Do you have a winter emergency kit in your car ?

This is a question that everyone across the US should be asking.  Especially during these winter months, it is imperative that before you go outsidethat you are prepared.  Thanks to Gita Bantwal for providing this checklist

I do not like to drive in winter when there is snow. I am glad that I have a job where we can cancel appointments if there is too much snow unlike other professions where they have to go to work in bad weather.

There are times we too need to go out in bad weather so it is good to be prepared.

I always make sure that my car has a full tank of gas when we are expecting major snow storms.

Other things that I have most of the time are  :

 small snow shovel

kitty litter

flashlight

booster cable

hand warmers

cell phone and car charger 

windshield de-icer spray

and I  always carry bottled water and some snacks - protein bars

The most important item for me is the cell phone . I never leave home without it.

Have the jumpers, army wood blanket and flash light, etc. But winter driving does not scare and the jeep is loaded up, headed to swish swish ski today just across the border into Canada. Dress warm, appropriately and get outside, some lungs filled with fresh air!

Good reminders.

Wallace has the right idea. Please don't forget extra cords and car chargers.

Lloyd,

We all probably should have some type of emergency kit in cars but most of us do not.
