Winter weather around Chatham, IL, and the surrounding areas can be rough. Temperatures often drop below freezing or beyond, bringing snow, sleet, and slick driving conditions. With the cold comes the need for careful driving and extra preparedness and precaution. New to the area or not sure what to do to prepare yourself and your Honda for winter conditions? Here’s a handy guide to help get you started.

An Ounce of Prevention

With winter weather preparedness, as with anything, an ounce of prevention is often worth a pound of cure. So we suggestion preparing in some of the following ways so that when winter weather comes to Taylorville and the nearby areas, it doesn’t get you down.

Pack a “winter supply box” in your Honda. Prepare for the worse-case-scenario. Include anything you might need in the event you get stranded with little to no cell reception (but do bring a phone and charger). That includes things like a flashlight, road flares, a first-aid kit, preferably with heat wraps, blankets (mobile electric blankets with an a/c converter are a good idea), a change of clothes for the driver and passengers, extra gloves, a radio, sand bags for traction, not to mention easily openable non-perishable food, water, and ice scrapers.
