Snow tires, block heaters, and ice scrapers, oh my!
If you have no idea what any of these items are, then you probably live in warmer climates. If you do know what these are, then you are probably wondering “Why the heck do I live here?”
Cuz that’s where your job is?
OK, OK. Got it.
So, for the former group, here is a primer for you:
- Snow tires: Apparently the expensive “All-season/All-weather” tires I have ain’t worth s#&*.
- Block heaters: When it gets too cold, the oil in the engine freezes so you need an an electric heater to … “Jeez, tell me why do I live here again?”
- Ice scraper: While you’re waiting for your oil to thaw, you might as well hang out outside the vehicle—in the same temperature that froze your oil—and scrape the snow and ice off your windshield. Fun, huh?
There you go.
