Hampton Roads Christmas Snow Watch



If there is one thing Checkered Flag fans do NOT agree on, it?s snow.  But, this time of year, even those who hate the white stuff are a little excited at the thought of a white Christmas.

Sound weird?  Well, take a look.  It's actually pretty cool.

The images look incredibly real.  But, they are, in fact, computer-generated.  No matter.  We like them.

Winterize your vehicle: Checklist



Well, it was eighty degrees less than a week ago, and now, we're using ice scrapers on our windshields.  As we all know, this is typical Hampton Roads weather, and it can turn on us without a second's notice.  Now, this fickle weather might not only take a toll on your sinuses, but on your car as well.  Now is the perfect time to start preparing for Jack Frost.  And, trust me; you do not want to put off your winterizing.  Thanks to a Checkered Flag Hyundai customer for sending me a link to this following fantastic winter…
