Brrr!!  How are you holding up in these blizzards?  C & E advocates safe driving, so unless you absolutely need to drive, stay in the safety of your home until the local authorities say it is safe to travel.

Are you still digging out your car? While we can't dig out your car for you, we've put together a couple of tips to make digging your way into the world a little easier:

  • The 1st and most important rule for digging out your car is DO NOT USE HOT WATER.  Well, unless you like the shattered glass look.
  • Before you begin, start your car and turn on the front and rear window defrosters.  This will help soften the ice and snow, and warm up your car as a bonus.
  • When you're ready to begin scraping the ice, choose a plastic ice scraper.  Plastic ice scrapers are less likely to damage or scratch the surface of the glass.
  • Use your windshield wipers ONLY after you've removed all snow and ice from the windshield.  Remember, they were not made for heavy lifting.
  • Refill your windshield fluid, if necessary, before venturing out to roads full of slush, sand and salt.
  • Work your way from the roof of the car down when you brush snow off.
  • Don't forget to brush off your mirrors, headlights and licence plates!
  • Carbon monoxide is dangerous.  Check your tailpipe and make sure it's free of snow whenever your car is running.
  • When you are ready to drive, clear any snow around your tires and under your front and end bumpers.
  • BE SAFE!
