It just occured to me that I’ve ignored a very important holiday preparedness chore.
One thing that you definitely want to take care of is your car.
A couple of weeks ago, I was walking up the hill towards my truck, and looking at it square on – I noticed that the tread was worn on the inside of the tire. I though, wow, that’s not good. I have to get new tires before winter.
They didn’t wait that long. Last weekend I had a dead tire. Total goner. I was fortunate that it didn’t blow out on my way home. Now imagine that your family is in the car and you’re miles away from home.
It doesn’t help that the holidays are during the worst season of the year for driving safely. Add the price of gas, and you have a lot of good reasons to make sure your car is taken care of during the next couple of weeks.
Check all fluids and belts
Fill windshield washer
Check wiper blades
And if your car is your baby, you’ll want to make sure it has a good waxing before it gets cold!
Make your holidays safe.
