- Practice Areas
After a long, gorgeous fall (which actually felt a lot like summer), we are arriving at the famous Colorado winter. Ski fanatics are giddily watching the peaks turn white, parents are trying to find last season’s snow boots and hoping they still fit their kids, we’re all turning off our sprinkler systems and looking forward to the relative calm that comes with reduced yard work. Oh, and there are a few fun holidays fast approaching!
It is also time to winterize your car for Colorado’s unpredictable roads!
Below, I share some tips that should help keep you and your family safe this winter as you head out and up and into the woods.
From the Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles:
I see one important thing missing from their emergency kit: food! I know that if I get stuck in the snow with my kids, they won’t give a rip if we have engine oil, but they’ll stay calm and happy if I feed them.
Also, how about a window scraper? Make sure you keep one of those handy… I have a friend who never remembers to buy a scraper and ends up using old CD cases that she finds under her seat. Not ideal.
Stay safe out there this winter and have a blast!
