Winter weather comes just as many people are trying to make their way home after Christmas. With rain that's already fallen and strong wind and snow in the forecast, drivers are watching the roads carefully. It requires full attention behind the wheel especially in the dark. One tire store owner says beware of black ice. He recommends lowering tire pressure to 30 or 32 pounds and making sure you have good tread. He also suggests keeping a flashlight, warm clothing and something to eat in your car in case you get stranded.
