If you’ve lived in the Northeast long enough, you know the winter season can be tough. While winter weather can be lovely to look at, it can be treacherous to live through. Roads and sidewalks can be slick and slippery, and it takes a bit more preparation, care, and caution to traverse the winter landscape. In order to stay safe in the winter weather, it’s essential to take your time.
Taking your time can ensure that you are able to make the best decisions during inclement weather. If you’re not running from one location to the next, you’ll have the ability to dress appropriately for the weather, plan your trip based on the predicted safest route, and when you’re walking, look down and choose your steps wisely. As with most things in life, a proper strategy can help to avoid pitfalls that may be in your way. The best method to planning an effective strategy? Taking the time to do it right.
