Safe Driving Tips For Young Drivers

Safe Driving Tips For Young Drivers

Photo by Valerie Kaarna on Unsplash   With August, we're approaching the back-to-school season. Our family is preparing to send our daughter off to her freshman year of college, and it's an emotional time. For many parents, sending their children off to college is a bittersweet moment. It's also a scary moment. While we're excited for our daughter to start this new chapter in her life, we also worry about all of the dangers that come with being on your own for the first time.   While we trust our daughter's judgment, we worry about her being around so many other new, haphazard "I'll live forever" drivers. We just want to make sure she has the tools she needs to do well. With this new step f ... read more

7/20: A Decade in the Aurora Community

7/20: A Decade in the Aurora Community

As Independence day rolls in and families in the Aurora community celebrate with food, fireworks, and good company, July marks a significant moment for Aurora, Colorado. Shortly after midnight on July 20th, 2012, life changed forever for our city. A killer struck at the Midnight premiere of the third Batman film by Christopher Nolan, “The Dark Knight Rises.” In mere minutes, this lone killer’s evil act cut short the lives of 13 people, left scars for many survivors, as well as countless emotional scars on those attending and those witnessing the aftermath.  Shock and disbelief followed this cowardly attack. There were no motives beyond a person’s desire to commit a heinous murder. How could anyone do such a thing in our town? “This isn’t what Aurora is like... this isn’t who we are,” some said.    When the numbness left us, anger settled in. There was an element of insult to the crime that someone could perpetrate mass m ... read more

Clear Eyes on the Road

Clear Eyes on the Road

Photo by Holly Mandarich on Unsplash​ While primarily temperate in the summer, Colorado weather can be unpredictable. We know to expect hot, dry summers, but at any time, unexpected rains can come– just as unexpected snow comes in late Spring. The long, hot summer can wear out our windshield wipers, cracking the rubber.    It’s vital to always have clear eyes on the road when you’re driving. Just as distractions can cause terrible accidents, so can a lack of perception of potential threats due to an obscured or cloudy windshield. It’s essential to check on the condition of your wipers and make sure they are at their best.   An obstructed wiper, unable to cross a windshield gracefully, is ineffe ... read more

Congratulate Your Grads and Thank Your Mothers Through Auto Maintenance

Photo by Jakob Rosen on Unsplash Mother’s Day and Graduation 2022 have nearly arrived.  2022 is marching on rapidly, and we’re nearly halfway through the year. Colorado is getting on with things, even though gas prices are still very high. With any luck, things will calm down and prices will drop again. But right now, it’s putting a damper on the events we travel long distances to, just as COVID-19 has.   Both May and June have some anticipated travel in them where we’ll potentially need to drive long distances. It’s Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 8th. And in June, we can expect the new graduates of 2021-2022 to march to Pomp & Circumstance in rented robes and mortar hats once aga ... read more

Cyclone Bombs and Safe Driving Practices

Cyclone Bombs and Safe Driving Practices

Image by Comfreak from Pixabay   Believe it or not, Bomb cyclones are a real thing that Coloradans must brace for in our uncertain climate. A bomb cyclone, or ‘explosive cyclogenesis,’ is pretty much exactly how it sounds – a meteorological bomb! When storms decrease in pressure by 24 millibars or more in a 24-hour period, this means they are strengthening, creating primary conditions for a bomb cyclone – causing intense precipitation and very high winds.  They can occur any time of the year in any area of the world where the conditions and ingredients are present. The sudden dip in pressure can potentially cause a bomb cyclone with lots of rain, snow, high winds, a ... read more
