Travelling in Winter Conditions…
Am I the only delinquent out there who has yet to put her winter tires on her vehicle? I, as well as most of you in our area, had our first rude reminder last week that winter travel season has arrived. (My reminder came while I was doing an involuntary donut at an intersection in our subdivision.)
I made the decision last year to finally purchase winter tires. I can confidently say it was the best decision I’ve made since my purchase of a remote car starter. (Also very necessary, in my opinion!)
Do you have any winter travel tips that you can recommend? (Leave a tip and we'll send you some Pomeroy winter gear!)
My solution is usually to practice hibernation; however, we are not always afforded that luxury! We live in an area that is relentlessly beaten down by winter weather, from frigid temperatures to high winds causing poor visibility. All of these elements can make for some scary travelling situations.
I found a couple helpful links that I thought I would share with you, as we get ready to brave yet another Canadian winter!

I feel a little more prepared for an emergency situation on the road with my Pomeroy toque and mittens in the glove box... just in case … J
