In our area, winter is a very difficult and concerning time to drive. We live in a very remote area and we have to travel on narrow, winding roads to get home. In the winter, the tension intensifies due to the fast-changing weather. If we are away from home and an intense ice storm hits, we are faced with the potential that we will be unable to drive the roads. Worse case scenario is that we are stuck on the roads – and many miles from shelter.
