Struggling to Bloom

Struggling to Bloom

The old adage about New England is that if you don’t like the weather, wait ten minutes and it will change. That observation applied to most of the Northeast yesterday and today as conditions changed from snow to sunshine to darkening clouds and back again. We were treated to the incongruous appearance of spring bulbs flowering through the snow. Weather patterns appear to becoming more erratic: we have seen tornadoes in Brooklyn and snowstorms in Atlanta. Our business continuity plans have to be ready for any type of weather in any season in any region.

This photograph perfectly captures the theme of erratic weather and the challenges of preparing our businesses for any contingency. I was in Boston for meetings today and passed by this small public garden. The image of the daffodils struggling to rise above the snow caught my attention – a great image for what our businesses must do to thrive.
