|Clean 'er up!|
With all the snow, salt and turnip juices all over the roads, your car gets pretty nasty looking, fast. And apparently, salt can eat cars too. After time, the corrosive element can eat away the paint on your car, lead to rusting problems and even damage your vehicle's undercarriage. Good for roads, not so good for cars. Because the salt is activated by heat, the corrosive effects speed up when the temperatures rise. Plus, it makes your car look really ugly, really fast.

New York has a lot of laws. Turns out, you can get a ticket for starting your car to warm it up and not staying with it. So no running out to get it going and then running back inside the house to grab your things. Apparently, your heating car becomes a nuisance to society and tickets can start in the triple digits. The only way this is ok, is if you have an automatic car starter and the vehicle is locked while running.
Another weather law up here is that you have a legal obligation to remove the snow from your property in a timely manner. By law, sidewalks must be cleared of snow by four hours of the last flake falling. However, shoveling can wait until the next morning if the snow stops falling between 9:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. Pretty sure that's a law you won't find on the books in Arkansas! In NYC, fines for the violation start at $50 and can carry $100 penalties for further tickets.
Good grief y'all...all we thought we had to worry about was finding proper winter coats!
