Prepare your winter car survival kit

Prepare for the unexpected. Think of the worst possible scenario and prepare for it. Always have a survival kit in your car that never gets taken out.

Essential items to have in your car:

Flashlights and extra batteries.
A multitool knife.
Extra set of clothes - so you can turn the car off and still stay warm.
Extra socks, gloves and hats.
Blankets.
Waterproof matches and candle (- used to help keep warm).
Small can - to melt snow for drinking water.
Local maps.
Tools (screwdriver, pliers, wrench).
Road flares.
Rope.
Jumper Cables.
Small shovel.
Set of tire chains.
+
Bottled water.
Food e.g nuts, dried fruit or energy bars.
Cell phone - make sure your cell phone battery is fully charged.
+
First aid kit and know how to use it.

Re: What To Do In A Winter Power Outage
During an especially cold winter and blizzard in Canada, my moms brother was told to go get firewood. Being young, strong and resourceful he did just that and ventured out into the 3-4 feet of snow and returned with wood for the fireplace.

Later that spring, after the snow melted, the next door neighbor discovered their picket fence that surrounded the house was gone.

Buy only wooden furniture.
You won't believe how nice is to see it burning on those situations.

many years ago driving in the country in the dead of winter (canada -20) with my daughter who was a year old at the time...and the car broke down. panic soon set in because my kid was with me...i bundled her up and walked about a mile to the nearest house. sorry to say the people that opened the door did not offer to help in any way...i hiked back to the car fiddled with the alternator and bam got her started! i was sooo lucky that time.
always good to have a kit in your car at all times!

Re: What To Do In A Winter Power Outage
You know, this is a major concern for me.

I live in the south and we only get a few inches of snow a year in my area and it always melts fast. We dont really have roadcrew to clear roads, no snowblowers, no tire chains-- don't need it. In my 37 years of life, I've never even had the need to drive on ice. People just stay inside until it melts.

BUT-- if we were to get an unusual snowstorm, our town would close down. No food, no gas,

If we were to have power outages, we'd have no way to stay warm. No heater, no electric blankets....

We have a small fireplace, but it is not designed to heat a room well. I truly believe it sucks more warm air out of the hosue than it does heat it. We have about 1/3 cord of firewood in the backyard (at $250-350 a cord around here, that's $$$$)

We have lanterns, candles and flashlights, but other than blankets, no idea how to stay warm.

Could cook on the charcoal grill, also have campstove. Food wouldn't be a problem, but warmth is.

thoughts?
