Winter Driving and Survival Tips – S1E21

Winter is here and hitting the Midwest with all its fury.  In the past couple weeks, we have gotten over 12 inches of snow and have endured subzero temperatures.  The wind chill in Minnesota has pushed temperatures to -20 to -30 degrees Fahrenheit.  It feels like our typical mid-January freeze!  In these conditions, winter driving can be treacherous.  Since I drive in some remote rural areas, I have started paying close attention to conditions and my own preparations.  Of course, things happen fast and sometimes you can find yourself stuck in a drift (yes, it happened yesterday). I did some research about driving and surviving in the cold, and figured it would be helpful to pass this information along to you. This episode is titled Winter Driving and Survival Tips, and is Part 2 of last week’s podcast on Winter Tips which focused on preparing yourself and your house for the winter.

  1. Prepare your car for the winter. Change your tires to winter tires, this can help you to survive the snowy roads. It will increase your safety and avoids accidents when driving.

    • Thanks for the comment! Absolutely! We have found that with our personal vehicles AND the company vehicle I am driving. Bald tires just don’t grip the snow and can leave you stranded in a ditch or sliding through an intersection. I have reviewed a few crash reports where people slide through railroad crossings and get hit by trains. Not a good situation! Changing tires is a great way to improve handling on snowy and icy roads.

      Excellent comment!
