data, an electronic payments processor that provides merchants with the technology to process credit, debit, and electronic payment transactions. Palantir constructed daily indexes of purchases by state and industry for the Board. The daily indexes are available with only a three-day delay so it is possible to study spending almost in real time. The sample is not necessarily representative of all debit, credit, and electronic transactions in the United States; in addition, it does not include cash or checks. The analysis is focused on a broad spending measure referred to as the "retail sales group," accounting for about one third of total consumer spending. The daily, state-level indexes from First Data have no counterpart in the official statistics. Comparisons with Census monthly retail sales data at the national level, however, reveal similar patterns in changes in consumer spending over 2014 to 2016.

HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS

ater management runs in the blood of the Dutch: draining the Netherlands and keeping it dry is a process they started centuries ago and continue to this day. In Sweet & Salt: Water and the Dutch, author Tracy Metz and art historian Maartje van den Heuvel demonstrate, in text and images, how the Netherlands negotiates its evolving relationship with water -- and what the rest of the world can learn from them as our sea levels rise, our rivers swell and storms and droughts multiply. From New Orleans and Hamburg to Vietnam and China, the world is facing landscapes in drastic metamorphosis. And from the dikes and dams of the past to the new

8 REFRIGERATION Magazine │June 2017

solutions of Dutch design practice for the future, the Netherlands’ history with water offers a muchneeded perspective on life in our new waterworld. The Netherlands is a geographically low-lying country, with about 20% of its area and 21% of its population located below sea level. As much as 50% of its land lie less than one meter above sea level. With two thirds of its area vulnerable to flooding, flood control is an important issue for the Netherlands. The country utilizes a system of embankments, dikes and sluice gates along the seafront and on the mouths of the rivers to prevent storm water from surging in from the sea.


In 1953, after a massive flood in the North Sea that killed 1,835 people, displaced 70,000 more and caused damages worth 1 billion Dutch guilders, the government started building a series of dams, sluices, locks, dykes, levees, and storm surge barriers around the Rhine-Meuse-Scheldt delta to protect the area from flooding. Collectively known as the Delta Works or North Sea Protection Works, the barriers are an engineering marvel that the American Society of Civil Engineers has named one of the “Seven Wonders of the Modern World.�

Continually measuring and studying water height and land elevation changes is crucial to helping us plan and prepare for whatever a changing ocean brings our way. Photo credit: Delta Works consists of 13 ambitious projects designed to protect the Netherlands from flooding from the North Sea. Among the various barriers constructed two stand out -

one is Maeslantkering and the other is Oosterscheldekering. Politics aside, working to manage water levels before a disaster is being studied and implemented. The Dutch have been dealing with keeping the water out for centuries and the rest of the world is taking greater notice than ever before.

In Miami Beach, street levels are being raised 2.5 feet. With the most ambitious piece yet of its aggressive anti-flooding project, some homeowners worry that raising streets to keep them dry will cause flooding on their properties. The city will embark on a $100 million project to raise roads, install pumps and water mains and redo sewer connections during the next two years across a swath of single-family homes in the La Gorce and Lakeview neighborhoods of Mid-Beach. A sizable chunk of a citywide effort estimated to cost $400 to $500 million, the work is meant to keep streets dry in the face of sea level rise. Along the way, engineers will have to figure out how to smoothly join private property to the public right-of-way, which will be an average of two feet higher than it is now. In some cases, private property that drains excess water into the street will no longer do so, creating a conundrum that public works officials believe could be solved with a new form of public-private partnership. Scientists project sea levels will rise 8-17 inches this century, and this is faster than ever before in recorded human history. Coastal communities will lose farmland, fresh water supplies, and natural barriers against flooding.

HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS

Feds Step It Up On

HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS Beginning of Season Marks New Public Outreach

For 2017, the National Weather Service has teamed with the Department of Homeland Security to concentrate on hurricane preparation and damage prevention, reaching out through websites and social media with plans and instructions for residents of hurricane prone areas. FEMA and the Government in general have been heavily criticized for hurricane response in times past. Few will forget the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and subsequent flooding in 2005. More recently, in 2012 Hurricane Sandy hit the seldom affected (compared to Florida and North Carolina) New Jersey and New York coasts. Damage which was less widespread than Katrina, but caused more expense and disruption to infrastructure because of the population density.

PRIORITIES

Your family’s safety, as well as the safety of your employees and their families, is your first priority. Following closely, however, is assuring the continuity of your business.

A well prepared community requires less relief, and NWS efforts this year are concentrating on residents of affected areas being aware of the need and making a plan for it. The Web-based effort has published a series of planning resources at www.ready.gov/hurricane-toolkit. The site went live in May and includes comprehensive resources designed to help residents: – Determine their risk – Develop an evacuation plan – Assemble disaster supplies – Verify their insurance coverages, including flood insurance – Strengthen their homes – F orm safety relationships with neighbors Finally, residents are encouraged to complete a written hurricane plan. Common sense is the rule here. While bread and milk won’t keep, assembling blankets, gallon jugs of water and a hand crank radio in a designated safe area are easy to do now. Verifying insurance coverage now gives you time to change policy terms in advance rather than wake up to a devastating financial shock. While NWS is concentrating its outreach efforts on coastal areas, they are reminding residents of all major cities along the east coast of their vulnerability. Population centers such as Atlanta, Charlotte,

Washington and Philadelphia may not experience the direct winds and tidal surge of a hurricane, but as storm systems spin out over land they can cause power outages, tornadoes and flooding from extreme rains. PREPAREDNESS AT YOUR BUSINESS Your family’s safety, as well as the safety of your employees and their families, is your first priority. Following closely, however, is assuring the continuity of your business. Your employees have a stake in that, as days closed are often days not paid to them. Another government resource, sba.gov, has a set of resources under its “Emergency Preparedness” page that offer fill-in-the-blank checklists and planning. Being a business resource, maintaining business continuity is a primary goal. Data integrity is increasingly important. With more critical data moving to Software as a Service cloud-based solutions, data backup is not as critical as it once was, and a well set up business can lose its entire computer network without a problem. Everybody goes and gets a new laptop, connects to the Internet, and all their data is still there. Your best asset in preparing your business might be your insurance company. It’s in their financial

interest to limit your losses, and many have comprehensive resources to help prepare for disasters. A good business plan will include a plan to establish communication between key employees to determine when it’s possible to return to an evacuated area. Power and cellphone coverage may be out in the affected area, and your employees may have dispersed. You need to plan ahead to get everyone back on board. Consulting with your insurance agent and/or company will help you answer another critical question: your business interruption coverage. Most business policies include this, but it’s critical to understand beforehand what specific conditions are covered, for how much and how long. You may have coverage not just to repair any damage, but to cover your lost cash flow or compensate employees for their lost time. On the other hand, policy exclusions may mean that conditions you assumed were covered are not. Now is the best time to find this out. The Boy Scouts worldwide have used the same motto since 1907: Be Prepared! It worked then and it will work for you this summer. Just as the best defense is a good offense, the best post-storm reparation is a strong preparation. June 2017 │ REFRIGERATION Magazine 11

C-STORE NEWS

BOXCAR MARKET GIVES NEW MEANING TO LOCAL C-STORE THE FLORENCE, S.C., SITE ALSO SERVES AS A VENDOR FOR LOCAL ARTISANS Boxcar Market Mercantile and Grocer in downtown Florence is redefining the meaning of "convenience store."

an identified need for a store of some kind. I thought, ‘That would be a need that would probably work.’”

Paying homage to Florence’s railroad history, Boxcar Market opened in late February at 163 W. Evans St. Co-owners Lynette Miller and Rick Osward describe Boxcar Market as combining three things in one: a convenience store, a neighborhood market and a vendor for local artisans, reported SCNow.com.

As Osward and Miller began construction on Boxcar Market, downtown Florence was also going through a period of growth, adding apartment buildings and other residential structures. Osward said he wanted Boxcar Market to develop along with the town, and allow the market to serve as a welcoming structure for incoming residents.

Although the store carries necessities such as bread, milk and laundry detergent, it also offers customers a variety of products made by local artisans and manufacturers like jewelry, soaps, handmade birdhouses and more. According to Osward, the idea for opening Boxcar Market came about because there weren't any c-stores located downtown. “There’s not a single place down here, not even a vending machine downtown,” he said. “It all came out of

“We timed it so that we could be a neighborhood market to the new residents,” Osward articulated. “You can live down here, you can walk to a shop and pick up bread, eggs and milk without having to drive to [supermarket chain] Bi-Lo.” In addition to promoting downtown, Boxcar Market helps promote local manufacturers and artists who are looking to sell their products in a smaller market setting, the news outlet

reported. A dedicated section of Boxcar Market features local products such as handmade soaps and jewelry, homemade jams, soups and sauces. Local artists also have their works on display and on sale in the store. Although Boxcar Market is open for business, it is still unfinished, Osward noted, adding that he and Miller hope to install a cold kitchen to sell fresh salads and sandwiches. The co-owners also plan to add a seating area in the upstairs section for local employees to have a place to spend their lunch break and enjoy a meal. Looking toward the future, Osward said he is both excited and hopeful that Boxcar Market and downtown Florence as a whole will continue to thrive. “We were motivated by the new residents coming in, that [downtown] was becoming a livable pedestrian space,” he commented. “The renaissance going on downtown is just exciting. It’ll just get better from here.”

SUPPLIER PROFILE

(An Advertorial)

AND

Routeman and The Iceman Back in fall of 2015, The Iceman was desperate for a new solution for customer billing. We sold, as we still do, products across a variety of categories – not only different sizes, shapes, and quantities of packaged ice, but also dry ice, ice sculptures, and ice machines – and this complexity naturally allowed more opportunity for mix-ups prior to billing. Furthermore, at the time, any order for a customer was printed to hard copy from our accounting system and went through at least four sets of hands (CSR, dispatcher, driver, accounting) before being returned to our system for invoicing. If an order was changed after the initial printing it was liable to cause problems; if there was any dispute over an invoice, accounting would have to dig through files to find it and then scan it to provide a copy to our customer; and even if there were no unusual elements to an order, there were so many places where the paper copy could be misplaced before invoicing, not to mention misfiled after invoicing. Furthermore, because we couldn’t provide an invoice from our accounting software upon delivery, we’d have to provide an order copy upon delivery and then a payable invoice copy later by e-mail, which frequently caused confusion for our customers. So, naturally we were anxious to find an alternative. We were communicating with a company that wanted to adapt their software product for us so that our drivers would be able to invoice customers while they were on route. However, the software had clearly 16 REFRIGERATION Magazine │June 2017

been designed for different industries with different needs from our own. The more we communicated what would be ideal in terms of routing, invoicing, and equipment management, the more we were faced with the structural limitations of the system. We needed to move towards a digital option, but we knew that moving forward with this software would result in us trying to work around its limitations, rather than the other way around. This is when KCS and RouteMan entered into the conversation. They were much

smaller than the company we had been dealing with, and the software we saw in the demonstrations perhaps lacked the slick design and flair we had seen in the alternative we had been considering. However, it became clear very quickly that this was a system tailored for the ice delivery industry, and all the elements of the software reflected this. RouteMan offered possibilities for a unified digital interface the likes of which we didn’t even dare to hope for. Inventory, routing, fixed asset management, invoicing and credit card charging all in the same


place, and all communicating with one another as seamless as possible, everything updated live with hand-held devices. It was a dream come true. What we didn’t realize when we decided to proceed with RouteMan was how much the software would adapt as we moved forward. Yes, RouteMan was clearly the option for us, but we still had a wish-list of ways that it could help us create future efficiencies. We were thrilled to discover that as we communicated with KCS about these potential improvements to the software, they began appearing as we received software updates. The opportunity to intimately give feedback to KCS regarding our usage of the software and have it show up in changes to the software shortly thereafter was something we’d never seen before with other programs or digital services we’d used. RouteMan has allowed us to reduce our accounting labour by half, has

created immense efficiencies in our fulfillment processes, and has allowed us to gather information about our sales in real time, which has greatly improved our ability to make informed decisions. Every aspect of our process is accessible to the relevant team member through their terminal or their handheld device, which has eliminated frustrations for our staff in a huge way. At a management level, avoiding errors and simplifying our processes has left us free to focus on sales growth, which has been and will continue to be a benefit to our bottom line. The support we get from KCS is unparalleled – it can’t be disputed that they truly care about our experience with the software, and it’s proven over and over again in our interactions with them. They’re not just offering assistance – they’re working together with us to help us move forward. We have no doubt that as we grow we’ll be able to maintain this

relationship with KCS, and we look forward to the opportunity to see how RouteMan can assist us in our upcoming endeavors using its existing features and ones yet to come in the future!

"The support we get from KCS is unparalleled – it can’t be disputed that they truly care about our experience with the software, and it’s proven over and over again in our interactions with them." - Jake Silva, The Iceman
