    5 (random) tips for surviving in the snow

    I saw this on yahoo and it made me laugh:

    Check out our five tips for driving in the snow in Britain, though really, unless you absolutely have to travel, we suggest you avoid driving at all and stay at home.


    Be prepared, Be ready for anything
    At this time of year it's worth carrying around a few extras in your boot - just in case.



    Slow down, Drive as slowly as possible...
    It may sound like stating the obvious, but it's easier to tackle the snow at low speeds.



    If you're stranded..., A few tips to help you when you're stranded.
    Don't panic if you do get stranded - there's plenty you can do to survive the ordeal.



    Think winter, Have your car checked out for winter.
    It's always a good idea to ensure your car is well maintained, but this is particularly important in winter.

    Make sure that you can accessorise and take along a make-up touch up pack, just in case you're featured caught in a tail-back, on the local news.

    Alcohol can double as a de-icer. You won't be short of ice.

    Wear a hat, even if it doesn't match your gloves and scarf.

    Think carefully about taking advice from anyone with 'death' in their name.

    id say use your roughest shoes. It is WAAYY slippery out here.

    NEVER....Eat yellow snow;-)
