Fall To Winter Driving In Montana – Be Prepared & Aware
This has to be one of the best summer into fall seasons that Montana has seen in many years. At least in Central Montana it has been. Hardly any wind to whip the trees and strip every single leaf from them. Not a single hard freeze or heavy wet snow (yet!) to break limbs from the trees. However, it does appear that more of the fluffy will be on it's way this week, and with the quick reminder we had a few days ago, it's time to reset the vehicle list for the winter and be prepared for Old Man Winter.
As the snow does fly, often we are unprepared, even in Montana. By that statement, I mean rotating what we carry in our vehicles when it comes to seasons. Think tow ropes instead of water ski ropes. Insulated gloves versus fencing gloves. Even sleeping bags for picnic table cloths. Being prepared for those adverse conditions beforehand is always handy! Always remember, chance favors the prepared mind!
