Winterizing TOD: Get Your Gear Ready!



  • TOD recommends you get a good shovel, snowblower and heavy-duty gloves! They are all good items to have in your house. 
  • Don't forget ice melt spray & scraper for your car windshield! 
  • Stocking up on firewood also wouldn’t hurt if you have a fireplace or wood burning stove. 
  • When trying to melt ice off your driveway, there are plenty of options available for different types of ice melts: Pet-safe option and more vegetation-safe options if you are concerned with yards or flowers.  
  • Put enough ice melt down and as soon as the ice melts, just sweep it off with a broom to prevent damage to concrete. 
  • For cars that have rear wheel drive, putting sandbags in the trunk will help with traction when roads do get icy.
