Look at this invention. It is a snow eating robot, and not only does it eat the snow, it also makes these nice snow blocks for you as it dumps it out the back of the robot.
The thing is expensive though, 8 grand, but it could be worth it. Check out the video of it in action at the below link.
For many of us right now, it is the holiday season, and with that said, its going to be cold and winter like out there in the streets of snow and crowded shopping stores. It is very easy to get sick in the winter, and following these tips below, you can help reduce the chance of yourself getting sick too!
- Avoid touching your face with your hands. Cold viruses can easily enter your body through the eyes and nose.
- Speaking of hands, wash them. Frequently.
- Avoid people who are sick, is possible.
- Keep your surroundings clean. Cold viruses can live for up to three hours on the phone reciever or stair railing, so make sure you are wiping those down with disinfectant if a sick person has used them.
- Take your echinacea at the first sign of sickness.
- Get your vitamin C too — try drinking orange juice every day, for instance.
And if you’re the one with the cold? Be polite — cover your mouth when you sneeze and wash your hands often to prevent spreading the virus.
Winter is right around the corner and already more than half of the nation has received snow and that means time to get the car ready for the winter. About 950 people die in winter related accidents per year. Preparing your car for slippery roads and harsh weather is really simple, but there can be more to it than you might think.
There’s a nice, convenient checklist at this site where you can keep yourself up-to-date on what you need to do: http://www.cartalk.com/content/features/WinterDriving/
Also keep something crunchy in the backseat, it helps keep you active. Unsalted popcorn or some baked chips won’t make you as thirsty so you can keep both hands on the wheel. If you feel sleepy open the back window on the passenger side, the airflow will blow towards your neck where external temperature really affects you. Don’t get too cold, too much shivering can affect your driving. Do not listen to talk shows.
Best wishes, God speed and safe driving.
