Tips for Hudson Valley snowstorms –

1- STAY HOME! That new movie, or white sale can wait. Hop on Amazon, qeue up Netflix, curl up on your couch and ride out the storm from there.

2- If you absolutely have to be on the roads then please tell someone what route you will be taking. If something should happen and you do not end up at your destination as planned, people will know where to start looking for you.

3- Keep sidewalks and stairs as clear as possible, your mail person will thank you for it.

4- Increase the distance between you and the car in front of you. Slippery roads call for extra braking time.

5- Know what roads are notoriously bad during snowstorms, the Taconic Parkway for example, and avoid them at all costs.

6- Never stop on a snow covered hill, you will never make it up again and you risk sliding into the car or truck behind you.
