When the cold winds of winter start blowing, you better take note and prepare yourself and your car for cold mornings (and days!) ahead. Even if you’re good at driving on snow or ice, better pack in some of these things to help you survive in case anything happens.
Ask anybody who fell into a ditch or got stuck in a blizzard, and they’d tell you that they never planned on doing that at all! With the climate going crazy as it is–I mean, come on–tornadoes and floods during the winter?
Better be safe than sorry… or dead.
Things to Keep in Your Car During the Winter
Auto Jump Starters. This is especially useful for older cars, or cars with unreliable batteries. Even if you manage to arrive at your destination, if your battery dies on you, you may be unable to start the car and you’ll get stuck! Better yet, you might want to get a jump starter with an air compressor. During the winter, the air inside your tires may lose some of their pressure because of the cold. The air compressor will come in handy to keep your tire pressures stable.
