    Instead of going into hibernation mode like many companies during this typically slower and colder time of year, they offer a range of services and products mostly to do what customers want: stay warm and enjoy snow-free roadways and driveways. Many businesses operate on a strictly seasonal basis, while others are open 12 months a year but earn most of their annual revenues during a particular season.
