The winter is just starting and already there are nights when the temperature has dropped to zero. When you live in a spread out area and have to drive to get anywhere, it’s scary to think you are frozen in place because of the weather. It takes a long time for your car to warm up and be ready to go. Black ice in the roads slows you down from making a quick retreat from a bad situation. You could also get snowed in and physically be unable to leave. Then you couldn’t escape whatever is out there.
