Leaves have fallen and frost is in the air. There is 12" of snow on the ground, the windows on the car are ice-covered and the kids are singing: "No School!" Now you lovingly look over at your spouse and say, "Honey, have you seen the window scraper, the shovel, the ice melt and did you get the car starter installed?"
Avoid the panic, plan ahead. Put a bag of kitty litter in the trunk. Get yourself prepared! Winters come and winters go. Please enjoy the winter season and be safe.
