As if the news of summer being over isn't bad enough, looks like parts of BC is already starting to snow. Well, so much for the Fall season; might as well start playing the Christmas music and skip Thanksgiving and Halloween altogether. Whether you blame global warming or you believe it's a weather anomaly, experts are calling it a continuation of La Niña which is described as, "a cold event." This event, according to the National Ocean Service, brings a colder winter in the Northwest.
It is probably a safe bet to make that this winter is going to be COLD so make sure your vehicle is in tiptop shape to avoid any problems with worsening road conditions. If we have a longer and colder winter, we can expect to see more pot-holes, more damage to tires, more salt damage to vehicle parts and increased wear and tear on the overall life of our vehicles. Schedule a time to get your tires changed to winter tires in advance because this season is going to be a pretty busy one. Chances are, if you're in the thick of snowfall, you probably won't get an appointment to get your tires swapped out so be the early bird.
Remember to drive slow, maintain more distance from the car in front and pump your brakes rather than applying full pressure. Locking your tires by fully compressing your brakes will cause your car to skid while it struggles for traction.
