April Showers Can Be Good For May Flowers, But Not Consumers ...
While these types of accidents are unexpected, they certainly aren’t uncommon. Another customer in Chapel Hill, North Carolina was up late studying for exams one spring evening when she finally decided to go to bed. After shutting her laptop off and quickly falling asleep, a heavy rainstorm ensued overnight and rain leaked in through the window. When the customer woke up in the morning, her laptop was sitting in a puddle of rain on her desk and it was inoperable.A third customer in Wilmington, North Carolina had experienced a week with nothing but torrential rainstorms. When the weekend rolled around, his dog couldn’t wait to go on a walk. After a quick lap around the block, the dog ran back inside soaking wet and began to shake dry in close proximity to the customer’s open laptop. As a result, his laptop became soaked and would not power on.“With almost twenty percent of claims received from college students coming from liquid damage, it is no surprise that rainy spring weather contributes to so many electronic mishaps,” says Safeware’s Chief Executive Officer, Bryan Schutjer. “Fortunately, our protection plans are created with these incidents in mind and we are proud to offer comprehensive coverage for students.

Out of flowers? Flour? Businesses contend with supply crises
Fink, whose company is located in Pittsboro, North Carolina.That happened as the U.S. economy was still suffering after the Great Recession, making it hard to find new business and make up the revenue. Fink developed new products including motorized lifts used to store flat panel TVs in decorative cabinets. He also increased his online business."You just don't give up — we're a small entrepreneurial business," he says.While shortages are an obstacle for many small businesses, some owners have actually made materials in short supply the heart of their business.Albany Woodworks uses reclaimed wood from demolished houses, barns and other buildings to make flooring and paneling. When Richard Woods started the business more than 40 years ago, reclaimed wood was easy to find and he had no competition. But demand has grown from renovating homeowners and groups restoring historical sites, and so has the number of rival firms."We are constantly having to network to find new suppliers that may have quality wood," says Woods, whose company is located in Tickfaw, Louisiana. His suppliers are demolition companies, and most sites with the wood he needs are in industrial revolution-era towns in New England and along the Mississippi River. "We go wherever we have to," Woods says.At Widespread Electrical Sales, owner Scott Vaughn also travels the country in search of equipment that may be decades old."We rely on big industrial plants that are closing, buy the right to their power distribution systems, and rip them down," says Vaughn, whose company is based in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. He also gets obsolete equipment from decommissioned call centers and data centers.Widespread Electric sells about half a million breakers a year, with some costing as much as $25,000. The cost is worth it for a business that otherwise would have to retrofit its power systems.Supply shortages are an inherent part of the electrical business, Vaughn says."It's directed by the manufacturers themselves," he says. "They put out a product line and sell it with a planned obsolescence program behind it."_____Follow Joyce Rosenberg at www.twitter.com/JoyceMRosenberg .

Highway wildflowers to appear soon
By Kelsey Stiglitz The Daily News
Cleaning isn’t the only way to prepare for spring. The North Carolina Department of Transportation has also started fertilizing flower beds and getting them ready for wildflowers.While many of the blooms won’t be spotted until April at the earliest, the prep work for summer flowers occurs just ahead of spring.According to Brian Rick, communications officer for NCDOT, the wildflower program costs an average of $1,700- $2,000 per acre and is funded by the sale of personalized license plates.Besides brightening up the roadways in the summer, the wildflower program provides habitat and food for pollinator species like bees and hummingbirds.“We intentionally keep the wildflower species as diverse as possible to accommodate the various soil types and micro-climatic conditions across the State,” Rick said.According to research from North Carolina State, this method works.When compared to non-mowed roadside habitats, research found more pollinators at the wildflower habitats, Rick said.Right now, soil preparation is happening at the early blooming sites by removing existing vegetation an...
