Washington Snowfall: Is Your Vehicle Ready for Winter Driving?
Holy crap! Heavy snow is about to slam into Washington State but are you really ready?
Washington State: The First Snow of 2023
Believe it or not, snow has already arrived in Washington State. A month ago, the Washington State Patrol posted pictures from the top of Cayuse Pass of the ground covered in white snow. Yes, that summit is known for getting so much snow it is completely impassible in the winter but still. The Washington State Patrol and Washington State Department of Transportation are warning that heavy snowfall in the passes is right around the corner. Even though it is not falling yet in your neck of the woods yet, make sure you are ready because it will be very soon. Does your winter driving vehicle pass this winter prep checklist test?
Is Your Vehicle Ready for Washington's Winter?
The winters in Washington State can be brutal, especially if you plan on driving across the mountain passes. It is a good idea to make sure the vehicle you drive during winter is ready. I am not talking about winter tires or making sure you have chains, but things you should have in your car to keep you alive in case you are stranded or stuck on the side of the roadway.
