Now that the temperatures are dropping, and fast, you are probably taking your swimsuit, flip flops, and beach towel out of your car. In their place, don’t forget to stock up on cold weather necessities before winter weather hits. If you prepare yourself for the first big snow before it hits, you will thank yourself.
Here are some winter weather essentials to keep in your car:
- Get yourself both a quality ice scraper and a quality shovel. You are likely to use the former more than the latter, but if your car ever gets buried in snow, you will be glad to have a shovel available.
- Pack yourself some extra gloves, an extra hat, and maybe even an extra winter coat. If you ever forget one of these garments or lose one, you will have a backup.
- Upgrade your emergency kit to include a quality blanket and perhaps heating packs, just in case you find yourself in a chilly emergency.
- And as always, keep a first-aid kit, a flashlight with extra batteries, and a spare cell phone charger safely tucked away in your car.
