We are now coming into the winter driving season and its time to remind you of where to get the weather, special weather statements and road reports.
When grandma's house is over the river and though the woods, we need to know we can get there safely and in time for the festivities. This can be hard as quite a few of our customers are in areas where snow abounds and driving to the store can be an all day event.
Personally, I live in the middle of nowhere and have been snowbound for days at a time. We heat with propane and keep a generator close by. My favorite website for all my weather needs is: Wunderground.com. This site has the reports from the National Weather Service, but also has personal weather stations that you can view the weather along the way. This is a neat feature as most of these are updated every few moments.
Another place to go is Google. In the search area, type in your state and pass conditions like, Washington pass reports This should be a good starting place for information.
Be safe and also, be prepared
