Picture this: walking to and from class as the cold wind seeps through your shoes and turns your toes into icicles – these are the moments when fuzzy socks can come to the rescue.

When the cold arrives, you can almost guarantee bad weather will not be far behind. Snow, sleet and even ice are all possible when temperatures start to drop. Don’t be caught off guard when heading to your car on those freezing winter mornings.

Keep an ice scraper handy to quickly clean up any weather that has built up on your car’s windshield before your commute. Your mornings will stay on schedule, even when the cold weather tries to slow you down.

Check online at Amazon to order yourself a nifty ice scraper before the bad weather arrives.
