入冬指南

美国应对暴风雪的准备工作和物资

导读:作为一个南方人,刚来美国时我面对暴风雪的准备工作严重不足。

我的亲身经验

刚来美国时,我开的是一辆前驱的马自达6。进入冬季,有天下班高峰突然毫无预兆下起了小雪,上千辆车堵在了50号公路上:只要一点小坡,前面的车打滑,后面的就谁也过不去了。我见势不妙提前下了高速,结果没走多远也困在了雪地里,本来想强行调头绕行,结果旁边的居民说,你还是停这儿吧,前面刚有辆警车掉沟里了……最后还是信小信开着当时刚买的 ML350 过来接我回家。从那以后,我就坚定了「只买四驱车」的决心。

那时候住公寓,没有车库。有一年17英寸(43厘米)的暴风雪,小区的车被埋得连亲妈都认不出来了。

听说你的车停这儿了?

作为一个南方人,刚来美国时我面对暴风雪的准备工作严重不足,吃过亏后总结了这里的经验教训。

暴风雪来临前准备的工具和物资

车罩 Car Cover

当时我的两辆车都结了冰碴子,很心疼,并且担心融化时水会渗入车厢。其实如果提前买一个车罩,就没有这个问题了。我2018年买了 single house,终于有车库啦!如果你车停在露天、并且所在区域冬天经常下雪,想爱惜一点的话可以买个车罩,根据车型选好尺寸即可。

  1. 主要是你们那儿大雪的情况很少,所以整个城市的除雪应急设施应该不是很完善。首先汽车轮胎要换成雪胎(再不济也要是比较好的四季胎),雪刷雪铲是必不可少的,用于化雪的盐也是需要的。雪地靴有必要,但是不需要太高,只要有滑雪裤(snow pants)就可以了。

    1. @北北 华府每年下雪就那么一两次、两三次,估计很多人都没有准备雪胎、化雪盐。。你是在哪里?

      1. @Derek Yang 我是在密西根,靠近五大湖,冬天大雪是很常见的,最早10月下雪可以下到来年4月,所以这儿对于暴风雪的应变措施要比DC那儿好很多。DC的气候和国内包邮区的气候差不多,所以来一场大雪,确实会带来很多不便,就像今年国内南方好多水管都被冻裂一样。我们这儿冬天如果停电,很多人家都自备发电机发电。另外用来烧壁炉的柴火也都是准备的满满的。那种因为暴风雪抢购把超市都卖空的情况比较少见。

        1. @北北 我 2 月份在 Cleveland 呆过一个月,下大雪的时候风从湖边刮过来确实很猛,应该和密歇根比较接近。话说我家壁炉还没开过火呢,真浪费啊。
