Cold Snap Brings in Business for Some

CINCINNATI (Scott Dimmich) -- The cold snap this week has basically quadrupled the amount of service work some businesses would see in the winter time.

Chris Zimmer and his employees at Zimmer Heating and Cooling have been working hard to keep up with failing furnaces all week.

"Traditionally we're a 40 to 50 hour work week.  This week we're probably pushing 80."

The parking lot of Icon Property Rescue and Restoration in Milford is usually filled with trucks, but nearly all of their trucks are out this week after getting flooded with calls.

Leah Hanlon of Icon Property Rescue and Restoration said, "On an average day, we probably have two or three calls of water damage.  This week, we had 163 calls in 24 hours.  The biggest problem we are facing is the lack of equipment."

But those are the usual suspects.  One place you may not have thought of that is counting their extra profits by the slice thanks to the recent cold snap: pizza delivery.

"It has been awesome.  We've been busy everyday.  Some of our stores have seen a 100% increase with the cold.  Other ones have seen 50 plus."

Rain or shine, warm or cold, pizza is always in my forecast.
