We have all experienced not one but two winter storm events over the past 10 days making us realize that winter is officially here to stay for at least the next couple of months. Hopefully you were prepared at home and if you had to travel during these events. If not, you still have time because winter is far from over. We take the necessary precautions when it comes to our home but what about your vehicle? Not all of us have the luxury of staying home when the winter weather hits so make sure your vehicle is equipped to handle driving in winter storm events. Make sure your tires are properly inflated and have enough tread to be able to maneuver through snowy and slushy roads. Check your tires often during colder weather. Keep at least a half a tank of fuel in your vehicle during the winter months – being stranded on the highway is bad enough - but running out of gas can be a nightmare in itself! Keep blankets – snacks, water, and a cell phone charger in your car prior to a winter event. The weather can change quickly – stay informed with local weather alerts and your local Department of Transportation. If you don’t have to travel, then stay home and enjoy the winter wonderland with your family.
