For those of us not lucky enough to live in warmer climes and still stuck dealing with winter, travel editor Serena Brower has a car safety tip for driving in snow and ice. -- AP
Most likely you have emergency items in your car -- jumper cables, a first aid kit, roadside flares. But do you travel with a bag of sand or kitty litter? You should. If you ever find yourself stuck on an icy patch, the sand or kitty litter will get you on your way in no time. Just sprinkle it around your tires, and you’ll have the traction you need to be on your way.
Great tip, Serena. Readers, how many of you are off to buy a bag of sand or kitty litter? Post a comment for a chance to win a book from our Book Club Friday guest author. -- AP
