Winter Driving and Survival Tips - S1E21

About this Episode

Winter is here 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.
