It’s the most wonderful time of the year, at least that’s what all the songs tell us. I know I’m not alone when I say that the holiday season and all of it’s glorious chaos puts a smile on my face. I can also admit–with pleasure–that the start of December and seeing all those decked out houses can always brighten my mood!
Being in a Minnesota winter is being guaranteed of having a white holiday. There is nothing I like more than to add a heated blanket to my bed, and a stack of good books to my nightstand. Although playing in the snow can be a great time with your friends, I absolutely despise driving through the slush! It can cause too many little mistakes (turning too fast or suddenly trying to stop). So here are some tips to make driving in our winter wonderland more manageable:
- Have your car examined before you leave.
Be prepared for a change in course.
- Stay hydrated for the journey.
- Pack a winter safety kit for the car
- Make frequent rest stops.
Use this as a check-off list so you know you are fully prepared! I would also suggest marking on a map where the rest stops are just in case you need to make an emergency stop.
Happy holidays to all, and to all a safe drive!
