Tips for winter

#1. If you have a satellite dish for TV reception, spray the dish with silicon to prevent snow from sticking to it and prevent proper receiving. Note: I do not have first hand experience with this tip, but I have it on good authority it works.

#2. If your car windows , doors or trunk lids freeze due to cold winter mornings or during a snowfall, use silicon spray on all rubber sealing surfaces. Another alternative is to rub talcum powder on all rubber seals. This one I know works from 1st hand experience.

My best winter tip - spend most of it in Florida or Hawaii.

I've definitely had to put silicone on my window gaskets. It does help.
