Getting Through This Winter

March 07, 2019

While we are heading into March from February, we all will be going about our business traveling on the roads and highways. In the Mid and Eastern Regions of the US, the weather has been rough.

Pete GardnerI’m sure the area will get more snow and ice storms along with all of the misery that comes along with it. I hope that you are prepared to deal with in-climate conditions and have your vehicles checked for safety and stocked with all the tools and materials you need. Some of you will probably be out on an emergency call to repair a heating unit sometime during this season. A well-prepared vehicle is essential to illiminate any extra trips and aggravation that comes along with it.

On the bright side, the gas prices have gone way down and expenses for traveling this winter should be a lot less. I know cheaper gas prices can provide larger profit margins. I guess we all should enjoy that while it lasts, no telling when they will rise again and we dread filling that tank.

We need to also be aware of the amount of children that will be out and about. Please be cautious in your travels and mindful of the increased traffic and pedestrians moving about. Some will be looking at their cell phones while walking and driving and not paying any attention to what they are doing, please don’t be one of them. We all want to be safe and happy this winter so please be careful!
