“It is summertime,” you shout to your team across the room.
They respond with blank stares. You’re telling them something they already know.
The majority of your team is from the area, so they know what type of weather to expect this time of year.
Today’s no different than any other summer morning meeting. You run through tonight’s event, review the weather forecast, and send your team off to the races.
“Expect some rain today,” Luke, your operations manager yells as everyone disperses into the building.
Luke rushes over to you following the meeting.
“I’m going to get some sandbags together in case the rain gets out of hand today,” he tells you as he takes another sip of his coffee.
“We should be all right today,” you respond. “But, go ahead. Ask Matt and his security team to give you a hand,” he continues.
45 minutes into the event, you hear the crack of lighting, followed by heavy thunder that shakes the building. The rain begins hitting the metal roof of your offices.
