Here comes winter and cold weather. As the temperature starts to drop around the country and snow starts showing up in the forecast, it’s time to get ready for winter. I found some apps that will come in handy as the seasons change once again to that freezing time of year.
Never be caught off guard by winter again. The Winter Wake Up app works like an ordinary alarm clock, but wakes you up earlier if there has been freezing weather or snow the night before. That way, you’ll have plenty of time to clear your driveway, defrost your car and still leave for work on time. Free for iPhone and Android devices.
If you travel a lot in the winter, the free Winter Survival Kit app on the iPhone and Android platform comes in handy if you find yourself stranded. It helps you identify your exact current location, call 911, notify your friends and family qnd calculate how long you can run your engine to keep warm and stay safe from carbon monoxide poisoning. It’s from the folks at North Dakota State University, up where they really know winter.
One more… the Road Trip Weather App for the iPhone. It costs 99-cents but is very handy. It provides a personalized weather forecast for your drive based on WHERE you will be and WHEN you will be there. Enter your route & departure time and weather data populates on the map , showing potentially hazardous conditions.
Try as you might, there’s no stopping it. Winter is coming.
