SNOW What?

1/5/2022 (Permalink)

Snow is a lot like liver and onions. You either love it or hate it. After Mondays SNOW event  paralyzed vehicles for 48 miles south of Washington, leaving hundreds of motorists stranded — many for more than 24 hours without food or water while temps dropped into the teens then chances are that, you hate the fact that you weren't prepared for it, or love that you are.

S'now what...

Mother nature can be a real beast. In fact, she's a killer. And when it comes to a snow event, the best idea for safety is to stay off the roads and keep warm and safe at home. However, that isn't always possible. When you find that you must venture out on snowy and icy roads, you know to stay alert, drive a little slower, brake according to road conditions... But what if your vehicle breaks down or gets stuck and you must wait for help in a disabled vehicle in dangerously cold, wet weather?

Please take a moment to look at the list (below) of suggested items to keep in your vehicle. Just a little bit of preparation can keep a little emergency from becoming a catastrophe.
