Is Your Car Ready For Winter?
1: Look at your calendar and see if it's winter. Your mileage may vary depending on which side of the equator you call home. If it's not winter, ignore steps 2 and 3.
2: If it IS winter, then again consult your map and see if you live where it is likely to be below freezing on a regular basis. HINT: If you live on Mars, it is below freezing all the time. I mean it's C.O.L.D. there ALL THE TIME!!! If you usually don't get snow during the winter, ignore step 3.
3: By now you have established that it IS winter, you DO live where it gets cold, so this will the most important step. MOVE TO WHERE YOU DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT WINTER! Holy smokes, I mean, just pack up and go live where you can drive safely, play golf, and go outside in shorts and sandals all year!
Seriously, cold weather brings about some driving hazards that are easy to prepare for, so take the time to make your car is ready for the cold. Check out this checklist from our good friends at USAA: USAA Winter Auto-guide
