North Coast Hot Jobs Dec. 1

Hello fellow job seekers. Here is the link to this week's North Coast Hot Jobs listing.https://www.scribd.com/doc/248656375/North-Coast-Hot-Jobs-Dec-1-2014

So, we recently had some snowfall in the area. The forecast calls for below freezing temperatures for part of the rest of the week. This could lead to slippery road conditions, such as frost and/or black ice. I have lived in cold weather climates such as Minnesota, Eastern Washington and Alaska. People there are familiar with how to drive under these conditions. People here are not accustomed to driving on slippery roads, so they tend to not drive carefully. So, in this location when the temperatures drop below freezing you have to be aware of the road conditions and also how others are driving.

To those of you who are not experienced driving on slippery roads, here are some tips. Remember that four wheel drive does not give you permission to drive like normal. It is still difficult to slow down. Keep adequate room between your vehicle and the one ahead of you. Slow down ahead of time when coming to a stop sign or red light. Accelerate gradually. Do not make any jerky movements. Keep all windows clean (no peephole driving).

That's all for this week. Have a good one.
