Have you prepared your car for the ups and downs of an Ohio winter? Especially if you have children, you want to make sure you have what you need in case of an emergency.
Here are a few things I always have on hand in my car:
- An extra set of mittens/gloves and a hat – for both parents and kids!
- A warm blanket
- A small shovel and an ice scraper
- A bag of kitty litter (it gives more weight to the back end of your vehicle and can give you traction under your tires if you get stuck).
And remember to secure all of these items safely, ideally in the trunk, so in the case of a sudden stop these items don’t become projectiles in your car.
What are the items that you keep in your vehicle to ensure winter preparedness?
