Here is a must have list
1. Good all season tires for the city and flat out snow tires for mountain driving.
2. Always keep some emergency supplys in the vehicle . blanket , flash light , solar charger for cell phone, water ,and non pareishable snack.
3. Keep a new bottle of windsheild wash in your car , the mag chloride used on the streets will make it impossible to drive without wash .
4.Have your local oil change company test your antifreeze before each winter season. you want it to be good to at least 20 below zero for Colorado weather
5.Finally,t you need some good winter wiper blades to keep that windsheild from icing up while your driveing
The time when people find themselves in trouble is usually when people aren't in touch with their changing environment.....staying tuned and not taking unnecessary risks could be a "life saver!"
Just keeping it real!
There are some important and even life saving things to consider in the Colorado mountains. First, the car must be kept in top shape as to normal maintenance. Oil changes, windshield washer blades, windshield and rear window defrosters working well, etc. It is also really important to have the proper winter tread tires (like Blizzak). The best radial tires may be of no real value in plodding your way through a big snow storm. It is good in Colorado to a box of emergency items in the trunk including - gloves, snow boots, blankets, water, food, flashlight and batteries, a gallon of windshield washer fluid, paper towels, a shovel, and more. These storms can start fast with no warning so preparation is essential. The weathermen and other safety gurus say 'never let your gas tank get below half in the winter months'. It also helps to have a full tank for the weight in the rear if you have a rear wheel drive vehicle.
