Winter is here - finally

If you live in Wisconsin, you have been waiting for Winter. HERE IT IS. It has been snowing most of the day and we are to get 6 - 7 inches before it is finished. When driving remember:
1. Drive defensive - you can not always trust the other guy has his car under control.
2. Don't follow too close
3. Assume the road will be slippery especially at STOP SIGNS.
4. The bigger the ruts in the open road, the slower you must go.
5. Before you leave your parking space, clean ALL your windows of snow and ice.
6. If you do not have to go, put it off until tomorrow. Accidents happen in weather like this!
7. The #1 cause of accidents is SPEED or TOO FAST FOR CONDITIONS!!!!!!

Be safe - Drive safe.

1st Real Snow this Season

It is January 12, 2012 and it is finally snowing this season. Oh, we had a few flurries here and there and even an inch of snow in December but it melted quickly. This storm could deliver 5-6 inches. THAT MEANS WINTER DRIVING HABITS NEED TO BE USED. Speed needs to be controlled based on the conditions, clean ALL your windows of snow and ice, watch for black ice on the roads and sidewalks, and most of all braking needs to be planned ahead. Remember, SPEED or TOO FAST FOR CONDITIONS is the number one cause of accidents. Have a safe winter driving season.
