Watching palm trees swaying in the gentle breeze warm my heart. Watching evergreen trees bowing under the blustery gale glaciates my brain. Living in a rural area atop a lush mountain, I have come to know wintry weather well. We have come to embrace the shorter days and colder nights. Fresh snowfall, wind-chilled cheeks, and living for months swaddled within layers of clothing are all merely part of winter weather. Braving sometimes as many as six frigid months of winter each year, Northern territories have learned to embrace the cold months with these top tips and tools to weather winter like an Arctic pro.
Top Tips & Tools to Weather Winter
Like an Arctic Pro
I recently partnered with Kungs, Finnish producer of premium quality snow brushes and ice scrapers, tested in the harshest of Arctic conditions to share some fun expert tips and tools to help us to weather winter from one of the coldest countries on Earth- Finland.
Use the Cold to Your Advantage
Dress Like You Mean It
Winter wardrobe is one of the main reasons that winter-haters despise the cold, they simply dislike or don't know how to dress for the cold temps. Take a tip from the people of the Arctic, before heading outdoors, make sure you're properly layered up. Wearing a warm winter coat is a start, adding waterproof, lined gloves, wool socks, a scarf, a hat, and snow boots. Several layers of clothing helps, too. Here's another Arctic pro tip- remember to allow extra preparation time to get into and out of those extra layers of clothing.
Winterize Your Car
Any responsible motorist knows that you must take car of your vehicle, if you want your vehicle to take care of you. Prepare to handle winter conditions by stocking your car with an emergency kit, winter tires for better traction, and thoroughly check your battery before the cold takes effect. In winter precipitation, maintaining maximum visibility is very important. Keep a snow brush and a durable ice scraper close at hand. A recommended pro tip and tool- use your ice scraper to de-ice windshield wipers. I recommend Kungs Ice Scrapers and Snow Brushes, available at Sears Auto Centers across the Northeast. Kungs Snow Brushes and Ice Scrapers combine Scandinavian design and ergonomics with the durability needed to handle winter weather with ease.
Enjoy Winter Indoors
My family knows that winter months are the perfect time for wrapping up in blankets and snuggling up to a warm fireplace, mug of hot cocoa. Always know that even the top Arctic pros know how to enjoy the warmth and comfort of a cozy winter day indoors with family and friends. Many of us dread winter weather, however, winter is a special season to enjoy with the necessary preparations.
With Kungs Snow Brushes and Ice Scrapers, a hot cup of tea, and my layers of clothes, I'm ready for an adventurous winter on the road! Kungs just launched a line of environmentally friendly products with a three-year warranty in the U.S., exclusively sold at Sears Auto Centers.
