Those of us living in Southeast Michigan are just 9.5 inches away from the snowiest winter on record! Tomorrow will get us a little closer to breaking that record with up to 9 inches of snowfall possible. With the snow will come the cold and the icy roads. So if you find yourself stuck in a ditch or on slick icy roads unable to gain traction, remember this tip:
Keep kitty litter in your trunk to use under your tires to create traction in an emergency.
I was going to suggest that you use your vehicle’s floor mats instead but it seems this actually doesn’t work! The mats just end up splitting or flying backwards. So be prepared! The added weight of the kitty litter will also help weigh your vehicle down a little.
