Homeowner Policy for Blizzard Damage

Recent storms along the Atlantic coast in places like New Jersey has left the people’s property with significant damage. Damage incurring from heavy wind, snow and ice is covered by standard homeowner insurance policies. Damage from burst pipes, along with melted snow from the roof which seeps into the ceilings and wall is covered as well, but flood damage is generally not covered. To cover flood damage, special flood insurance is required.

Cars trapped in snow

But which of the myriad AWD vehicular choices can be expected to perform best under the snowiest conditions?

We scoured automakers’ spec sheets to compile a list of 20 affordable cars/station wagons and car-based crossover SUVs from the 2016 model year – featured in the accompanying slide show – that can be expected to handle the worst Mother Nature can dish out this winter. Each can be fitted with AWD for less than $50,000 and feature a much-higher-than-average ground clearance (the distance between the pavement and the lowest part of a vehicle) that enables them to traverse moderately snow-packed roads or driveways without unduly scraping the undercarriage or becoming snowbound. In addition, all offer winter-friendly amenities like heated seats, and are every bit as enjoyable to pilot on dry pavement as they are capable in the snow. Always slow down as the weather worsens. Leave extra room between your vehicle and the traffic ahead – a car’s brakes won’t work as well as they would on dry pavement. And keep an eye out for frozen patches, especially on bridges and overpasses which tend to freeze sooner than paved roads.
