Getting stuck in the snow is one of those things you probably don’t think will happen, until it does. When we lived in New Mexico, I JUST HAD TO GO to town (as my husband likes to remind me). It wasn’t wintery but nothing major. On my way home, I slid off into the bar-ditch and got stuck in what looked like a blizzard. I don’t know where it came from but I was stuck as stuck could get be. When I called my husband to rescue me and the kids, he got stuck. Luckily me and the kids were rescued by a friend of ours and taken to a warm home. My husband on the other hand, had to spend the night in his truck. It was horrible. The only thing he had going for him was the fact that the truck was a diesel. He had nothing else though. I guess you just never know what can happen.
If you live in an area that expects any kind of snow, I highly recommend you keep an emergency winter car kit in your rig. You can buy some key items for low cost that will keep you safe and warm for several hours until helps arrive. Some emergency items to include are:
As you can, these are common sense, basic items. I also typed up and printed a banner to put on the container. It’s just a way to let my boys know to keep their hands off. It’s for emergencies only!
You can easily shop for and create the kit for well under $25 at walmart. What other items would you include your emergency winter car kit? Did I miss something?
