As I sit here and think about the upcoming winter and the weather conditions that accompany it, I am reminded about the hurry and hustle of the winter season. Be aware of your surroundings and take caution when the temperature drops and moisture exists on surface areas. Set your alarm for 15 minutes earlier and utilize the time on the road by driving defensively and appropriately for road conditions. Also, be looking for black ice on parking lots and sidewalks. Stay safe and enjoy winter, whether you are inside or out!
