                                               WINTER DRIVING TIPS
      •   Allow enough time. Trips to the mountains can take longer during winter that other times of the year, especially if you
          encounter storm conditions or icy roads. Get an early start and allow plenty of time to reach your destination.
      •   Keep your gas tank full. It may be necessary to change routes or turn back during a bad storm or you may be caught in a
          traffic delay.
      •   Keep windshield and windows clear. You may want to stop at a safe turnout to use a snow brush or scraper. Use the car
          defroster and a clean cloth to keep the windows free of fog.
      •   Slow down. A highway speed of 65 miles per hour may be safe in dry weather, but an invitation for trouble on snow and ice.
          Snow and ice make stopping distances much longer, so keep your seat belt buckled and leave more distance between your
          vehicle and the vehicle ahead. Bridge decks and shady spots can be icy when other areas are not. Remember to avoid
          sudden stops and quick direction changes.
      •   Be more observant. Visibility is often limited in winter by weather conditions. Slow down and watch for other vehicles that
          have flashing lights, visibility may be so restricted during a storm that it is difficult to see the slow moving equipment.
      •   When stalled, stay with your vehicle and try to conserve fuel while maintaining warmth. Be alert to any possible exhaust or
          monoxide problems.

                                Hooker and Manns have a new survival guide called Nine Words
                                                        Women Use

                                 1. FINE: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to
                                shut up.
                         2. FIVE MINUTES: This means half an hour.
                 3. NOTHING: This is the calm before the should be on your toes. Arguments that beginning with
               “nothing” usually end in “fine”.
          4.   GO AHEAD: This is a dare, not permission. Don’t do it!!!!
          5.   LOUD SIGH: This is actually not a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh
               means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you
               about “nothing”.
          6.   THAT’S OKAY: This is one of the most dangerous statements a woman can make to a man. “That’s okay” mean
               she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.
          7.   THANKS: A woman is thanking you. Do not question or faint. Just say you’re welcome. (Clause: If the woman
               says “thanks a lot”, that is pure sarcasm and she is not thanks you at all. Do not say you’re welcome….that will
               bring on a “whatever”)
          8.   WHATEVER: Is a woman’s way of saying go to H***.
          9.   DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT, I GOT IT: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman
               has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking “what’s
               wrong?”, to which the woman’s response will normally be “Nothing”.
                                                         Thanks for listening!
