Cold Weather Tips

Cold Weather Tips –

It’s shaping up to be a colder than normal winter.  Many areas not used to low temperatures are trying to survive these cold spells.  Here are some tips to help you stay warm this cold season.

1. Waterproof winter boots and shoes with WD-40


I love this tip, particularly for areas that are getting snow fall when they usually don’t.

One of the things I hate most about the winter is scraping up ice from my windshield in the mornings. You can stop that from happening by covering your windshield with a blanket or cardboard the night before.

A couple of gallon size Ziploc bags are easy to pull on and off your side mirrors.
