Winter Hacks : For When You’re More Than A Little Chilly

Woo-wee! It’s blustery out there! But with these quick tips, you’ll be sure to stay warm all through the day (and night)!


Use The Fan

It may seem counterintuitive, but using the fan when it’s cold outside will actually help circulate the warm air, as it rises.

Bake Something

Using the oven will help heat up your house, so now is a great time to start all that holiday baking you’ve been thinking about.

Wear A Hat And Layers

A thick, winter jacket is a great start to staying warm, but don’t forget to pile on the layers. Wearing sweaters or thermal underclothes will help insulate your jacket and keep you warm. Don’t forget your head! We lose a lot of heat through our heads, so it’s important to remember your hat too.

Arrange Your Furniture Away From Exterior Walls

When temperatures drop, it’s time for some new feng shui! Rearrange your furniture so that couches and beds are away from exterior walls. Your rooms (and you) will stay warmer.

Forget Your Gloves

It might mean that you’ll have to do without your cell phone, but if you want to keep your hands warm, you should opt for mittens instead of gloves. Mittens keep the hands warmer by bundling the fingers together, which helps them retain heat.

Don’t Forget Your Feet

Start with insulated, weatherproof boots and make sure you layer your socks as well, wool socks will keep your keep toasty warm. Layering with a silk sock on the outside will also help because silk is a poor conductor of cold.


Some mornings the cold might make you feel like you just want to stay in bed, but these quick tips will help you stay warm even on the coldest of days. I hope they help keep you cozy all winter long.

Stay warm!

2016 Chrysler Town & Country Touring - Rath Auto Resources Fort Smith, Arkansas

2016 Chrysler Town & Country Touring

Visit 4515 Towson Avenue, Fort Smith, Arkansas 72916 to see this luxury minivan in person or give us a call at 479-646-8251.

4.0/5.0 Star Rating

The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country is a good choice for minivan shoppers looking for luxurious accommodations at an attractive price.

Versatile rear seating and cargo bay configurations; plentiful standard and optional features.
— Edmunds
The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country may look a lot like the one Chrysler has been selling for the last few years. But back in 2011, the Town & Country received a thorough rejuvenation, including a fresh interior and a new V6, which dramatically improved its driving experience and its list of standard equipment. It was finally the well-rounded product that it should have been from the beginning.

Compared to its mechanical twin — the very similar, bargain-priced Dodge Grand Caravan — the Town & Country is pricier. However, it also comes with a lot more standard equipment, including a DVD entertainment system and leather upholstery. And a recently added S model brings a sporty flair to the table.

There’s clearly a market for luxurious minivans. Particularly when loaded with options, the Town & Country undercuts comparably equipped Japanese-brand competitors by thousands of dollars without feeling excessively cheap inside. In fact, the dressy interior delivers quite a sense of occasion.

2016 Toyota RAV4 XLE - Rath Auto Resources - Fort Smith, Arkansas

Fort Smith Toyota Rav4

According to , "For years, the RAV4 has consistently been among the top-ranked small SUVs. Freshened for 2016, the cabin is quieter; the ride is smoother; it has a suite of advanced safety features; and offers a frugal hybrid version. The energetic 2.5-liter four-cylinder and smooth six-speed automatic returned 24 mpg overall in our tests of an AWD version. The hybrid version gets a terrific 31 mpg overall. Handling is responsive and very secure. Inside, the controls are clear and intuitive. While the XLE comes with the automatic climate control and sunroof, you must step up to the Limited trim to get adjustable lumbar support and the more-comfortable faux-leather seats. Access is very easy, and the rear seat is roomy. For the 2017 model year, forward-collision warning and emergency auto braking are standard."
