Frozen precep on Friday morning? Still a threat of freezing rain between 5am and 9am  with temperatures just below the freezing mark for several hours…

 

REMINDER: Prep now for Winter weather…

Take a few minutes to properly inflate your tires and check the tread.  Maybe its time to switch out those ‘old’ wiper blades.

AAA: Cold Weather Driving Tips

Never warm up a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage.

Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface (like ice and snow).

Keep an emergency kit in your car, such as extra food and water, warm clothing, a flashlight, a scraper, blankets, medications, and more.
