Well, the first winter storm of the 2017-18 is making it's way through the norther tier of the United States this week. Are you ready?
The answer to this was pretty much a "NO" for me. Went to the long sleeves and a beenie at work already. First layer of the winter clothes in the squad car and actually was wearing it a couple days. I have to remember to throw a couple hand warmer packs into my duty bag when I go back to work this week.
My POV was only about 50% ready. I had already thrown my bag of winter clothes into the back, made sure my shovel and jumper cables were back there still. I added a heavy blanket (I need to find some quality wool blankets cheap one of these days) and made sure I had extra batteries for the flashlights.
This week comes a final car wash, changing the windshield fluid to winter stuff, tire rotation and a needed alignment, new windshield wiper blades, and application of RainX.
The winter months of last year I was in the police academy, so this will be my first winter on duty. Fun Fun.
