Surviving Winter Ditch Life

Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl says the recent harsh weather is a reminder for motorists to be prepared for disagreeable conditions. 

The Sheriff tells KLKS News, pack extra blankets in the car, along with a shovel, some water, flares, and make sure the cell phone is fully charged.

Warming the car every 15 minutes is a good idea, but only if the tail pipe is clear. 

Sheriff Dahl says staying out of the ditch is the best plan.  He says that can be avoided by slowing down when the roads turn slippery.
