We dread it, don't we? Even though this winter weather allows us to do so many things we love in the outdoors, we still don't like it when it gets really cold. And, guess what? Neither do our cars. Weather extremes definitely put more pressure on the moving pieces to perform and maintain function. So, what can you do to make it a bit easier as the temperature drops?
We are gearing up for our next class with Family & Community Support Services (Town of Canmore). Their Life Skills sessions are free of charge and provide excellent knowledge sessions on a number of topics. This fall's series has four sessions: Budget Basics, Basic Car Maintenance, Rent Smart, and Budget Friendly Soups & Stews.
