Authorities Urge Caution When Driving In Rain

After a dry period, California is expected to experience heavy rainfall, which has prompted CAL FIRE to urge drivers to be safe on the road. Each year between 450,000 and 500,000 traffic accidents are reported in California alone. One person is killed every two and a half hours, and one person is injured every two minutes, as a result of a traffic collision. Ninety-five percent of crashes are caused by human error. With rain and snow those numbers change. This winter season, CAL FIRE is advising all drivers to take extra precaution while behind the wheel.

The recipe for de-skunking your dog is one quart of hydrogen peroxide, 1/3-cup baking soda and 1 tablespoon of liquid soap. With a cloth, wash it into the fur and leave for a few minutes then wash off. This needs to be done within four hours of skunking. I keep the ingredients on hand always!
