Damn you, WIND!
When the heat is on full in the summer a nice breeze cools you and helps rock the trees creating a wonderful environment.
As the temperatures drop, the wind becomes our enemy. Today, we are in battle!
Whether you are driving down a well travelled highway or the back grids of Saskatchewan, the wind can be a devil.
The creation of black ice. The finger drifts that slow traffic and potentially push you into the ditch.
The joys and the sorrow of a Prairie Winter. We embrace them, cause what else are we doing?
Grab your fleece, long johns and the highest Sorrel boots you can find, make this winter your friend.
I know, its exhausting.
Keep yourself safe by stocking up on goodies for your car. Make those winter 2016 ‘RoadTrips’ fun by preplanning.
Extra blankets, booster cables, tire pressure, how about tucking away a $20 bill in the car. Something to snack on if you need a boost.
YOU KNOW! Your dad probably told you all the things you needed.
If you are an outdoors kind of person, I think you’ll already have it figured out. Layers help, but also don’t get bogged down with too much gear!
Well, I’m off to battle the elements. And tell that DAMN WIND to just SETTLE DOWN so we can actually – ENJOY this winter!
