Tips for Tackling Winter Weather

– Layer clothing and wear thermals to help keep you warm and dry.
– Ensure you wear a hat, gloves, thick socks and shoes that match your activity and weather conditions.

– Ensure your tires are appropriate for the weather conditions and if you plan on taking any kind of road-trip, check road conditions before you leave.
