Thanksgiving Travel

Nearly 51 Million Americans are expected to travel this Thanksgiving week according to AAA, but November is notorious for some unfriendly weather events. Anything from blizzard conditions over the High Plains to a severe weather outbreak in the south are events we have seen in the past. That is why it is important to prepare before you hit the road or the take to the skies.

When traveling by car, you should always check weather and road conditions before heading out. If travel conditions are hazardous, you should not drive in them unless absolutely necessary.

When fueling up your vehicle, it is important to keep your gas tank above the half way mark. Not only to protect your vehicle from cold damage, but to make sure you get from point A to point B.

Before leaving home, check your vehicle for good tier tread, windshield wiper fluid, and the overall mechanics of your car according to FEMA.

While packing your favorite Thanksgiving recipe, be sure to include an emergency kit with Band-Aids, medications, and a flashlight. Extra food and winter gear are additional preparedness idioms to stow away. For those taking to the skies: frequently check your flight status, stay up to date with weather conditions, and pack your patience.
