As always, please drive safe, and if you can avoid driving at all, even better. If you don’t reeeeeally have to go out, it’s a perfect weekend to stay home with some hot chocolate and Netflix.

Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

This holiday week and weekend is one of the busiest travel days of the year, so please drive safe. Allow extra time to get to the airport if you’re flying out, and new this year is the TSA letting you check airport security wait times with their mobile app.

It’s also the holiday that some of us break out our culinary skills. Along with that comes the increased risk of kitchen accidents, especially with turkey fryers.

State Farm (who has a vested interest in helping customers avoid accidents) has some important safety tips for frying a turkey. And apparently there are enough turkey fryer accidents on military facilities that the Air Force has put out some turkey fryer guidelines as well.

If you don’t have a turkey fryer, a smoked turkey may be a delicious alternative. Or go traditional with a recipe from Butterball.

Whatever you’re eating or wherever your travels may take you, we hope you all have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
