GMC is known as a maker of ruggedly capable vehicles, but which ones are the absolute best for dealing with a hard-hitting Idaho winter? In this list, we’ve laid out the best GMC models for surviving the arctic attack that is winter in the state of Idaho.
1. GMC Canyon
Small but mighty, this compact pick-up will keep you high off the icy streets and help deliver you safely through the snow. With its impressive safety features, like Lane Departure Warning to let you know when the snow is sending you off-track, you’ll feel confident in even Idaho’s worst wintertime weather.
2. GMC Yukon
As a full-size SUV, the GMC Yukon is ideal for taking on the full brunt of inclement weather — especially for those drivers with large families. Projector beam headlights keep up visibility in a blizzard and available heated seating will keep you warm and toasty.
3. GMC Sierra 2500HD
When it’s time to break-out the snow plow, you want a truck that can bear the load — that truck is the GMC Sierra 2500HD. In addition to its impressive power capabilities, this heavy-duty pick-up features a number of handling controls for advanced stability on even the snowiest roads.
Are you ready to see the best GMC models in action for yourself? Then come on down to Rob Green Buick GMC in Twin Falls, ID!
Are you up to date on your vehicle’s maintenance schedule? As we head into the coldest months of the year, you might want to consider taking your car in for some much-needed winter car prep. This is crucial, as extreme cold temperatures can have a dramatic effect on your vehicle’s ability to function, and any mechanical defect could leave you stranded in the cold.
When it comes to slippery roads, one of the most important factors is the tread on your tires. If the tread has worn too low, you could be below the legal limit for effective traction. Also, keeping your tires inflated will help a lot.
Use the Right Wiper Fluid
Wiper fluid is critical in keeping your windshield clean, but make sure you’re using a winter formula that won’t freeze.
Pack an Emergency Kit
This doesn’t directly involve vehicle maintenance, but you shouldn’t underestimate the importance of having necessary emergency supplies in the event that you do get stranded.
The family is coming to town for Thanksgiving to see you, but you haven’t thought of a festive desert yet. Coming up with the right Thanksgiving goodies can make the holidays even better. We here at Rob Green Buick GMC in Twin Falls, ID have a few fun Thanksgiving treats that will have family and friends laughing the night away.
Pilgrim Hat Cookies
The pilgrim hat cookies are a great treat for kids and adults alike. In addition to being quick to make, they’re also perfect for those on a strict budget this holiday season. All you need are some fudge-striped cookies, vanilla frosting, yellow food coloring, peanut butter cups, and orange mini Chiclets gum.
Cream-Filled Pumpkin Cupcakes
Making a batch of cream-filled pumpkin cupcakes is a little more time consuming, but well worth the effort. To make these cupcakes, you’ll need cupcake ingredients and a can of solid-pack pumpkin, with some cinnamon for added flavor.
To create the filling, you’ll need to combine cornstarch and milk in a saucepan until it runs smooth. Boil the mixture while stirring and let it cool. Add cream shortening, butter, and confectioners’ sugar. Next, add the cornstarch mixture while beating until it’s fluffy. Finally, cut a circle in the top of each cupcake and add the filling!
Turkey Pilgrim Cookies
Creating a batch of turkey pilgrim cookies is a quick and easy task, especially for such a sweet treat! All you need is some candy corn, double stuffed Oreos, chocolate and vanilla frosting, Hershey kisses, peanut butter cups, miniature marshmallows, Rolo candies, and orange food coloring.
Decorating the house, trick or treating with the kids, a costume party with friends—there’s always plenty to look forward to around Halloween, everyone’s favorite spooky holiday. But the Dance Department at the College of Southern Idaho steps things up a notch in late October by offering an incredible CSI performance of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller“.
Don’t miss CSI’s annual tribute to this ghastly classic at the Fine Arts Auditorium on October 26th at 4:30 pm. Director Julie Wright-Leggett will lead a group of students fully outfitted in zombie costumes as they pay tribute to Jackson’s one-of-a-kind choreography.
Admission is free of charge, so bring the whole family to get into the Halloween spirit like never before. The program will also feature additional jazz and contemporary dance performances, so there’s sure to be something for everyone.
In preparation for the headlining event, CSI students have been studying dance legend Bob Fosse, believed to be Michael Jackson’s inspiration as he choreographed his ground-breaking “Thriller” video.
Be sure to hang around after the curtain closes on Thriller as there will be an opportunity for kids to collect Halloween candy and get pictures with all of the zombies who performed during the evening.
