About Us A Bit More About Our Company
It started with a phone call between friends. Jeff called Larry after finding out that DC was covered with 20 inches of snow. The call went something like this... "are the kids' going to school with all this snow?" Larry replied "who knows, every morning we sit on the couch for like 20 minutes watching the news to see if the kids school scrolls up on the screen." Laughing Jeff says, "I remember those days, you'd think there would be an easier way now with smart phones and social media." *long pause* At that moment, they both realized that they would work to solve this problem.
