Snow and ice storms can quickly turn even modern-day Interstate Highways into very cold parking lots. What if you skid off an icy winter road into a ditch and have to wait for help to come and tow you out? Are you ready?
My Mom always carried her “In-Case Pack” in the trunk of her car. I have carried on the tradition. My children call it “Mom’s What If Stuff”.
Here is what mine has in it:
- Warm blankets
- First aid kit
- Extra hats, scarves, and gloves
- Snacks – granola, nuts, trail mix
- Drinking water
- LED Flashlights
- Dashboard cell phone charger
- Snow scraper
- Large container (with a cover) of kitty litter (for emergency tire traction, or invest in a traction mat)
- Emergency flares
- A good book or two
It’s not too late for this winter, and an emergency vehicle kit is a wise idea in any season! Before you and your family encounter some bad weather that can stop you in your tracks, put together your personal “What If” bag. Keep it in your vehicle, ready to go. It can make an enormous difference.
