If you believe the Canadian Farmer's Almanac, we're in for a tough winter across the country. Colder. More snow. Just like the winters of yesteryear (you remember, the ones where we had to walk to school in the snow, barefoot and up-hill both ways).
Some key predictions from the Almanac:
- A big snow storm will hit sometime between Dec. 8-11
- There could be some warm-ups, including New Year's Day, to welcome 2017
- More snow than last year, with some major storms hitting Toronto
Whether you believe the dire predictions or not, it is definitely a good idea to make sure you're ready to drive in less than optimal conditions. We've done a round-up of some our top winter driving posts to help you (and your car) get ready for winter!
