6. I alwasys bring at least $100 in cash. You never know.
9. Check your State Transportation Office's rush hour advice. MD's said to avoid bridges and tunnels betwwen 9:00 AM and 9:00 PM on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving so I apply that to all other times.
10. Wear sensible clothing like jeans, sneakers and a coat; and keep a blanket in the "cab" of the car in case you get stuck or have an accident.
4. I checked my spare tire. Sure enough, it is starting to look like a snow tire for a tractor trailer so no pumpkin pie for me this year. Thanks for the reminder.
