To get an idea of the importance of having a backup generator for your business, think about what could happen if an unexpected power outage occurred. You would not be able to access data, complete sales, manufacture products, connect with customers, ensure employee and customer safety, and could be forced to shut down your business until power was restored.

The key word, however, is “much.” The outlook for the Southeast, East Coast and Mid-Atlantic is not quite as rosy, with the amount of precipitation expected to be above average and the chances of colder-than-normal temperatures greater than anywhere in the country.
